Remember that beautiful kitchen I posted about yesterday? Well those same designers also had the opportunity to stage a 3000 square foot home. I read that when it came to the master bedroom they faced a major dilemma with no more money and a lack of time. They needed a headboard so within 24 hours they created a stencil and with a Sharpie pen they went to work. It cost them $22 and took 9 hours to complete. I don't know about you but it inspires me to go pick up some metallic Sharpies and do something with my life:-). You can go here to read more details about how they made the stencil.
