Well, it took me a few weeks to get my bedroom done. I had a whole other plan but am very pleased with how it turned out. I used the Kind Thoughts Brocade Small Décor Stencils. I used a shade lighter mixed with gold for the first time stenciling. After they had dried I went over spontaneously with just straight gold. So they are a dual color. I have a gold and black bed set. I love the way it turned out and how easy it was to use.
