Rainy weekend stencils

Rainy weekend stencils

The weather was crap this weekend. Really bad. Look at the photo of my balcony  if you don’t believe me. What to do, what to do I asked myself and decided to reuse the wood left from the disassembled cabinet. How? By painting it. Nice glass of wine and hazardous spray fumes made my weekend really colourful despite all the greyness outside  😀

I then decided to do something bigger. I think this used to be a side of the cabinet.
