I adore this tutorial. I think that accent walls are so beautiful. I have been pricing up wallpaper, but it's simply too expensive. I think that painting an accent wall is a perfect solution. I will have to start looking for a good stencil that I can use.

This is such a great idea! I was looking for a way to paint the wall in my living room that isn't just a solid color and this is it.
