Writing on the Wall...the good kind

Rarely do my hubby and I get to sneak away just the two of us to a luxurious hotel for the night, so I wanted to give our bedroom and bathroom that feeling of a peaceful retreat. One night, way after bedtime, I decided to add a little hotel character using my black paint pen.
Sorry for the blurry picture....need to work on my skills. Anyway, I printed out the words "his" and "hers" in a script font that I liked and the size I wanted. Then I used transfer paper from Hobby Lobby to trace the words onto the wall using my pencil. When you pick up the paper, the outline is there on the wall. I just used a black paint pen to fill in the words.

It takes a little time, but I love using transfer paper. I am not good at freehand and I am too impatient to make stencils. If you don't have any, head over to Hobby Lobby with your coupon and pick some up. You can reuse it over and over too, so it lasts forever!
