Pinterest Fail Turned Great

I decided a few weeks ago that since I finished my last class of the semester, I needed a project. So I went on down to the Home Depot and bought myself some paint. The original plan was to finally stencil an entire wall. I have been wanting to do this for ages and finally built up courage and read enough Pinterest stencil blogs to go for it. Well needless to say, it was a complete and utter fail! Apparently if the wall is textured the paint will inevitably bleed under the stencil. Which led me to my backup plan... I had to paint the entire wall. The paint I picked out just happened to be a shade of gray (my gray obsession lives on) but this time I thought I would do a dark charcoal. Well in our bedroom it basically turned out black. So now we have a black wall in our bedroom and I am telling you, I LOVE IT! Of course now I am trying to figure out how to paint my brown furniture. Ha! Always something. I ended up covering some old canvases with some leftover burlap that I had from another pinterest experiment and stenciling those instead. I still think it needs more but, here is the wall for now...What do you think?
