Ten bazillion hours later, on the final day of this month’s Home Hacks theme at Apartment Therapy, I can now share the reason I’ve rarely left the house the last week. I learned stenciling is a lot of fun but it takes a lot of prep time and patience. It also should be done ideally in a space where there is more than one bathroom to access, since I found myself having to use the toilet while standing in the tub a couple of times requiring a sideway potshot. Fortunately, I’ve got good aim.
