Stenciled Stairs

Ever since we moved into our home here in VA I have spent a lot of time watching HGTV. One show I like a lot is HOME BY NOVOGRATZ, in there show they do a lot of innovative decorating and one thing they did on a show was stenciled stairs. I knew I wanted to stencil our stairs because they are boring and plain, I just didn't know what I wanted to stencil. I took a few weeks to ponder and then decided on the verse "We can make our plans but God directs our steps." Proverbs 16:9. This is a verse that is a great reminder for our family and especially me (the planner) but also I thought it would be a fun verse for the "steps"! LOL Todd went for it and WAH LAH! If I had to do it over I would have done vinyl instead of stenciling, but I still really love it! Here are my project pics...

Such a great verse choice for the stairs. I love it! We don't have any stairs, but now I'm kind of wishing we did.
