A day at the zoo

A few months ago my brother-in-law asked if he could come pick up the kids and take them to the zoo for the day, of course I said yes and then I panicked- an entire day to myself?? Where to start!? Of course I wanted to run to a million stores and just look at stuff, but since we were really trying not to spend any money- shopping seemed like a waste of time. SO... instead, I decided to do something free and stenciled the hall! I know this pattern is EVERYWHERE, but when I first saw it on Jones Design Company I knew I had to do it somewhere.

 The two things I learned in case I attempt stenciling in the future-- it takes a LONG time, and DON'T use a dark pencil- then it takes 2 coats of paint to cover it, ugh
