    Dear Living Rich on less, I, myself do not see where you have made mistakes on your stencils. Even if you did, that makes them even more '' Chic''. I think you did a really good job and you now have curtains that one one else has!! Don't beat your self up!

    I think it looks good, if people tell you what's wrong with your project means that they are looking to hard...
