At first, Miriam, of Flor's design blog Musings, thought she had "crazy pants idea" but in the end she is pretty happy with the results. We think she should be. You can see her step-by-step process of reverse stenciling here, including how she got the stencil in the first place. We also like some of the close up shots that show how beautiful it is where the woodgrain shows through the negative space in the design. And check out her roundup of reverse stenciling projects that she used as inspiration including one we reported on here last spring.
