As I frequently do, I was wandering the aisles at my local hobby store when I came upon a chandelier stencil (perfect for a Glamper!), and immediately knew I had to have it, but wasn’t sure how I could use it.
My initial plan was to use the stencil on the camper’s closet door until I remembered the screen door.
The chandelier was the perfect scale for the screen door, and since this is the entry door to the camper, I purchased a “welcome” stencil, too.
