You definitely don't waste anytime. :)
get yourself a really good paintbrush and you can avoid taping so much. a good brush makes it easier to cut in without needing to tape everything. check out our blog: http://pittsburghlandon.blogspot.com/
Thanks for the tip. The taping was a bit overwhelming this morning.
You could probably save yourself some taping on the outlet covers to just by removing them. But looks good so far. And kudos to you for stencling the pantry. We did a few walls in our current house and that takes some patience.
