Bonus room paint job

Here is my version of the paint tape stencils from AllThingsThrifty.com.  I am really liking the way it turned out.  My son keeps telling me that I need to paint the vines green, but I am really liking them the stark white ceiling paint color.  That was the plan all along, but when your 6 year old tries to give you advise, you have to try to take it into consideration so that their feelings don't get hurt.  The edges on the vines aren't as crisp as I was hoping that they would be, but if you don't look really close, you'll never know the difference.  I am a bit of a perfectionist and I really, really want to try to straighten up the edges, but my hubby keeps telling me to leave them alone, otherwise I might just make it worse and that I am the only one that it is going to bother anyway.  Probably true, but I am itching.  I'll restrain, for now!  Until something else gets me fired up.  What do you think of the color?  It was supposed to be a much softer orange, almost tan, didn't quite turn out that way, but I really like it.  Can't wait to get the room all loaded with all my goodies to start crafting again.
This is the "hunting" closet in the bonus room.  CX was a little put out that I put a vine on his and dad's closet, but I think he's over it now.  At least I didn't put a flower or butterfly on it!
