In the spring, I attempted to stencil a wall. "Attempted" is the key word. It was so hard and turned out so poorly, that this is the only photo I could find. How people can stencil a wall amazes me!
I think C was the only one happy with the results! Needless to say, this was almost immediately painted over.
Being a bit of a
cheapskate bargain shopper, I didn't want to buy new paint, so I just used the same color that I had on hand from the stencil fiasco.
The buffet/console is a midcentury piece that I painted. The blue is called "Plumage" by Martha Stewart and I absolutely love it.
The mirror used to be a dark brownish black, but I spray painted it gold for a little glamour.
I recently purchased the sunburst mirrors at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. That little piece in the corner is something I painted that needs to be sold. It's just hiding out in that little unloved corner for now.
We all love Mr. Foo, our little turquoise Fu dog. The candle is from the Missoni collection for Target. I love the colors.
The colors and the message in this print are awesome. It's from a seller on Etsy called The Wheatfield.
I need some sort of table runner to add a little color in here. For now, I just folded and put down a scrap of fabric.
A few weeks ago, these doors went from boring old white to dramatic glossy black. I don't like the trim painted black, so I am planning on repainting it white.
The room is fine as is, but I love color and pattern and this room seems to be a bit lacking. Here are a couple of things I'd like to add to the room:
- Two of these prints, one on either side of the gold mirror
- I'm thinking about putting faux Roman shades on the French doors to add a little more interest and color. Here are three very different fabrics that I like. Maybe I'll make a table runner out of one? I'm open to your suggestions. What do YOU think?
