Why IS that? Painting just feels so satisfying! Well, good thing I have a ton to paint in this house!
Remember when I painted the dining room and living room? You can check that out HERE!
I LOVE the colors I painted and I'm going to continue that gray throughout the entry and up the staircase. I am still so in love with this shade of gray. It is so peaceful and calming and beautiful.
Here's a closer picture of the stencil.
Voile'!! The stencil isn't perfect... It got a little wonky here and there, but you wouldn't be able to tell. Shoot, I can't tell where anymore! The stencil is pretty light, I used the trim paint color for the contrast. I purposely make the picture a bit darker so you could see the detail of the stencil.
I pushed everything back into place and put the mirror back up. I'm trying to play around with the styling. Not one of my areas of strength. I'm thinking I like the lamp, I just need a shade for it. I might paint it a color... I don't know. One day, I want to paint the chest of drawers... Not the whole thing, I love the "abalone" parts to it. Maybe a dark blue with crystal knobs?? Hmmm.
Then one day, I'm going to attack that staircase! I can see it now... white spindles a darker handrail with darker treads... One day... I have a bunch of other projects much higher on the priority list.
I have been blogging for about 4 years and I enjoy sharing all the things that go on here at The Stonybrook House. From building to decorating, crafting and cooking, and so much more. I enjoy gardening and a healthy lifestyle. Most importantly I love The Lord Jesus my Savior and my wonderful hubby of 28 years!
