Yep! We did it!
We conquerd the kitchen with an amazing stencil by Royal Design Studios called Casablanca Trellis.
The whole process took us about 4 hours, thank god I had the husband there to help me, because I don’t think I could have done this alone. I envy all those who can!
Here’s how our little Saturday of painting went down
Many hours later we went from this…
And remember the sunburst mirror I DIY’ed, well I found the perfect place for it.
Don’t you think it compliments the wall perfectly?!
We chose a white satin paint, it’s actually the same color we painted all our interior trim. I love the sheen against the eggshell wall.
Hope you like it! I’m pretty much obsessed.
I’d love to see any walls you’ve stenciled. Were you pulling out your hair or were you loving every minute like us?
Well unfortunately after much discussion the stenciling of the hallway is not going to happen and I did try!
But with the gorgeous plaster my husband slaved over and not to mention the uneven walls and 4 doorways it sadly was not in it’s future.
The good news is the kitchen nook has been chosen instead!
This space as always seemed plain to me, so I’m really looking forward to vamping it up.
Oh and here’s a picture of the stencil I chose
It’s called Casablanca Trellis by Royal Design Studios
Wish me (us) luck!
I’ve update our House Tour page!
Enjoy your weekend! We are off for a little “camping trip” at my friends ranch.
Hi All! Hope your Monday is going well.
We all know the zinc letters at Anthropologie, right?
Well they’re totally cute but at $18 a pop, that just won’t do.
I decided to DIY them by using paper mache letters I got at Joann Fabrics.
I sprayed it pretty heavy so I could get that blotchy uneven look.
And here they are hung up in the kitchen! I used doubled sided tape to attach them to the wall.
Ok next up! I had Ryan do these, because we wanted to mix two colors together and he’s the best man for that job.
We used these two colors, first he sprayed the top coat in the lighter gold and then lightly sprayed some of the darker gold over it.
Here they are on top of our mantel, I’m obsessed.
I love how using two colors made them look a bit more aged and not so perfect.
This project was so easy and fun, I seriously want to keep going but can’t think of anything else cute to write.
I’m definitely going to do this in the babies room. When the time comes..
Now that we are door painting pros! (well actually my husband really is.)
I want to tackle our french door in the kitchen, the one we use to access the backyard.
Right now it looks like shit, I’m sorry it just does.
You can’t really tell from the photos but Sarge has once again decided to destroy a door and this one was his main target.
I was thinking a glossy black would look stunning, especially from the view outside.
White could be pretty too, but it seems like all you see these days are white french doors. I really like the boldness that comes with black, very chic.
I’m pretty sure it’ll look fabulous. What do you think? Have you painted any of your doors black?
That’s what my kitchen is saying to me. No really, it is. During our kitchen remodel we totally had plans to add a tile backsplash but after the funds were being drained on other areas in the house we decided to just do the boring 4″ granite backsplash.
Well! I’ve lived with it long enough!
I’ve got the itch!
These are what I’m loving right now. Who knows! They can easily change in a week. Stick with me peeps.

Ya, that’s what he says, right? I don’t know, I don’t follow Charlie Sheen much. I think that’s a good thing.
Anyway.. I’m bidding on this area rug on eBay and I’m going NUTS! It doesn’t end for another 3 days and I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself! I must win this rug! I must. I’ve been having dreams about and also some nightmares, nightsmares of not winning it when it gets down to the SECONDS! I’ve had this happen to me before with eBay so you can understand why I’m freaking out a bit. Basically I’m going to try and be that asshole who out bids everyone at the last second, ya sorry that’s me!
I think I have an addiction to area rugs, I want to buy them all, and then return them all! Ha! I hope I’m not alone with this one.
On another note, I love this living room and I’m slightly jealous of this chick and her style.
Can I have her kitchen chandelier too? Please…pretty please
