Stencil Wall Approved!

16 Sep

Happy Friday!!

I’m very excited about this post and even more excited to get started on this project.

Last night I slowly asked Ryan if I could stencil the hallway, concerned he would firmly say NO, considering the plaster he did on the walls took some time and labor. To my surprise he said Sure, I was of course screaming with joy inside.

I’ve always wanted to stencil a wall and planned to get started in the nursery once the babe was on his/her way.

Well since that hasn’t happened yet, I thought the hallway would be the perfect space to start up some practice.

Here’s what the hallway looks like now, in case you forgot.

It’s actually really small so I’m hoping this will be a good gradient for me. The only hard part might be the four doorways and wall heater, yeah didn’t think about those.

My first thought on the design was this gorgeous number at Beach Bungalow 8

Love me some imperial trellis. But sadly after much research online, it looked as though I’d be pulling my hair out as opposed to jumping for joy while doing this pattern. BTW the above is actually wallpaper, and it’s $200 a roll! so I only wish.

Here are some other patterns I like

This one came out so good! by Vintage Revivals, love the paint colors she chose as well.

Anyway…looks like I have some decision making to do. I definitely know I want the colors to be white and dark gray, so at least that steps done.

Do you have any favorites?

Have you thought about stenciling a wall in your home?
