Stencil Wall Complete!

28 Sep

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…

to 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?

Update on Stencil Wall

23 Sep

Happy Friday!

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!

My rug addiction continues…

1 Jun

I always thought the scale of the Moorish Rug seemed off. It just made the room seem a million times smaller, and since our living room is already small I definitely didn’t want to give the illusion of being even smaller.

You get me, right? So you’d understand if I bought ANOTHER rug, right? Well luckily my husband knows me very well and has become accustomed to my buying and returning shopping habit.

So with his blessing, I purchased this 8 x 10 trellis rug from Overstock. After I measured the room, I really felt like 8 x 10 would be a perfect fit!

I think it makes a huge difference! Wouldn’t you agree?

It’s ridiculously soft and plushy.

Oh and in case you forgot this is what the room used to look like before.
