Today we are over at Flower Hill Design's link party talking about a painting project. Here is what we did in Bethany's hallway:
Remember this post on zhushing up my hallway?
I started out with this 'inspiration pic' from Atlanta Homes Magazine.
I wanted to do wallpaper, but since we don't plan to stay in our house forever, I thought I'd better save it for the master bedroom. So mom and I got to work making a stencil. We made a pattern similar to the inspiration pic. We used acetate folders from Staples to make our stencil and some leftover paint from my office (you would be suprised how little paint this took up. We maybe used a half of a cup of paint). The project cost us a total of $2.
Since I wanted the walls to look more like handpainted wallpaper versus stencil-y, we painted it with a paintbrush following the stencil as a guide.
The stencil and the laser level kept us on the right track and made the pattern uniform. While our application of paint was very measured so it would looked handpainted.
