I am having an intense urge these days to spruce up the house. Like, it’s over-whelming. After 5 years in a house I NEED SOME CHANGE. I’m not used to this stagnant lifestyle.
Anyway, so a major project I want to do is take the stairs and make them a bit more exciting.
(crappy night time iPhone pics coming at you due to laziness--there is no pattern/weird sponge painting on that wall, FYI, that is just the reflection from the light)
I want to paint that little section of the wall there that curves. Stencil it too. And possibly continue it down to that little alcove below. I neeeeed some pizzazz lest I die of boredom. I will also eventually be ripping off the lame carpet, painting the stairs, painting the railing. But that's all in good time. For now let's just focus on the wall.
Here is where you come in. I need some advice. Which direction do I go here?
A bit of a traditional damask but in a fresh color such as this (but on the wall, not the ceiling, doyee)?
Or a bit funkier pattern?
Just as a reminder, here is the room right to the right of the stairs. It's a little more formal but hopefully not stuffy. I have plans for in there as well, but it will continue in the direction of formalish-not-stuffy-ish. I would totally paint that wall too but the 2-story ceiling in there is a pain in my buttocks. But enough about that.
Even if you've never commented here I really need your input. I'm paralyzed with indecision.
In the meantime, next week I'm going to do this to my lame builders grade half bath mirror. Eeeeek! I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself. Looks easy enough. ::famous last words::
But seriously, here is the TUTORIAL I found. Who can't cut molding in a miter box and use liquid nails? ::more famous last words::
I'll keep you posted.
I also have some birthday posts to do and blah, blah, blah... I know you can't wait.
