Today I am~
I am back after my unexpected break. I have so many blogs to read and catch up on! This weekend I decided to mix things up a bit in my entryway. It just played a little too boring for me.
BEFORE & AFTER
A little cutie just woke up from his nap…so picture taking was a bit of a challenge…
So, obviously, the inspiration for this is stripes. I love stripes. They are timeless, they can be elegant, and add interest.
I decided to do this on a whim this Saturday. Have you ever tried to paint straight lines on textured walls before? Well, let me tell you, it is tedious to say the least. But, I did it! (Just to give you an idea of scale, these are 10-inch stripes.)
After painting them, I realized I have at least four sweaters in my closet that look like this! Maybe that was the inspiration– I just didn’t realize it until afterwards.
I think it turned out pretty great, what do you think?
I also did a few changes with the decor for Thanksgiving.
I moved a couple of things around too…
I am happy with it. It adds a little interest and separates the spaces between the living room and entryway. I feel like it really anchors the space.
Have a great Tuesday!
