Last month (how has it been that long?!) I posted a picture of our entry way. At that time I had only gotten one wall done, & was just about to leave on vacation. Almost a month later, I FINALLY finished it!
I didn't really have a plan or pattern. I just bought a quart of yellow
paint, roughly measured out a couple of lines (so I could keep the pattern semi level), & started slapping
the paint on the wall with a 1.5" angled brush. I started with the zig zag on the bottom & worked up from there creating a diamond pattern.
Once I got the pattern painted, I put a fresh coat of paint on all of the trim. It needed it - badly. It's been on my list literally for YEARS...so it felt good to get it done! The previous owners had painted it "white", but as you can see in the picture below, it had pink undertones which I'm not a fan of, at all. The bottom is freshly painting with BM's "Simply White". It's a night & day difference.
I still need to paint the inside of the front door (yellow? turquoise? slate blue?).
I'm really loving the semi crazy, unexpected, bright pattern in that little entry way. It's such a cheery way for guests to enter the house!
