Today I wanted to share a project I completed before Christmas. I entered a giveaway over at DIY by Design for Cutting Edge Stencils and I won! I had looked at the Cutting Edge site when I entered the giveaway and knew which stencil I wanted to order with my $50 prize - the Anna Damask Stencil. I used it to create a focal wall in my dining room.
For the background I used Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray and for the stenciled area, I used Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter. I painted the remaining walls in the dining room/kitchen in Revere Pewter.
My dining room/kitchen is a work in progress right now. I sold my colonial tin chandelier and lantern light fixtures on Craigslist and replaced them with new Pottery Barn lighting, which I will share with you soon. I have curtains to make, countertop to replace, would love a new stove, brassy gold door hardware to replace, and my least favorite thing to do - painting my oak kitchen cabinets. Before Christmas I picked up a dining room table and chair set at a yard sale for $45. It was in really bad shape, but I loved the table and it had a lot of leaves. Here's a sneak peak of the table so far.
I'm hoping to finish it this weekend - so stay tuned for the big reveal!
