RE - Entry

When we first moved into this house, the entryway was covered in a very full-on floral design that just wasn't, well, ME. So I slapped on a few coats of paint, added a suede finish and called it a day. It has been there for 7 years. I have since grown bored of it.

So a couple of stencils and some plaster here.

Some more pretty paint and glaze here and there, until I get the desired look. Or a look close enough to desire.

and this is my new look to the entryway. It really opened it up, brightened it. I even painted my once-red door and painted the "Welcome" sign on it.

I'm actually thinking of painting the inside of the door and applying a different sign. Maybe "Ciao" who knows. Next up is the kitchen. I can hardly wait! The pictures never do the job justice, it really did come out so much prettier than it looks. So nice to have good days to pretty up the place. I refuse to state how long the ladder was in the doorway waiting between good days.

Praying you all pain-free days.

Love the stencil work - so beautiful. My favorite is the door! What a beautiful color.

Have you have the RFA done? How did it go? I hope you are better than ever. :)
