To say I had trouble choosing a color for our entryway is an understatement, indeed. I actually painted it five different colors before I settled on White Down by Benjamin Moore.
For the most part, I really liked it ~ except for the main wall where the above table is. The lighting is poor, and unless I open the door on a sunny day, it just seemed a little dreary.
Yesterday was rainy and grey, and at 5:30 in the evening, I decided to try to “un-dreary” the entryway wall.
Once I got the bee in my bonnet, I just decided to go with it.
The lighting was terrible for pictures, but I’ll show you anyway~
I didn’t want to repaint the whole entryway area, so I decided to treat this wall as a feature. To tie in two colors, I painted the bottom 2/3 Polar Bear White (by Behr, left over from my craft room), and stencilled the top (over the White Down background).
It was my first time stencilling on walls, and I think it could become addictive…
Here it was before I started:
And here it is this morning.
We can’t believe how much brighter it already is. Now I can’t wait to pretty it up!
