Remember a few weeks ago when I tried to do sharpie wallpaper? Yeah, well, we all know how that turned out. But I was determined to turn my fail into fabulous. And I did! Now my entry/mudroom is interesting and attractive all because of this knock off wallpaper paint job.
I found inspiration from this Serena and Lily wallpaper. It’s so easy to find inspiration from Serena and Lily. The products are just amazing. And this wallpaper is no different. It was love at first sight. What I really liked most about the wallpaper is that it didn’t look perfect. It did look almost hand painted.
So I carefully measured out my walls. 4 inches apart for each column. Then put in the diagonal stripes. I wasn’t too careful about these because I wanted it to be a bit imperfect. As long as they didn’t come out all wonky and not matched up, I’d be happy. I did everything in pencil first and went over it in paint.
I have no idea what the paint color on the wall is. It was there when we moved in, but it’s a really pretty silver sage green. I did the striping in the same color as our trim, Creamy by Sherwin Williams.
I still have more work to do in this entry area, but I feel better having the walls done. Now it’s time for the doors. Then maybe I’ll be ready for a reveal!
Have you turned a fail into fantastic lately? I hope so! We all have our moments but it’s never too late to fix it!
