I’m super excited to share my Foyer Reveal! (still minor finishing touches needed) but, for the most part she is ready to show off. I worked so hard on the stencil design so I hope you love it!. Between working and all the other remodel and repairs we have going on in our home, life is just busy. I am thrilled to share the reveal and your opinions is greatly appreciated.
I wanted to hang wallpaper at first, I was going for a glamour/vintage look, with a Mid-Century Modern vibe. I know it’s crazy but, my style is really eclectic, but my love is vintage and MCM designs. So, I decided to save lots of money and tackle it myself by using a large stencil, three cans of Gold spray paint and a month later my foyer design was created. I saved at least $500-$1,000 dollars on my foyer alone. I wanted to create something different, a different feel, and I think that I achieved my goal. It definitely screams vintage, and if you look closely ( because, the wall is not perfect) it reminds me of a 1920’s hotel, with gilded Gold leaf wallpaper or even hand painted designs. Let me tell you, it was lots of work and really tricky to spray a large stencil, when using a spray can, because your constantly trying not to over spray and the most important is moving your can the same way you would spray furniture etc. I must say I’ve learned patience and controlling the can as if my life depended on it, it was almost scary I wanted it to look gorgeous and not just some crappy spray paint job!. There are a few places where I did over spray a little, but after it was done the trick is to use a really thin paint brush and go over the areas using the background color, which in my case, “Pure White” by Sherwin Williams. This is the color I will be using throughout our home for all the trim work!. I even added molding over the front door, the few things left to do as I mentioned before is paint the trim white, the door and give some new life to my credenza. Any color suggestions? I was thinking Blue. P.S Don’t mind the Blue tape “Wet Paint” Be sure to click on the links throughout the blog so you can see how it all began…

I am truly happy that my foyer walls are done, it was a lot of work, but we save tons of money on labor and materials. I know if I would have hired someone it would have cost, no less than $2,000+ just for the foyer! If you got it you pay for it, I rather DIY-it anyways, its rewarding.
Thanks for stopping by
