I have several pre-blogging projects that I have been want to share with you and just love Sugar & Spice in the Land of Balls & Sticks once-a-month Before Blogging Throwback party!
In lou of having painters in the house, I thought I would share with you a little wall mural that I painted shortly after we moved into the house.
Don’t laugh now! I never said I was an artist but I really wanted to add lil’ something to this room. A Tuscan Vineyard, please. I call this room the breeze way but it’s a really a pass through area between the kitchen and the garage. Okay it’s a mudroom by most standards.
The wall color: the base is a golden yellow (leftover from the kitchen) and because there wasn’t enough to give it a complete coverage I used a brown/taupe paint (leftover from the family room) to make a glaze and washed/swirled it over the yellow base paint. Then added some random fleur de lis stamp design in copper.
To add even more authenticity to the stone arch, I added some sand to the paint. I hope you can see it.
The mantle mounted underneath is something leftover from the construction of the house. I distressed it with a hammer, screw drivers, and chains.
It’s time for a change. Once I finish remodeling upstairs, this will most likely be the first to go.
