Since most of my friends live close by, I rarely get to host guests overnight. But when my friends from Tennessee or the coast come, I get giddy preparing for their arrival! Last night I worked on a 30 minute stencil project with a sheer pearl/champagne faux finish damask accent on the back wall. It is so subtle, yet so pretty! Little thoughtful touches like this really make a room custom and designer-worthy. The bed and chandelier are both from Craigslist ($50 each), and my next project is refinishing the cherry posts to a rustic whitewash to match the woodwork on the chair.
The stencil was purchased at Michaels craft store for about $15! I have used it in multiple craft projects since I bought it about a year ago, so I have definitely gotten my money's worth!
The sconces were purchased at Ross several years ago and I glazed them with a copper distressing to make them match the Thomasville chandelier.
The stencil catches your eye as you walk by and draws you into the room.
