Yup, new floors!!!!!! All stacked up in the living room ready to install next weekend. I cannot wait! We laid out a few planks on the kitchen floor to get a better picture of how it will look and it's going to be gorgeous. I want to fast forward to next Sunday!
So, in preparation for the new floors we've been knocking out some little projects. And cleaning like crazy. Saturday while my husband was watching basketball I got a little project done to update the hall and move toward the turquoise accents I've been wanting to add.
Okay, this is the wall just to the right of our bathroom door. I painted this canvas back when we lived in our apartment. It filled the space okay, the colors just weren't right. I still like the idea of the flower, I just wanted something a little brighter and more fun. So, after some turquoise paint (leftover from painting the built ins) this is what you see when you walk down the hall.
So much brighter already. Just the punch of color that side of the hall needed.
Okay, so I left the same center on the flower. And I always hated how uneven the petals looked before so I made a couple of stencils out of a sale ad and just painted right around them. That way the petals were all the same length and looked a little better.
Next step, paint the bottom of the walls and find the perfect things to hang in my gallery wall. What did you guys do this weekend? Anyone else whip up some quick craft projects? BTW, this one was completely free. I already had everything on hand.
