Slowly making progress in the house.
When it comes to decorating my house, I'm not very good at leaving things alone when I don't love them. I also have to note - I am terrible at picking out paint colors. Or rather I am just very, very new to it. I feel like I am getting better at it... but that may just be a delusion.
We started with a really bright blue. I swear I didn't realize it would be this bright when I picked it, but like I said, I am new to picking paint colors. So I decided to try a technique called glazing. I tried and failed. I am sure it would have worked better with different colors, but with the dull on bright color and no natural light, but it just looked dirty. I don't know if the photo really shows how dirty it made it look.
So I just painted it the new duller color. I liked the new color, but I had really been hoping to make it an accent wall with more pizzazz.
I don't really have any photos in the process. Just this close up of the pattern, don't mind the color, its hard to get a close up without any natural light. It at least shows what the pattern looks like.
I couldn't be happier with how it turned it out! Which is so much better than it is in these photos...
