Pinstriped Entryway

This week got away from me! It was a whirlwind, busy one. I accomplished a lot, though, and have a lot left to get done today. Whew!

Anyway, I did a pinstriped wall for the sweetest client (who reads my blog - hi Jana!) and we both were very happy with the result. Such a simple look, but very impactful. The condo is being redecorated for a bachelor, and while it is masculine, the decor is also elegant. 

These were a couple of the inspiration pics:

This is a photo of the in-process look. I was initially planning to tape off the lines, and use gold paint for them, but then decided to use a gold paint pen. It worked great, and didn't take too long. 

And the end result:

elegant, right?

I loved the end result! And now, I want to draw all over walls with gold paint pens...

happy Friday, y'all. Have a great weekend.

  9. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next.
