Entryway Makeover

5 Materials
3 Days

I gave my entryway a makeover with some new drywall, moldings, paint and a stencil.
The hallways had paneling and a chair rail on the lower half that I felt made it look too narrow. I had the handyman remove it and put new drywall up and moldings.
I painted the walls and used a harlequin stencil. It took about 3 days and was tedious but I was very pleased with how it looks now.
I hung a large rectangle mother of pearl mirror and used mother of pearl switchplates.
View as you enter the house.
Switch wall.
View to front door.
View from kitchen.
I used spray paint to stencil the doormat too.

      There is a closet behind the bi-fold doors and I also have an over the door coat rack.

    What kind of paint did you use with your stencil?

    Ok I really love this wall stencil but I’m confused the stencil is only 22” x15” so how many diamonds are really on the stencil and what size? as they appear nice size but if only 22” tall seems like they would be too small for my liking

    I love your choice of colours. Your entryway is now light and airy and very classic.

    I am going to try it.

    Thank you for the post and sorry about the glitch in my response above.

    Love this....it's kinda neat that the stencil pattern even goes with the glass pattern in your front door!
