Amazing Foyer Transformation


Not even the most gorgeous turquoise bookshelf could mask the dated wallpaper, blah-beige paint and dingy carpet that once filled our front entry. With a little bit of imagination and A LOT of paint, we transformed the space that welcomes people to our home into something more "us."

All that white called for a bit of a pop so we painted the stair railing bright turquoise to match the bookcase.

Using satin finish paint for the stencil, there is not only pattern, but a bit of texture against the flat wall paint.
