Everywhere else in the house has white walls (apart from the office and downstairs bathroom), so it was nice to get a bit of colour flowing!
|Here's the walls before I started painting|
I then bought a stencil of cherry blossom and stencilled in a repeat pattern along the whole of the wall in a slightly lighter blackberry colour in semi gloss. The trick was to use as little paint as possible on the roller.
I then just used masking tape and started in the top lef-hand corner and worked along and down lining the stencil up as I went.
I love it! It gives off a really nice shimmery shine and is really nice and subtle but beuatiful. It also ties in really nicely to the blinds from Ikea which also have a sort of cherry blossom design on them.
We just need new bedcovers and I might even make some cushions with the cherry blossom stencil on too!
