A couple months ago Ben's sweet Grandma asked me if I would be interested in helping her do a little decorating in her sun room. I was so excited! Grandma and I have similar taste, so I knew it was going to be fun. We both love pink, lace & flowers, so when she told me that she wanted me to stencil one of the walls, I knew which stencil would be perfect for her: The Lace Love Birds Damask Stencil from Royal Design Studio! She also had me refinish a small fern table, and paint he other three walls in the sunroom a beautiful shade of pink.
Here's the photos starting with before anything was done, until how it turned out last week! Enjoy :)
A beautifully blank canvas to start with:
Aren't those floors beautiful!?!
First I painted three walls a pale pink, then we decided the accent wall (the one that would be stenciled) should have a nice creamy background so the stencil would really pop! Grandma and I had been talking about this makeover for months, so when the opportunity came for me to get started, I didn't care that it was Thanksgiving or that I was wearing a cocktail dress, I just wanted to get to work beautifying this super cute space! Ben's family thought I was a little silly, but I am proud to say I got no paint on my dress! :)
How cute is this stencil? Grandma loves birds and this stencil is just perfect for her! Once we started moving the furniture around and shower off all her plants, the room starting coming together so fast! You may remember THIS blog where I talked about refinishing Grandma's pretty fern table. It showed up so great in this space!
The only downside to this trip was I didn't think to bring my nice camera! I only got cell phone shots :( But I think it's still clear that this space is adorable and very Grandma-worthy :)
Here you can get a little view of the pale pink on the other walls, it warms up the small space and makes it so feminine and friendly!
We still have big plans for art & décor, a pretty rug & maybe even a storage ottoman! Stay tuned :)
