My lovely stylist, Becky, has a cute place just up the street from my house. I love going there and chit chatting with her for two hours every month. A few months ago, I offered to stencil a wall in her salon.
I thought it would add a little interest to the main wall you see when you walk in the door. She ever so kindly agreed and so we did a little swap. She did a little makeover on my hair and I did a little makeover to her salon.
This is what it looked like before.
A lovely shade of blue gray on the main wall with the rest of the walls painted a light taupe.
I was dying to use it somewhere else.
This wall was much easier to stencil, since I didn't have to maneuver around a toilet,
a sink, a towel ring, a toilet paper holder and a light fixture.
I just had to make sure everything was level and even on each side.
Oh, and for the record, here is an after picture of my hair makeover.
It's nothing fancy, but trust me, it is a huge improvement.
And yes, my sons are wearing stickers that say "The Naked Karate Girls"
and my middle child is holding a devil's pitch fork.
I'll blog about that another day, just focus on the hair, people!
I really love stenciling and if you live in the greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area and are interested in having me stencil a wall or room in your house, e-mail me here for the details.
