Welcome back to week 5 of our participation in the ONE ROOM CHALLENGE. If you want to catch up here’s WEEK 1– WEEK 2– WEEK 3– WEEK 4. This was a super productive week in our basement bathroom remodel. We actually started painting!!!!!!!
GREEK KEY BORDER
We started by painting a greek key border. The idea is to provide a frame around the walls to anchor the chinoiserie mural that we will paint inside. We were lucky to find this Athena stencil that was almost perfect. It came with a double row of greek key, but we only painted one row on the top and bottom.
In preparation for the hand painted chinoiserie mural, I enlisted Brooks’ talents to paint some pumpkins for me for a table setting arrangement for our church’s women’s dinner.
He totally nailed it!
He also had a chance to draw out the mural in chalk. He was using photos of Thomas Ard murals as our inspiration along with some images he pulled off my blue and white porcelain pieces.
I’ve been so excited about how it’s all coming together that I have been posting a ton of videos and images on social media. So make sure you are following us on INSTAGRAM and FACEBOOK for the real-time updates.
Come back next week, I’ll be sharing the actual painting of the mural. I’ll be linking this post over at the One Room Challenge. If you love interior design and DIY projects, click the logo below and you can follow over 200 home decor bloggers who are sharing their 6 week room makeovers.
