If you follow blogs such as Young House Love or Bower Power, you may have heard of the Pinterest Challenge, which is something 4 DIY blogs cooked up based on the site Pinterest.com. Maybe you've never even heard of pinterest? You are missing out, my friend. I suggest you hop on that bandwagon. Anyway, the basic idea is to mimic an idea that you find through pinterest. I did that... with a twist.
This was my inspiration.
Which is in my To Do board.
I modified it to be in the color scheme that I did the canvas that I blogged about earlier (I think last post?). I decided to hand paint the canvas in multiple shades to give it a stained glass look. I used thin painting tape to make the lines nice and straight.
Again, I mixed with the navy and french blue acrylic paints with varying degrees of white. I also ended up painting the white lines due to the colored paints seeping across the line.
With the previous painting on the wall.
The dining room.
My mother in law gave me these plates that go well with my whole blue and white theme on the main floor. :)
I officially like having things on the wall in the dining room. Though I am still not wild about the wall color... But I am not sure what color I would paint it.
