The Painted Hall

Well! I have wanted to get it done for quite some time. I finally told myself NOW is the time. So I moved it all out, taped it all up and got going. One long day is all it took. I am really happy with how it turned out.

Before


The color is Laura Ashely Swiss Almond. I was a little tentative because it needed to blend with the living room and with the mural that my friend did several years ago. But this color turned out just right ....

After



The color is soft. Before the white to me looked stark and didn't blend with the mural. I'm pretty happy with this little project.

Gorgeous! I love the mural. Does your friend do it as a job or hobby?

Laura,
She actually does it as a job! She lives in Kansas City....She did have a space on Rate my Space "Shabby-Corner" But when I did this post I couldn't find it. This was one of her first murals. Some of her work is incredible now.....
