Today I finished up at the Four Little Girls House. Wait until you see this awesome bathroom for the oldest and girl and one of the other younger ones!
Again, I wish I could take all the creative credit for this design concept, but no can do! I saw this on one of my favorite blog sites, Design Inspiration, Planet Stencil Library. (Look under May 2007). I did not use the templates you can purchase through the Stencil Planet Library because I wanted to try this new compass I just purchased through Micro-Mark. The tool was inexpensive, $26 and allows me to make circles up to 6' in diameter. What I did for this job was make 3 sets of concentric circles, 4 circles to a set. The sets are small, medium and large. Using a low tack, repositionable spray adhesive, I placed the sets of circles on the wall where I thought I wanted them. After a little adjusting, I just traced the outline of each circle on the wall. I used a good angle brush, like a sash brush and just painted freehand. All paints, including the background paint, is from Ben Moore's new line of paints called Aura. This paint line has the very rich, deep tones and covers completely with 2 coat. This deep red pictured was covered almost completely with 1 coat! I only had to roll a light 2nd layer on. The two other walls in this large bath are painted solid. One walls is the purple you see in the circles and the other is the orange from the center circles.
There is a very long hallway on the second floor, that connects to the 2 story foyer wall I had done previously. I did one wall to match the foyer and the long hallway was done in stripes. The stripes alternate, Sage Green Lusterstone and the 3 color glaze from the foyer.
Here's a close up of the main wall that is seen from the foyer.
This shot shows the foyer wall I had done previously (on the right), the new wall on the left, and the stripes at the end of the hall. Oops... and there's my ladder, not quite out of site! The circle bath is at the end of this hall, off to the left. There is one bedroom off to the right of the stripes.
Here's the opposite end of the hall, where there are a lot of stripes! The hall is about 20' long, with 4 bedrooms and a bath at this end of the house.
This angle really gives you a sense of the length of the hall.
I had a great time at this house! I will return again in a few weeks to do 2 of the girls bedrooms, the laundry room and a piece of furniture. They are off for vacation next week and so I am I! Stay tuned...
