Pin It -> Do It

Today is the day:

For all the great entries you have to

There will be SO many cool projects
to  check out. I can't wait to go through the links!

This is my inspiration photo:

You can check out all my pins HERE.
I have a few....hundred.

I chose to do a wall in my dining room.
It's been sitting blank for months since the remodel.
Let me refresh your memory:

This was taken pre-construction.
The walls made the space really awkward
and made the house feel crowded.

So we ripped them out.

Ah, wide open spaces!

Enter the Pinterest Challenge.
And  this pic (just a reminder)

My Pattern: Chevron
My Color Scheme: Charcoal, Sienna & White
My Supplies: Paint, Wall Decals, Dishes

First I painted the blue hutch a charcoal grey.
Here's a before pic of the hutch I painted
when it lived in my art studio.

It was light blue and full of yummy art supplies.
But I needed more usable storage and less display
space so it had to go when I rearranged the studio.

While that was drying Billy and I started applying
our new Chevron Wall Decals in Sienna.

Then we slid the hutch back in place and
added the white dishes (a collection from my kitchen -
now I have a nearly empty cabinet - YAY for extra storage)

If you look closely, you can see Mr. Owl
proudly displaying his new, all white coat
in the middle of the top shelf.

Finally, 9 months after the reno, the
dining  room looks like a room &
it feel so cozy in there.

Now to find inspiration for the rest of the house!

Don't forget to check out all the great
blogs hosting the Pinterest Challenge!

Hi- I saw your link on the Pin It Do It challenge and I just had to tell you how much I love the chevron wall decals. The walls in my house are too bumpy for decals (it took me a few times to learn that lesson) but if they weren't, I would love to have these!

I just added your web page site to my blogroll, I pray you would give some thought to returning the favor.

As a final point , allow me thank you for your patience with my English as (I am positive you have become aware this by now,), English is not my number one tongue as a result I am using Google Translate to shape out what to enter what I truly plan to voice.

I love it! It has a moroccan feel to it! Perhaps I should consider wall decals to my home.
