Making this House...Ours!

I'm FINALLY getting around to some of the make-over projects in our new house, even though we've been here eight months already! I have done a LOT in the yard already, a quite a few rooms in the house, but deep down... I know I'll never really be done! Anyways- I wanted to share a really quick, pretty simple project I did in the foyer area. I LOVE the way it came out & think it adds a little sass to the front of the house!

These were fairly easy to do, I just measured the height of the wall to figure out the number of stripes and the height. I used a level to draw the lines. I painted the white with a flat paint, and the black was done in an eggshell. The different sheens give it a nice depth.

The DIY Show Off


  1. Jennie - Awesome! I love horizontal stripes (I did some in my bathroom). These make a statement! Great job! I love seeing home before and amazing afters. It's my favorite Cinderella story. I'm your newest follower. Nice to "meet" you! Love your fun header! Thanks for linking up to the DIY Project Parade!


  2. WOW, Roeshel... I was SO excited to see that you- "A REAL blogger"- were following my blog! I'm new to this, and I AH-DORE your blog. I saw your bathroom and I love it. The first thing I did when we bought this house was re-do my powder room. I hung black & white damask flocked wallpaper by myself, which I'm very proud of.Now it's my favorite room in the house. I LOVE black and white anything! Thank you so much for visiting my blog!
    Great to meet you as well!
