So, let me start this post by saying that stenciling is a pain in the butt. I think it looks gorgeous and I love it, but it will be a long, long time before I stencil another wall. I stenciled the powder room in the last house, but that was before kids and I don't remember it being this time consuming. I guess I had 17 hours to waste before kids (Yes, I logged 17 hours on the stenciling alone). I should quit whining, because the room is just how I envisioned it and that's all that matters.
When I decided to paint the powder room, I knew I wanted a bold color. I think you can get away with being bold in a powder room. I was leaning towards a gray-almost black until I saw this deep plum color. I used Sherwin Williams paint, and this color is Expressive Plum. The stencil color is called Jogging Path, with silver acrylic paint layered on top.
(Right before I started prepping to paint, I remembered to take a 'before' shot. It's not great, and I somehow managed to get a child and myself in the shot! Oh well, it just makes the 'after' shot look that much better!)
