P is for Purple Powder Room

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!)
