Here’s a picture from before we moved in, with the previous owner’s furniture. Note the carpet (which we ripped out), and wall colors (that we painted over). The bookshelves on the left were super cute but not built-in.
And looking down the hall way towards the master bedroom:

I’m really happy with how the stencil turned out! It gives the room a lot more depth and character. I worked with an “all over” one from Cutting Edge Stencils, and found it fairly easy to use.
We also added a fireplace (it was our Christmas gift to each other). Next up for the dining room is likely adding a banquette, and moving the table over against the wall to the right. I’m thinking it will be a large built-in eating area with some storage and bookshelves, but we will see how it plays out.
Have you done any stenciling? How did it go?
