When we moved into our house, all four walls of the bedroom were a generic beige colour. I wanted to make the room look cozier, so we painted all four walls grey.
I do like the grey but it was too boring.
I decided to paint one accent wall behind the bed purple to tie in the purple curtains and decorative pillows on the bed but I was still disappointed with it. It was still so boring.
I then tried making my own stencil to paint a moroccan print on the wall. This worked, but it was taking FOREVER and I did NOT have the patience for it so I painted over what I had done with purple again.
I finally gave in and bought a stencil online. (It was a little pricey, but in the end it was worth it!)
Here is the before shot. 3 grey walls and one purple accent wall. BORING!
Here’s another view with the purple curtains.
Now here is after using the stencil that I bought online and a new mirror.
I think that the change is dramatic and I love, love, LOVE the way it turned out!
It took about 6 hours total (one evening and one weekend morning). I used silver paint for the moroccan pattern.
I’ve been loving this moroccan pattern lately, as you can see by my post on
