One of my favorite house tour DIY inspirations hails from Anne-Marie and Vytas's inviting DC apartment
. Their front door opens into a rather narrow entryway, leaving little room for any landing strip furnishings. However, armed with a can of paint and a few accessories, Anne-Marie transformed the tiny pass-through into a memorable focal point. To create her "poor man's wallpaper" as she calls it
, Anne-Marie chose Farrow and Ball's Yellow Ground
for the background wall color, and used the "knot" stencil from Sunny's Goodtime Paint
. She used leftover white paint over the stencil to create the pattern.
What an amazing transformation a little paint and a lot of patience can make!
