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!
