How the Feature Wall turned out

I decided to go for it after all the postive comments after my Feature Wall post and I had to cover the wine!  So yesterday I popped to the local DIY store and picked up some Crown Paint in ‘Stepping Stone’ (it’s a Duck Egg Blue) and this afternoon I got to work on the alcoves.

Sorry I took the photos in the dark so they aren’t brilliant but you get the idea.  So now I need to change my tiles to reflect the new colour and get some new cushions in the same colour and I think it’ll look ok.  I’m really pleased with it, and it certainly looks better than wine on the wall 😉

  1. Looks great with the clock too 🙂

    Like the writing on the photos – courtesy of picnik I guess – thanks for that tip that I picked up by eavesdropping 🙂

  2. So pleased you like it, the clock was the inspiration. I just need to find a home for it, I think the dining room. Picnik is amazing, I’m so pleased you’ve discovered it too 🙂

  3. I think the colour is great and you could always paint the chimney breast too, if you are a little board of it. Blue and browns go great together, so it will look great with a leather suit.

  4. Thanks for all the lovely comments. xx

    I’m really pleased with it. Hubby not so sure but I’m sure he’ll come round 🙂

  5. GORGEOUS. I echo the sentiments that it will look even more lovely at Christmas, with red accents.

    And if the hubby is still hesitant about wholehearted approval, may I suggest you remind him that at least it’s not the chocolate wall? 😉

  6. Thank you so much, you’re all right it will look amazing with the Christmas decorations – which weirdly I’d not really thought about! I’ll take more pictures when the decorations go up 🙂

  7. That is absolutely gorgeous. Oh my Lord I am so envious. Remind me to never let you see my house. ;D And ta for the offer of advice on my printer. HP are setting things right though so all is well. It seems we really do have the power. Mad!
