Orange Focal Wall

While on my little trip to Vegas...I stayed with my younger sister.  I've been helping her paint and tackle some DIY for her new place.  And one of which, was a focal wall in her dining area.  One thing I love is when I can find someone who isn't afraid of using color, not only on their furniture, but walls as well.  She chose orange, whice is definitely a step 'outside the box'.  (YES!)

But when I mentioned doing a stencil on one of her walls, it took a bit of coaxing.  But, she finally gave in.   She chose to use the large link design from Royal Design Studio.  And did I happen to mention they are awesome on shipping, it usually takes no more than a day or so to receive your order.  Which is great if you want to make this a weekend project.

So after a few hours of painting and

probably a little more talking than we should have,

we ended up with this...

It really makes a statement in her home, seeing that it is the first thing you see walking in.  

On a side note...I'm excited with all of my projects I've been completing.  Since taking on the new venture of refinishing furniture and selling, it's been slow.  But, what with trying to be a single mother and trying to fit in time for my children all while starting a small business, I'm learning to juggle it all pretty well.  It's been tricky trying to find the time for it all...but somehow it's working itself out.  I'm hoping I can keep up and not get too overwhelmed.  

One day at a time, right?
