So, this is how it ended up turning out. It isn't a great picture, came out kind of dark when I scanned and uploaded. You'll be able to see it better in other ones, I think.
Okay, this one's better. You can see the stencil better with it being closer, and bigger. It doesn't look like much, but it took me a long time to do. It looks really nice, though, because it matches the floor perfectly. I wish you could go there and see it for yourself.
Just another picture of the same basic thing.
This is just another wall in her kitchen. You probably like this one better, huh? Not quite so cluttered. ;-)
....And, the actual stenciling, itself...
So this is what I did in that room. I got to pick the colors and design, and then Jerry's wife went and found curtains to go with the same basic colors as what I used.
Just a corner view. You can see the stenciling better in this one maybe.
And.....another of the same darn thing. You do realize, don't you, that if I'd had my way that dropped ceiling would have rapidly become a thing of the past. But, not my choice. Now Jerry and Debbie are divorced, they sold the house, and the people who bought it probably wouldn't appreciate me coming in there and telling them to get rid of that thing!! ;-) I'm hoping whoever bought it made getting rid of that damn ceiling a top priority. Oh, I can't even think about that now, it'll give me shivers! ;-)
Just a closer look at the stenciling.
Just a little bit closer look at Jerry and Debbie's slate. I guess it kind of grows on ya, I just think I probably wouldn't have done it like that for myself. But then again.....what the heck do *I* know??!!
This is a slate I did for my brother, Joe's, house. I think it was included with various things for Christmas one year.
Nother picture, same slate. My parents have one, but it's painted completely differently. I don't have a pic of their's. They have it on the wall of their front porch, and then took down the house numbers that we there previously.
