Once we started taking down fabric & mirrors we discovered a built in shelf.
Why the previous owners covered it up with the mirror I have no clue, except for the fact that there were like 50 mirrors in the Behemoth when we moved in.
I knew that I wanted to tackle a project at the Behemoth this past weekend and I knew that this little shelf would be the place to start. I started by painting the background Woodlawn Bedroom Grey (the same color as the ceiling in our living room).
Then, I found a design I liked and printed it at 180% it's actual size.
I cut the design out & traced the design on the wall with a pencil.
Then I filled in the outlines with gold craft paint from Michael's.
Erased the stray pencil lines, et voila, a fancy pants built in.
And of course I had to grab some goodies from around the house to style it up.
I spy a little bunny from this wonderful lady, a penguin clothbound & a photo from this talented blogger
All in all I am absolutely thrilled with our built in redo. I love that it's a little unexpected and dresses the space up more, and the view from the front door isn't half bad either.
