Have you ever finished a room and loved it all but just thought it needed something else? Several years ago, I redid my Living Room and Hall. I painted it a light tan color (can't even remember the color in my own house) and used white for all of the woodwork. I took the color down my hall because there was not a stopping point. I felt it just needed something else.
So, I ragged my hall (that's putting on a lighter color with a glaze and then rolling up a soft rag and rolling it up the wall which takes some of the paint off) and still wanted more.
I love dragonflies and had this old stencil. I decided to do 2-3 of the dragonflies on the hall. I just scattered them in no particular order and not in a pattern. Some up, some down, some just floating around. (I rhyme!!)
I did them in soft colors so they really didn't pop out at you when you walked down the hall. Then I decided to add a brass upholstery tack to the head. It's amazing what one little tack can add.
I love the dragonflies and they will definitely be there for a long while.
Till next time, Judy
