I really want to paint something. And I really want to paint something a deep color. It may be a sickness.
Even though I am in the middle of a DIY project that has required over 8 hours of painting so far (with more to come sadly…but I think it will be amazing when it is done…well it had better).
Anyway, ever since I saw this picture in my Nate Berkus Christmas present-
I can not get navy walls out of my head.
We have a gallery wall upstairs, and while it it currently pretty puny, it could be beefed up a little bit…and have a navy blue accent wall behind it. Not the whole foyer, just the back wall.
It just may give the foyer a pop and help to mask the wall color that I did not choose (and will need to hire a professional to do), the ugly light fixture and the need for some new art.
Or it could just make an already not bright space dimmer.
Or it could be amazing.
Painting it will be a leap of faith. Since we did not paint the foyer in the first place, we have no paint to “fix” it if it is horrible. And honestly accent walls scare me a little bit as they can look wrong so easily.
And since I have never done one, I am afraid my first attempt could fall in the “awful” or “weird” category.
Hmmmm…I can tell you that I am loving that blue every time I walk by it. Maybe I should just buy a gallon of paint. Just in case.
After I finish up the other project. Of course.
