It was just too much for me...I bit off more than I could chew....the dark walls were depressing (they would have been great if i had stuck with it) but it was just too much....
alas... I am now left with the dilemma of what to do next?
Here are my options:
#1: Faux Bois

Images #1 and #3 are of wallpaper- very realistic, very cool. Image #2 is of the Martha Stewart Faux Bois effects wall kit- this would be my cost effective solution. I almost wish I hadn't seen the wallpaper because it is SO much nicer-no?
For colors I think I would either do a pale turquoise under coat with creamy white or gold faux bois- or the reverse, although that last image is looking pretty appealing color-wise too....here's a great tutorial on the process
#2: Block Printing
The other very viable- and probably a little less intense option is stamping- similar in style to my heartthrob wallpaper of late by Les Indiennes

There are a ton of grrreat stamps on Etsy...here are 2 of my favs
