Margaret Tarkington Gives her home a Bavarian Look with Our Stencil
Margaret Tarkington knew exactly what she wanted to do on the exterior of her home and it had to be cheery and colorful! And what she did feels like it right out of a Bavarian village!
Using our Raised Plaster Art Deco Flower Border Stencil with just paint, she first painted the exterior trim with dark green paint then added the stencil design in lighter green for the body of the border and then brilliant red and yellow for the flowers.
All the windows and doorways were done in the same manner.
What I loved about this set of windows is that she decided to paint the frames between the panes of glass with the same lighter green she used in the border design. Set against that dark green background really made this set of windows come to life.
Keeping the stencil design above the doorway only allowed her the creative use of paint she’s done to create this welcoming entry. Picking up the lighter green again, and buttery yellow of the flower centers, she brightened up the doors to create a real focal point.
I honestly just wanted to get on bended knee and applaud her for this wonderful make over of the exterior of her home. It’s unusual, creative and so cheerful! Thank you for letting me share Margaret! You did a spectacular job!
