Entrway Revamp - Primer and Base

I wrote a few weeks ago that we were starting some painting and revamping of our home.  I picked out an accent color and decided to try it up on the walls in our eating area.  Hubz finished painting it for me and here it is.

I will post more pictures when we put up curtains and put the table back.    This was the least cluttered picture I have so far.

I also decided to sand and paint our entryway wood floor.  I have completed the sanding and priming of the floor.  I also added one coat of the base color.

We want to stencil the floor and the stencil we picked out is called Lace Floral Trellis from OMGStencils on Etsy.  It looks like this.

We chose Benjamin Moore's Kendall Charcoal for the base and Wickham Gray for the stencil.  Anytime I can recognize Jane Austen, I'll all for it!

We're thinking of adding color inside the flowers but will wait and see how that looks.  I need to get another coat of the Kendall Charcoal down before starting the stencil.  Bean thought the primer stage looked the best.  That's a true Southerner right there!  Prime it.  Leave it.

Stay tuned to see how it turns out and if I really like any of it once it's all done.
