Amazing & cheap wall treatment

Okay y'all, I have promised more posts, so here 'tis...

As you know, I have been blogstalking (which is totally legal, I might add) and I stumbled across the most glorious of "glory be" blogs ever in existance...or at least that I know about. It is called Jones Design Company. I am literally obsessed with her sense of style. It is PERFECT!!! So, when the hubby went away overnight, I had to copy her idea of the painted quatrefoil design. It looks like wallpaper, but only cost nothing because I already had the paint!!!

Here is the before:

Yikes! Scary!!!

And here is the after:

Paint treatment looks great, pictures are a little too small, and not at all what I want, and that grodie chair (remember that little find?) against the wall needs some lipstick...but that is for another post :)
I did do it a little bit differently than the inspiration, but it was purely by accident. I used her template that she had on her blog, but instead of painting all of the pencil lines, I just went in between. I should have double checked the tutorial, I still think it looks great though. Thanks for the inspiration Emily!!! If you want to do the same in your space, head on over the Emily's amazing blog and check out how she did it. Oh, and take a gander at her nursery for her new baby girl too. You will have to pick yourself up off the floor...gorgeous!!!!!

Love Emily's blog and wallpaper template too! Found yours from the just beachy comments.
You did a fantastic job! It looks so pretty, how long did it take you? I'm thinking about doing my dining room.
