Circular Wall

 When I saw this wooden place-mat, I knew I would find a purpose for it. And of course, I did! The color was more green than the teal look it has here.  The kitchen in the largest dollhouse (I need to give them names) is going to be black and white with red accents.
The walls needed something more than the usual. So... I painted one black, then painted the place-mat red and put it over the black wall. 

I had a difficult time deciding what color the crown molding should be. I have decided to make it red to give the wall a complete look.

Surprisingly it was easy to cut to size!

 I took the pictures before I added the crown molding and touch-up so you can see the black wall

I like the way the diamonds between the circles match the ones in the flooring.
It actually makes the ceiling appear higher!
The cabinetry has an oak finish. I wanted to use the marble kit in my stash for the counter tops. I also have something similar to black granite. I  thought of painting the cabinets black, but I love the oak. Hmmmm Maybe I will just buy another set of cabinets.

  1. It makes a great feature wall. I have a similar red one but my sets are larger so it does not fit the entire wall. I like yours better. Your black/white/red color scheme is stunning.

    1. Roville,
      Thanks so much! I have to scoot over to your place and see the wall. I think I might get a totally different cabinetry and paint it black with accents. We shall see! :-)

  9. Very cool placemat. I love it when they are easy to cut. I've bought a few that were a nightmare to work with. This looks great! Good find.
