Giant 'F' details

I teased you all on Monday with this picture and asked how observant you are. Well...did you notice the blue painter's tape and the fact that it's not in the original spot I tried out?


Since you so kindly played along with my little game, here's the reveal in all its BIGNESS!


There's a tiny hallway off of the rotunda in our entry that leads to the guest bedroom and bathroom. This ended up being the perfect place to house our family pride. It's discreet because it's set back a bit, but the second your turn your head it's like 'BOOM, hello big F!'
This gives you a better idea of the overall space and why I decided to paint it black. 


I have to say, I kinda love it! 

I was dreading painting the lines, which is why this project almost didn't come to life. Honestly, it wasn't that bad! And for those of you wondering what my family thinks since there were originally 2 out of the 4 of us who weren't too excited about the F...I'm happy to report that everyone is happy. John says the placement was key for him and feels it's in the "perfect spot" now. And, Bryn changed from "not so much Mom" to "that's pretty cool!"

Sometimes it takes seeing the finished product before you can totally sell an idea!
