Rose Cross-Stitch Mural
My utility room wall
I used the same pattern as the cross-stitched rose to paint this design on my wall in the utility room. I used sample emulsion paint pots from Homebase, and as they were on offer this didn't cost very much at all. It really looks very effective and if I'd known how well it would come out I would have been braver and painted it in my front room.
I have copied the idea from designer Eline Pellinkhof.
I drew a grid on the wall first to make sure the pattern was uniform.
