I’m a major blog reader. I have about 4+ design related blogs that I’ll peek in on each day. One of my long time fav’s is Design*Sponge. After seeing this post on their DIY Wednesdays a while back- I made a mental note to try that pattern out somewhere in the house!
So with my resolve to tackle the “steamie house” to-do list, Friday night- after dinner out with friends- we came home, and I set to work taping up the wall in our bathroom. It’s a small space- and was stark white. It definitely needed some pizazz! It took a little extra tape (because mid way through- I realized I wanted it sectioned off differently) lucky for me the hubs had an extra roll of painter tape in his car!
Phase one: TAPE complete…
Saturday morning- we did a quick jog over to meet out friends at the finish line of their half marathon! After lunching with them (gotta refuel after that kind of a race!) I ventured to home depot to pick out my shades of gray! And then I commenced with the painting. My loving hubby was watching football, but periodically came to check on me & my progress. Bringing diet coke, and snapping a few progress pics!
Phase two: start painting the first color… (Yes, I’m wearing my official painting jeans (I’ve had since college) and my Wasatch Brew Pub mock turtleneck!)
Phase three: finish painting the 2nd color….
Phase four: sit around for an hour letting the paint dry a bit then peel off the paint!!! Photograph & upload!
