The next day, to save time and my right arm, I decided to use a roller to fill in the spaces. About 25 minutes later and I was LOVING the effect!
I know some people might not trust their hand to cut in the lines, so I am passing on a piece of great advice from one of my readers Carrie! She said to use frog tape when painting lines. There is a special chemical in the tape that bonds it to the wall to prevent any paint from seeping under the tape when painting over it. (at least that is the basic gist of it!) THANKS CARRIE!!
Next up was adding a little flavah!! I needed it too look like another room, a simple extension of our bedroom. It needed to feel cozy.....but be a fun place to get ready in the morning! I started by hanging up my bags. Using leftover baseboard, I cut small sections, painted them brown and added a glass knob for sparkle. They make really cute hangers.
Next up, I decided to steal my son's dresser (don't worry he has two and I was contemplating moving one out of his room anyways). I placed my DIY Sunburst Mirror in there and love the way it is all piecing together....oh and did I mention I LOVE the extra storage!
I added in some pics of the fam because I love looking at those sweet faces first thing in the morning!
On the near wall, where the clothes hang, I am thinking of hanging a curtain from the ceiling to "hide" the wardrobe. Not sure yet, but this was a vast improvement to me.
This is what it currently looks like.....
Much neater and organized. Phew...big sigh of relief has commenced! Whadya think??
