The Evolution of a Wall

In If you can't renovate then paint on April 2, 2009 at 12:49 am

I’m updating this at a more humane hour. It’s now 9 am and I’m seeing straight.

This is the blah wall. It’s the side of a small entryway closet that just screams for attention(since it’s in a really awkward place and sticks out into the middle of the room!) And, since we can’t just tear it out and re-do the entire entryway, I got to thinking: why not make the best of it and make the whole wall into a picture? Let’s go retro and create a mural! So I bought the paint and the mural stuff and dove right in…

At this point I’m thinking, “Uh oh. What have I done?”

I’m still kind of thinking that at this point, too.

But, two coats of paint later, I’m starting to feel the love.

And once I get my hands on the stickers, or “decals”, I’m really diggin’ it!

If I could just figure out how to use the flash without getting a glare…

And… ta-da! The finished product. This is what it looked like just about 5 minutes ago. The stickers didn’t fall off!! Yay! My somewhat-new-and-improved living space.

Now, I wonder what my husband will think when he arrives home from his trip…
