I'm far from being done with the room. It still needs curtains, art on the walls (all though very minimal), and his big boy bed (which he is refusing to even consider).
However, when a paint job takes 3 weeks to complete it deserves to have a reveal all it's own!
Remember how I used this method for the stripes?
Well it's AWESOME! It 100 % works! There were very minor touch ups, but I'm convinced that it would have been a ton more had I not used this technique. I also used Edge lock painter's tape
which I think helped as well. But I know that it wasn't only the tape that gave such amazing results because when I went to do the touch ups I re-taped a few areas and did not use the above mentioned method and it was miserable. Leaking under the tape all over the place.
Without further ado let's see those stripes!
|Loving the gray furniture I painted with the stripes!|
|This is what happens when you have the camera on the wrong settings and you really have NO clue how to photograph a window. Cue celestial angels.|
It is surprisingly very, very calm in that room. You wouldn't think so with all the color and pattern, but it just makes you happy to be in there.
It also makes for an extremely cute backdrop for some very wiggly boys!
That book shelf on the floor is going in the blue stripe between the chair rails right at Tennyson's shoulder height.
I think I am going to go with gray curtains....we shall see. Oh do you want to see a quick Before and after side by side? OK twist my arm.
Well....what do you think?
