I had planned to tidy the kids bedrooms today while they were both at preschool. I started in my daughter’s room, and never came back out again!
I thought I might take some pics off the walls, then I thought I should move out some toys. Then the rug had to go. And after a quick vacuum I had a blank canvas and my creative mind went into overdrive.
First I decided to paint the walls using the same colour as our bedroom is currently being painted, Hog Bristle Half. I only did the top half because I knew I wanted to put up some board and batten detailing. Of course, why not. 😉 Now that I’m an expert. Hehe.
I grabbed a sheet of MDF and measured up my battons, cut them to size, and attached them to the walls with Liquid Nails and my nail gun. Then I added the top railing. I haven’t quite finished yet cause I ran out of wood. Arghh.
The cute mirror I had stored in the garage looks great on the wall. I might paint it white. The lamp shade I’m thinking of covering in drop cloth or canvas. And I’ll sew up new covers for the square cushions on her bed in something more neutral too.
I started to do a white undercoat over the board and batten detailing …. And already it’s looking so beautiful. 🙂
I hope to finish the rest of the walls tomorrow. 🙂
Now I can add wall detailing to my list of accomplishments.
Yep, just another day in my DIY loving life. 🙂
