I had already purchased the paint over the weekend, so I was good to go. Fern and I had our first jammies-all-day day, and didn't actually get dressed til 3.30 this afternoon, when we donned our gumboots and went singing in the rain!
Here's a looksy at the old plain-jane wall (with all the nursery crap piled in front of it - hey - Ive got 13 weeks to get my act together!)
The preparation for the stripe wall was a piece of cake really, I mean it only took about 3 HOURS to pencil and tape my (somewhat dubious) straight lines. All those helpful how-to websites failed to mention the possibility of a wall that turns out not to be entirely straight, and the poor leveller had a meltdown! I eventually abandoned it, and went back to my trusty ruler instead. Actually, the taping part wasn't as bad as I thought - it was the penciling that kinda did my head in.
And the final result? See for yourself!
NB: the colour I have used for the stripe is Taubmans Opal Mist, and the rest of the room is Dulux Whisper White....
I am totally chuffed with how my stripy wall came out! I didn't even drop too much paint on the floor! Now, I'm going to add my embroidery-hoops to the wall and work on finishing the rest of the nursery. Next stop - the nursery mobile!
Stay tuned..... x
