We panted Riglee’s wall orange and were going to put brown spots on it. I decided that I wanted to do vertical stripes instead. So my sweet husband came home at lunch time and helped me make chalk lines.
I measured the wall and then had to figure out how many stripes I wanted. I could either have eight 16 inch stripes or sixteen 8 inch stripes. I decided on the later.
I put tape in the stripes that I wasn’t going to paint.
Then I taped it off. It took me about an hour and I got lots of Cardio in going up and down the step-stool!
After taping it off, I painted over the edged of the paint with the wall color. It seal the tape so that the new color won’t bleed underneath it.
*NOTE* make sure you wipe off the chalk line before doing this!
It took me a little while to paint all the stripes, but we had it done that evening. I painted 2 coats with a paint brush, and then husband painted a final coat with a paint roller.
We bought cardboard 3-d letters at Hobby Lobby to spell out Riglee’s name to hang on the wall.
It took forever to wrap all 6 letters (just over two movies!) Husband was a trooper and helped me get them done.
Then I added embellishments.
I was going to hang them with ribbon, but I thought the “L” might look funny, so we just hung them on the wall with nails.
Parker wanted to be in the pictures, I finally gave in!
We have a few more things to do before Riglee’s room is done, hopefully we will get them done soon so that we will have at least one room in the house totally decorated!!
We have been so busy with life, that we still haven’t done much to decorate our house. It’s slowly, but surely coming together.
Adam took these pictures of the kids and I wanted to hang them in the dining room, but I wanted them vertical instead of horizontal.
So we hung them in the bathroom.
I put this vinyl on the bathtub. I think it’s hilarious and it makes me smile every time I see it.
I whipped this up a few Saturday’s ago for a baby shower I may or may not have forgotten about!
Our Church is having a Super Saturday next month and I was asked to teach a craft or two. I was invited to the meeting to give my input, but had a much needed hair appointment already scheduled and skipped the meeting. I’ll try to never miss a meeting again! They signed me up for 6 crafts! YIKES! I had a week and a half to get my examples together to display them at church! I managed to get them all done and I absolutely love how all of them turned out!
