- It was a smaller area so I could finish quicker and estimate how much time my real project would take me
- If I screwed it up it would still be an improvement to beige nothing on your way to the playroom in the basement, where we hang coats anyway
- Lists make me feel like I've really made my point
The inspiration for my whole project was a fun wallpaper design by Orla Kiely called Multi Stem Wallpaper. I decided to do my own thing with it and the paint I had wanted for the basement and I made the stencil myself from paper I bought at Michaels. I might end up finishing this with a cream coloured stem or grey stem, I haven't decided.
|Before: I used my kids to dress up my boring walls! Hi, ti-dye Gabriel.|
Pics: another section I did around the corner beside the door and view from the top of the stairs. The large rectangular space is where the hat rack/coat hanger goes but that's hubbs job since it weighs 30 pounds and I am too proud of my work to wait for him to get around to it ;)
Total time for a person who doesn't do this stuff at all, and I mean at all: 2 hours
Estimated time it would take me to do the entire wall in Kieran's room as I had wanted, with multi-colours: HOLY CRAP I DONT KNOW SEVEN HOURS??? Reconsidering my approach maybe.
