I’m dooooooooooooooooone. Can I get a woot?! I have to say, even though this project took much MUCH longer than I thought, and was much harder than I thought it would be, it was absolutely and totally worth it. I think that breaking it up into multiple days was really the key to not hating it (too much) while doing it. And it has made a huge impact. I’m in love. So let’s get to it. The before:
Drumroll please………… Ta da!
I love it!! Okay so, I did it in about the most tedious way possible, but in the end it was totally worth the time. I still think I’d opt for the stencil next time around, but I don’t regret the time I spent on this at all. Let’s look at some more wall porn, shall we? Nekkid wall….
I would love to craigslist the couch and get one really oversized chair with ottoman to go in this area, but since I’m doing the area on a (serious) budget I want to get the chair from craigslist as well. So far I haven’t seen anything I love, so I just continue to stalk it regularly. Also, I need to get something larger for this wall. I just wanted to get SOMETHING up there, and this was the biggest thing I had laying around. I’m not sure what would look quite right here, suggestions?
One more… because this kind of repeated pattern makes my brain happy…
Imperfect, but perfect. And a tremendous upgrade, particularly considering I only spent $1.91 to get it done! A very satisfying project, although I must say I’ll probably lay off the paint for a while after my office stripes and then this. I’m getting my sewing machine fixed this weekend, so I may start my quilt soon!
