We decided to move Amelia rooms to our old guest room and put Nolan in her old room. I kind of just threw all her stuff in there and called it a day. I told myself that one day I would paint it and make it nice. Well months later I finally did.

I got the idea from YouTube. I remembered buying a bunch of paint samples from Lowes ( sometimes they have them on sale for 99cents). I had paint left over from other projects as well. I headed upstairs. No idea what I was going to do. Absolutely didn’t have any high expectations. I even texted my husband saying ” well if it comes out ugly I can just paint over it”.

So I started taping the wall. Creating triangles and different shapes. I measured some of them. I did make sure all my straight lines were leveled. You can say I basically winged it.

Then came the painting. This is were I wish I would’ve taken my time and seen what color was going to go where instead I took each color and choose a shape to paint. Again winging it. I think it worked out in the end.

 

I got this crazy idea that I wanted the tape lines gold. At first I was hoping I could find gold tape but then I found gold paint at Hobby Lobby. This was the hardest part! Painting the rest of the room with two kids while hubby was at work was easier then painting lines.

I had to tape inside every shape to have this clean lines. I used a craft knife and scissors to make sure the tape wasn’t covering the old tape lines.

Finally took my small artist brush and started painting. It took about 3 – 4 coats of gold to cover the green. The Hobby Lobby I went to only had 1 can left of paint but I wish I could’ve gotten 2 to use a small paint roller instead of the brush. I do have some touch up I need to do from the tape ripping the paint off.

Don’t forget to use a coupon at Hobby Lobby

In the end I absolutely love how it came out. The color combination is so girly and I totally wish it was my office ( currently writing this in her room because I love it that much).

Stay tune for other DIYS I have plan for her room and just in general. My mind is always coming up with crazy ideas ( my poor husband hates me..kidding) to change and add things to my house.
