(Idiot Proof) Painted Wallpaper
This wall with it's multiple personalities and wonky shape has always driven me crazy. It's an entry. It's a hall. It's way too narrow for any kind of table or shelf. I've got big plans for it....eventually. But until the time and money magically arrive via Fairy Godmother, I had to do something. When I saw a pattern for painted wallpaper on Emily's blog, I figured WHAT THE HECK? I printed it up and transferred it to a piece of cardboard, then traced and filled in with paint, knowing that there was a very real possibility it could look like crap and I would hate it. About five minutes in I was formulating Plan B: paint out the whole thing and pretend it never happened. Four episodes of Phineas and Ferb later I was done. And? I don't hate it one bit. How's that for free?
