FINALLY! A Reveal!

I've been busy busy lately, but finally feel like something is finished. While the Hubs was out of town on a business trip, I got the itch to paint stripes. . . So I did. This little cove was the perfect place for it. Not too much wall, but you see it right when you walk into the house so it has a big impact. I couldn't be happier!

A laser level is a MUST when you're trying to put the tape on the wall. Without it, your tape WILL NOT be straight! I found this handy one that just tacks onto the wall.
TIP: (I hope this makes sense) For the stripe you will be painting, measure on the INSIDE of the tape to get the correct height of the stripe. For the stripe you WILL NOT be painting: measure from the INSIDE of the tape on the painted stripe, and place the level. Then put the tape BELOW the laser line. The non painted stripes should look way smaller than the ones you'll paint. It also helps to mark the ones you'll be painting before you start so you don't accidentally start painting the wrong one. 

Then Paint Away!

I learned really quickly that paint dries A LOT faster in AZ than any other state that I've lived in. It's so dry here that it sucks the moisture out. No big deal? It is a big deal. You have to peel the tape off almost immediately after you apply the final coat of paint or the tape will peel off your paint. 

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my wall. Now I just need a lil somthin to house the printer and tower to free up some desk top space. 

Happy Wednesday!
