Seeing Stripes

We moved into our new rental house about 2 months ago.
I had no idea what to do in my one year olds room.
It was tan and boring and looked like this:

I'm tired of putting money into rentals, so this time
I decided to go with an inexpensive fix.
I bought 1 gallon of white paint, which was on sale
for $5, and a $7 dollar roll of painters tape.

Here is the end result.


It only took one hour and it turned this boring
room into a sweet and fun nursery.
And when we move out, all I have to do is
paint over that one wall!

  5. LOVE the stripes. I wish I wasn't too lazy..I would do that probably in ever.room.of.my.house.

    That would be too much, though huh?

    Anyway, yum! Great job on the room!
