My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.
Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.
On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.
Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]
Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]
For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
Sounds fun! We have been doing some painting, too.
it REALLY didn’t bleed through? how about those frustrating little ragged edges? and what about when you pulled it back up…did it come up smoothly??
my husband and i repainted every room in our house when we moved in…that blue painters tape that SAYS it is wonderful is a huge bag of lies!!
evil evil blue painters tape.
It really did work. The tape was amazing. We really didn’t have high hopes for it. We bought all sorts of special tape to prevent bleeding and it never works so we just end up doing it free hand. We decided to test out this new tape that was actually in my christmas stocking and it worked WONDERFULLY. No bleeding or ragged edges.
I highly recommend it.
Can you post pics?!! can’t wait to see!!
I can’t wait for the reveal. It’s so funny, the other day I was looking around my bedroom and thinking of a green coat of paint too.
I am about to paint my office the same shade of green and will go out and get the Frog tape ASAP! Thanks for the tip!!!
My husband is super picky about the crisp edges and painting a room in a proper way with doing the edges first then filling in the rest. I never really did that before. opps.
Anyway the frog tape got his approval so I hope it wonders for you all.
So excited to see your new office! If you want the same shade of Kate Spade green I found it at Behr and it’s called SHAMROCK. Not loving the name, but it is a perfect match. I searched high and low on my Benjamin Moore fan deck and nothing matched as well as Shamrock from Behr.
I’m going to try and post pictures tonight. I finally took my camera out the box and charged the battery last night so tonight I will be playing around with it and I’ll take some pictures!
ohhhhhh, i can’t wait to see it!! happy 2009
Um, please post pics like NOW!! I LOVE that color and used it on my headboard- I cant wait to see how your room turned out!
Can’t wait to see the room!!!!
So glad to know about that paint tape. The blue stuff sucks, so this makes me incredible happy. Can’t wait to see your room!
Um. Just did a project with the Frog tape and it DID bleed. But, it didn’t tear. Maybe it was me.
Sorry to hear that it didn’t work for you Pat.
I didn’t have high hopes for it, but I decided to give it a try anyway. It worked perfectly in my room and I had a lot of trim work in which I didn’t want it to bleed. No problems on my end.
What paint color did you end up using? I’ve been looking around for kate spade green (used it as an accent color at my wedding) but have had a hard time seeing it translate as a match to an entire wall. Did you do one or two coats? I know someone below used Behr paint in Shamrock. Is that what you used? Thanks for the help!
