Noah's Bedroom - Part I

Before Noah's room was, well, Noah's room, it was mine and Mike's room. And before that, it was Madison and Jessee's room. So it's had it's fair share of inhabitants. It was blue when we first moved into the house and when we made it our bedroom we painted it a "Honey" shade to match our dark wood furniture. Since we changed rooms, Noah was kind of "thrown" in there and I've never really done anything with the room to personalize it or give it a little boy look. I've got a to-do list for his room and over the weekend I finally accomplished one!

This wall was just plain, and ugly. I didn't have anything big enough to hang on it, and I didn't want to put up shelves for fear they'd end up falling on top of him. Seriously, somehow, this would happen.

I did some searching on Pinterest and came across an idea to paint stripes! I had leftover paint from our entryway project so I thought why not? I prefer most of my DIY projects to be cheap, so this was a win for me!
Unfortunately this wasn't a project I could do while Noah was napping so he had a ball ripping paint tape off the wall and sticking his fingers in fresh paint. It took me a little longer than I expected but in the end I'm more than pleased with it!

I measured out where I wanted the stripes and drew lines with a light pencil. I used paint tape to make the lines and a long meter stick to make sure they were straight. (most of them weren't and some still aren't but I stopped caring)

...ta da!

I love it!

Stay tuned for more updates!
