Week 2 has arrived and I'm am so happy to have this week behind me. It was an exhausting week of paint, paint, and more paint! We primed & painted the walls, the ceiling, the trim, and the doors.
When that was done we painted the ceiling again! This time, with a stencil. My friends over at Royal Design Studio sent me this stencil to try out for her room.
About two rows in, I asked myself, who's bright idea was this? Oh yeah, it was mine (insert eye roll). No really, it was a only hard because you practically had to bend in half to paint it on the ceiling, but the actual stenciling itself? Piece of cake!
Royal Design Studio sent a super helpful tutorial along with the stencil, and I would recommend following it down to a "T." I will do a full tutorial in another post for those of you that want to know more.
From start to finish, the ceiling took us two and a half days, and by "us" I mean my son and I. Somehow I coerced him into helping me. He's such a good sport!
I LOVE the way it turned out!
Shipments have been arriving, and I have some super fun surprises up my sleeve. One of my favorites is a custom art piece an artist friend of mine is painting for her room.
Week 1: Prime and paint trim, windows, closet. Paint the ceiling white. Order remaining items Week 2: Paint the walls and begin the wainscoting. Add pattern to ceiling
Here's the updated schedule:
Week 3: DIY projects and start bed assembly
Week4: Drapery arrives. Finish up painting, and all DIY projects
Week 5: Install week, take pictures and finishing touches
Week 6: FINAL REVEAL!
