Artsy Fartsy

SO...When I first moved into our new house I was a pretty excited to have a place that I could paint! I had been living in the white washed rental land for so long that I could hardly wait to get color on my walls! excitement sent me a bit over the top I think and I went BOLD. I painted my Master Bedroom this DEEP DARK Chocolate Brown. ...Not even just an accent wall. I painted the WHOLE thing brown. ...I I ask myself what I was thinking. I mean I love the color's a little too much of a good thing, and it's REALLY dark. Well...I asked my husband one night "On a scale from 1-10 how annoyed would you be if I re-painted our room?" In a very calm, but clear "end of disscussion" tone, he immediately replied "10."

Well...I had to do SOMETHING about my faux pas! I HAD to break up the dark, bat cave look, so...I've been doing some blog stalking lately and I came across this SUPER great idea. Can you say "PERFECT"? All props go to All Things Thrifty, on the "how to" tutorital's my twist on it.

Told ya it was dark. But what do you think??? Doesn't it help?!? I LOVE IT! I didn't put anything behind it like they do in the tutorial, I just put it directly on the chocolate brown wall. And it turned out great!

Go to my other blog to check out our sweet head board my brother just made for us! He's amazingly talented!


  1. Gorgeous! And I love it more knowing you did it yourself. Great work! Also- on the other blog, love the headboard. You Packs (and, er, Hatches?) are so talented.

  2. You ARE SO crafty! I love it. P.S., what's up with the two blogs...I'm lost and confused. P.P.S. when are we going to hang out?
