When we purchased our house, I knew we would be painting the hallway, and we quickly updated it from a dark green to a bright cream. I loved the crisp clean look it gave, but even I have to admit it looked a little plain Jane.
I masked out my line with painters tape. I read a great tip for painting stripes: paint along the outside with an almost dry brush as this seals the edges and prevents bleeding under the tape.
I couldn't wait to whip the tape off. Sure enough, the lines were nice and sharp.
I picked up 4 frames from our local dollar store and framed some of my own photos.
You can find me over on Magic City Thistle, where I'm a first time homeowner learning as I go and trying to inject my own style into our new nest, with the help of our sweet little rescue dog Murphy. I love a bargain, am addicted to thrift stores and am an incurrable crafter.
From one Kate to another, thank you so much for letting me stop by and visit.
