  • Grid Pattern Picture Wall

    My method to prevent destroying the wall This seems daunting and time consuming, and it was! BUT it was way easier than any other alternative I could think of! It worked for me, so here is how I did it! Originally, I planned on having all of frames hanging on the wall. A construction miscommunication occurred and our thermostat ended up right in the middle of this wall! Devastating- I know. But thanks to IKEA, this floating picture ledge worked out perfectly and I really like the way it turned out!

  • Muted Rainbow Nursery

    This is for sure my favorite room in the whole house. I am on love with how it turned out. I wanted a relaxing and atheistically pleasing room where I could enjoy the view while sit up at night rocking my little baby to sleep. I ordered a sample of these Rainbow Decals from Urban Walls for $5. I tried out a few paint samples, and Cabbage Rose by Sherwin Williams was exactly the mauve pink color I was looking for and matched the decals. I decided I wanted to do one wall with the decals and that I wanted the decals to be on a white wall. I am…
