School is out and I am busy trying to get a few little things done before Summer gets into full swing. There are so many fun outdoor things that I like to do with my kids during the summer, so I knew I had to get the ball rolling on a few personal items. So during naptime on the last day of school I started with this:
a boring wall. This is our extra bedroom down in our basement. Next year it will be filled with school materials and we will do a majority of our school down there. Jocelyn will be on the computer for a few things next year, so I didn't want her to be completely by herself. Plus the toys in the toy room are driving me BONKERS. So this boring wall. I found several examples online of square patterns, different squares & rectangles combined, circles. I like the square idea, but that would require a lot of measuring and I was not up for that. I then just started using my laser level and started taping away. I started with a few random vertical lines.
I then made a few random horizontal lines to form the rectangles and squares.
I put a little piece of tape in the middle of each shape and labeled it with a paint color. I didn't want to have any of the same colors touching each other.
I pulled the tape up the next morning and whoola!!
Can you just say I was extremely pleased with the results. I pretty much fail at any household type project....especially painting walls..so this is one for the books:)
