Taryn's Room: Before & After

So, a couple weekends ago I guess I needed something extra to do (ha ha) so I decided to paint Taryn's room. I had wanted to get rid of the bug wallpaper border since we moved in, and I had a project with her name that I wanted to do and hang up and I wanted it to look pretty in there. So, I repainted (notice I said "I" and not "We"). I was told that I can paint whatever I want, as long as I do the painting. are some pictures!



Here is a closeup of the project I did:

Basically i just painted the letters white, then painted them pink, then sanded the edges to rough them up and make the white come through a bit. Then I stamped them with a flourishy stamp to give them a bit of interest. I like how they turned out.

I still have a couple things I want to do - hang a couple pictures and decide what to do with the Pooh wall stickers that we had up before (currently they are all on the door in a big mess).

I thought I had commented on this. I came and looked when you posted. That counts, right? I hope she's enjoying her newly decorated room!
