Even my husband knows how much I detest that room, and he tries to help by cleaning up after the boys.(He's such a sweet heart). So one day I was complaining about that space in our house and he suggested if I hate it so much do something about it. And off I went to search for ideas on pinterest! well I searched and searched and didn't really see anything I adored or really wanted to live with and kinda gave up for the day. later on in the month I was looking at the boys board to see what else I needed to do in their space to make it more organized and decorate a little more and BAM this popped up on my page and I fell in LOVE!!
ceiling tile printed one (raised foam areas to make it textured) I was all excited and looked pretty stupid for a few min. I could not believe my luck then reality set in and I was suddenly hit with the thought "how much is this going to cost me?" so I looked... it was only $25 for a roll of like 300' I only needed a 4x6 area so I was good to go then I remembered I had a 50% off coupon that I could not use that day because the fabric was already on sale so I was like SCORE!!!! (again I probably looked like a drunken idiot I was so excited I couldn't focus on the fabric I needed cut or anything else.
A week later up it went on my walls with the help from my 7 year old!!
It was sooo simple I filled the tub with 3" of water stuck the precut strips in till it was all wet, pulled it out and let it drip off then had my helper line up the bottom while I lined up the top. Seriously that simple we used our pampered chef pie crust roller to roll out the air bubbles and a towel to dab off the extra glue and water. then we just had to wait for it to dry.
I came back after an emergency trip out of town to visit a sick family member and decided to start painting with the paints I had laying around from the rest of the house that way it all tied in together No More Random Room Themes!!!!(inside joke here sorry if you don't get it).
I painted a few in one color and then a few more in another color making sure there were not two squares in the same vertical rows the same color. as they filled in and I was waiting for some to dry I went over the other dry ones with the same pampered chef pie crust roller rolled in a thin layer of gold or silver acrylic craft paint.
some of the squares I did not paint before going over it with the roller so only the raised areas got color and the lower areas remained white.
My hubby replaced the faucet in the bathtub and the handles and that all works with no leaks now so no one will burn themselves with the dripping boiling hot water when they are showering.
I still need to get trim and quarter round for the edges and add a few more touches to the whole bathroom like a NEW trash can I am thinking silver or some sort of metal look. and I need to get the little silver tray back on the counter with a candle on it to help with the boy smell!!! then I will be completely happy with this room.
