Design on a budget? Check. The thought of my husband and I painting horizontal stripes on the wall ourselves? Gulp.
Along with a few cans of paint, the purchase of a $70 self-leveling laser level was hands down the best money we have EVER spent! Admittedly, this is the first DIY project that we did ourselves that was actually fun. Once we got those stripes on wall ... whew!
Before painting the office it was a shade of blue green. It was a beautiful color and went well with the décor in the rest of the house. The problem was that it was just dark and there was no escaping that. I've always said that it's amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do, and this office is no exception.
Welcome to my newfound happy place. It's light, bright, airy, cheery, inspiring and perfect for ME.
