Here's where we started:
|90% of the painting job is in the prep work. Prep wisely.|
|Lots of tape. Use a credit card or putty knife to seal the edges of the tape. You'll thank me for that.|
After about 2 hours of taping and 2 beers each, we started painting. I do the detail work of cutting in and Megan rolls. We've painted enough times together to know each others strengths and she's one of the only people I can paint with and not want to take the roller out of her hand and send her away to do something else.
We removed the tape while the second coat was still wet. This is very important when painting - removing tape from dry paint can lead to also removing paint and is super frustrating. Just take my advice and remove while the paint is wet.
|I need to work on removing beer bottles before taking pictures.|
|Thanks Frog Tape for those amazingly crisp lines!|
In the end, I think we have a princess bathroom that's not overly "OHMYGODI'MAPRINCESS" bathroom.
|Big giant crown over the mirror, check!|
|Disney princess towels and princess rules, check!|
|Crown candle holder on toilet, check! And flower poms hanging from the ceiling, double check!|
|Princess, princess, S for Samantha, check!|
And one more picture, because I love these flower poms - it's my favorite part of the entire room!
|Don't be surprised if you see these make an appearance in my new house.|
