My boudoir-- I like it, but--
it's just lacking in general. It's a little blasé. So after careful consideration ("careful", meaning, "oh that sounds good I'm gonna do that! Now now now!"), I've decided that it will get a mini makeover over the course of a month or so.
And when I say "mini", I mean like total rearranging, a new bed, AND molding.
First things first-- I had a hankerin' to put up somethin' on this nekkid wall:
Now, this here:
is in my entryway, and it's my favorite piece of wall art in the house. It sets ze mood. And one random day a random thought came into my random noggin, and I thought to myself,
"Self, you should make a personalized piece of wall art inspired by that one there."
Raided the daddy-o's place and came up with a good old piece of particle board. Yes, I said particle board. Used for shelving. Hey, it'll work grrrreat. White coat of paint, and off I went.
I would like to take this opportunity to say that my room looks like this (everywhere) every time I start stenciling anything. And, that after feeling like an idiot for trying this out, I want you to know that freezer paper does in fact stick to wood too when ironed down. Just so you know. It's all I use now.
A not-so-light sanding and a little stain added, and voila.
If you know where this quote came from, and you are now singing this song (this is a snippet of my favoritest song evah), we are soo meant to be BFF.
And let's go to lunch, new BFF, forevah.
I guess that was kind of redundant.
Anywho, this needs a frame, of course. Of course!
I raided my stash 'o crap.
And came up with 4 strips of plywood.
I know. Plywood. I'd say this kind of frame was. . . eh. . . 80% laziness and 20% cheapness. Give or take.
Spray painted the plywood black, cut it on 45's, wood glue'd it down and put some nails from the nail gun in there and we are DONE.
There we are. One of a kind and completely free. Now I'm singing my song again. And possibly every time I head towards my bathroom.
