How was your Memorial Day weekend? … the unofficial beginning of summer. The pool were we live (we live in a garden style co-op) where we are blessed with (garden <- a given) outdoor pool opened up this weekend (woohooo). Which meant that I got to catch sun-rays and secretly suck in my tummy when I walked around (hey, am I the ONLY ONE who is not ready for summer bikinis yet??).
Today’s make-it shows how I painted straight lines in my foyer + how I managed to remember what color was what stripe! I started by attaching my laser level to the wall, then following the laser’s linewith my painters tape:
Laser level and Blue paint are BFFs!!!!:
By the way, do you see the white coat rack below? Well, THAT IS GONE-ZO!!! Check out next’s week’s Monday’s Make-it to see how I used it’s hardware (hooks) to make a loooonger one with wood.
After prep work is ready, it was time to get our PAINT ON = also known as workout for the arms!!! Up … and down .. up .. and down. Did you notice that I painted the closet door as well?
Ready for a peek of the reveal? Here it is …. (next Monday I’ll show some better quality photos, including how I created the rustic mega-long coat rack):
Now that it’s the unofficial summer commencement, do you have any decorating plans on your to-do-list? I’m actually at the office today (yep, this designer didn’t take a day off) … but thank goodness for the weekend! I’m catching up today on a living room design that I am working on for client in Fleetwood, NY). Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!
