So, I painted them a lovely periwinkle purple, pushed the twin beds together to make a king size bed with a light green duvet and sheets with a white background and matching periwinkle flowers that were so soft, it was like a cocoon every night. It was furnished with the nicknacks left from years and years prior. For instance, I found an ancient typewriter in one of the closets. It was the tiny travel kind, perfect for holding my makeup brushes. Had I been smarter, I think I might have tried to pull the ribbon out and see what kind of love notes where left by some KKG from long ago. At the end of the year, I returned it to its home in the back of the same closet. I like to think it is still there, but it's probably in the trash.
We live in a rented apartment and I need some cah-lore in this home to make it ours. Color I have- time I lack. Ability I have- funds I lack. So, I hooked up with a friend at Roomates Peel & Stick and pleaded my case. She was happy to help!
LMC's tiny bathroom needed some lovin' and we decided on Gem's Farm. Cute, right? I totally agree.
Vinyl stickies are so easy. Literally, you peel.... and stick. It's a lot like the bend and snap but there is only a 12% chance of getting a date at the end.
What's even better- if you don't like the way they are placed... like this duck and the pond...
Then, un-peel and re-stick...
This guy is my favorite:
But, what's not to love about a little cow & sheep leaping out from "Mommy needs a cocktail?"
I did all this in about 15 minutes-- LMC's new nap time frame. She walked into her bathroom and I felt a new sort of awesome when LMC walked in and said, "OHHHHH! Ma-Mee! So COOL! Hi Cow! Hi sheep! Look! A puppy! I go [garden], puppy! Watch!"
Color, it's what I need around here.
