It’s finally starting to come together… whew… Finally. We got some pictures hung, The Mr. still wants to re-cut the bluey-greeny color back in around the trim but it’s just little touch ups that are left in there. I still need my books in the shelves, I found a new project on Pinterest that I want to work in… when and if I get done with all the other projects that I have going on, or on the list. But… I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Finally!
Back to the mastered room hint… You’ll never believe it… Glitter, yes they make glitter for paint, I have to admit if I’d of really read the instructions on the back of the glitter I would have passed. It’s actually for the granite like paint, to give texture and a bit or more of bling to your paint treatment. However I’m here to tell you, you can add it regular paint!
So what I did with it was add 2 tablespoons to 2 cups of paint, It stenciled my whole wall. It does make the paint a bit thicker, and a little more sticky…(for want of a better description) The thicker part thrilled me to know end.. because… Hey, stencils and all that. With the 2 tablespoons with gives just a touch of sparkle, but not in your face. (Picture The Mr. in a sparkly bedroom, hahahaha) Just enough to perk up the wall a bit. I used temporary spray adhesive to keep the stencil from shifting around on the wall, I have to say this is the first time I’ve used an adhesive on stencils, I can happily report it won’t be the last. It made all the difference! I re-sprayed the stencil every time I hit the top of the wall, let it get tacky and stick away! Comes right off too… I was a little worried about that part, but nope worked like a charm.
The dresser is my current project and the drawers are dry, so it’s time to start the silver leafing! Yes, with pictures of the whole process this time! 😉
Till next time… XOXO
