A friend of mine, another DIYer just painted light blue stripes on the walls of her guest room just to add a little interest. She said the project did not take long at all--one day she took an hour or two to measure and tape, and the next day she painted the stripes. What a great and inexpensive way to change things up a little! She is thinking about one day making it a little boy's room, and maybe hanging a cool surfboard on the wall. I love it!
I am now a stay at home mom but in my former life I was a French teacher--I have my B.A., M.A., and A.B.D. (next step to Ph.D. in French literature). I love teaching and miss it but in the meantime I am enjoying operating a part-time home organizing and design business. Contact me for more info if you are interested!
