Wall flowers have nothing to do with this post, but I figured that because I shared the living room art additions that I should also tell you a little more about what’s going on with my bedroom walls. It took me a while to actually get stuff up on them.
First – a mirror. And when I say, “I asked my dad to help me hang my mirror” what I mean is “I asked my dad to help me hang my mirror and he did the whole thing for me.” (Thanks again, Pops. I so prefer my new “prep” spot in the mornings.) For a month I was getting ready in front of my wardrobe which left me getting ready in a very narrow space. There is about 2 1/2 feet between my bed and the wardrobe mirror:
And the real kicker was the sun shining in right where I was standing when I blow drying my hair. I mean. I sweat enough as it is when I’m blowing hot air on my hair. I don’t need it multiplied by the heat of the sun. I decided, instead, that I wanted to use some of the other space in my room. Everything seemed centralized to the bed, the one dresser and the wardrobe.
He’s precise – which is great when hanging heavy objects – so he measured out the space and drilled holes first for anchors to ensure added support. Before he started drilling, though, I showed him the single-most-amazing-easy-clean-up-after-drilling trick ever. (All props for this ingenious move goes to Sherry and John over at Young House Love. I saw it there first.)
Put painters tape under the spot you’ll be drilling:
No I’m working with this, and I get to blow dry my hair in a whole new part of my room without overheating (any more than usual).
How was your weekend? I’m taking a long weekend myself, so I am just lying low. And baking new bites and taking on new projects that I’ll share with you soon. (Note that I didn’t put a hard date on any of that. I make no promises.)
