Yesterday I was sitting in bed, under my blanket, trying not to freeze. I had already been domestic enough for the day and my work was pretty much finished.
Now that my bedroom is painted, I hate that the walls are blank. But, particularly the wall above the headboard. I was in search of something that I could do with things around the house. So, onward to Pinterest!
I had pinned this project a few weeks back. And, for the past few months, I have been saving tons of these:
While sitting in bed, I turned those toilet paper rolls into these:
Add some glue and a brush to the mix and these are what I came up with.
Now, I didn't open the link to the project on Pinterest. I should have to see how she painted the tubes. I only bought one can of spray paint and sprayed them AFTER I glued them together. Let me tell you, that was NOT successful!
I wasn't going to go get another can of paint, so I looked to see what I had that might work. I had a big jar of mod podge and some paint. I put a tad bit of blue and a squirt of green into the mod podge. Then, I pain-stakingly painted all of these creations! PAIN IN THE BUTT!
I think I like how they turned out. They are a bit darker than I had wanted. Oh well! They will do.
Hanging them on the wall just now was not fun. I think they aren't exactly straight, but they will do.
It fills the space over the bed and that was the point. This DIY stuff is really for the birds!
