I didn't wake up today with this project in my head.
But I am in this room multiple times a day and HATE it.
It is SO ugly! (sorry if any of you reading this have this same border in your home!...if so though, it's gotta come down!)
I also didn't want to tackle this room because 1) We are in a rental. This is not my bathroom. and 2) I didn't want to spend any money and my husband would have killed me if I did.
But I had to. So I got creative.
I ripped the nasty border off. It only took about 20 minutes. After giving the walls a good scrub down, I took some of my white craft paint, watered it down pretty good, soaked up the paint with an old t-shirt rag and wiped the walls down. I gave each wall a good 2 coats. And because the walls here are textured, I had to rub the rag in all different directions to get the paint in all the pockets. It lighted it up pretty good. I took a clean, wet rag and went over the walls to make it look even.
And there you have it! And now, if I want to do any more decorating in my bathroom, I don't have decorate around that, well....NASTY, wall paper border!
