IT STILL DIDN'T WORK!
I was ultra frustrated so we had our friend who is a professional house painter come in. He told us we'd have to paint over the stripe with primer, then retape and paint it with the wall color (which was custom mixed and we had no more of) and then after it was sealed, paint the pink stripe.
Now the nice thing is he cut a little piece of the green base coat out of the wall for us so at least we can get the right color to cover the stripe. But that sure did seem like a lot of work. And to be honest, the more I looked at that stripe, the more I hated it. Now it could be because it gave us so much trouble, but when I started looking for ideas and pictures online, you never see just this solitary horizontal stripe. There's always stripes flanking it or another design.
We thought about fixing the stripe and then painting a light blue stripe (to match the color in the fabric) on top and bottom, but again, seems like a lot of trouble and I wasn't sure I was in love with that idea either.
Because I have NO decorating sense at all (those of you who have seen my home know what I'm talking about...it's just not my gift), I started looking at pictures online. And you know what? It seems more people are just painting the room a solid color and either using decals or other decorating accents to color up the room.
Now, THIS is what we are thinking...no pink stripe and...
Then this around the entire room:
And then maybe these scattered about the room:
But who knows. Because I have not an ounce of creativity in me when it come to this, it might just look awful. We could likely get rid of the dots all together and do something else. I really like these name things...
So stay tuned...you never know what might happen in this room!
And by the way, if you haven't bought your iPad tickets, you need to do it NOW! You are running out of time! (in the spirit of the old Chaos ride from Oprland...YOUR TIME IS RUNNING OUT!)
