More Words.....


I'm at it again with the words on the walls. OK, so far I only have them over my bed and in the playroom. Anyway, I recently went to a Uppercase Living party and could not resist this phrase for my breakfast room. Breakfast room? Why is it a breakfast room, no one eats breakfast here, just dinner. This project required me to remove a very heavy iron piece I had up, remove the bolts, spackle and paint! That was the easy part. I thought I was free and clear when the paint dried. I planned just to stick this sucker up like the others I've done. No, such luck. Notice that when I took the before shot (after the prep work was completed!) it is daylight. Please note the darkness outside in the next shot. It is amazing I did not give up on this one, but I don't give up easy. This particular brand (mentioned above) required me to rub the saying onto the transfer paper and then stick it to the wall. Let me just say that I did not have to go to the gym and do arms after my "rubbing". I rubbed and I rubbed and the I rubbed some more. I rubbed so much I put holes in this stinkin thing. Anyway, it would not "transfer" to the transfer paper. So, I HAND PEELED each letter off, and the flower and stuck them to the transfer paper and then slapped this bad boy on. Thankfully it stuck on there. I'm thrilled with the results, but not the work. Their slogan is "transform your room in minutes", um no I don't think so! Just passing this information along in case you go to one of these parties.

You peeled each letter off? Wow! That's great that it turned out. I know from experience that it takes longer than a few minutes to apply. It's very frustrating, but, the finished product is oh so pretty!
