So, people have been pretty sneaky with masking tape lately. I’ve seen masking tape wallpaper, and wall art (the last picture in the sneak peek. I’m not sure if this is masking tape, but it looks like it to me. It could be wall decal).
So the other day my daughter and I checked out The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats from the library (how I love the book. The art is completely beautiful).
And then it hit me. The BEST idea I’ve ever had!!
So here’s the BEFORE:
And the AFTER!! I’m not gonna lie. I REALLY love the way it turned out, and I’ve totally been giving myself high-fives in my head. Top three reasons why I dig my new masking tape headboard: A) So cheap! I didn’t even use one roll of tape! 2) So fast! I did this in an afternoon (thanks to my neighbor’s laser level). And mostly C) It adds SO much to my room! Every time I walk in I’m like “Hey! I like this place!” Allan knew I was planning this project, but he came home yesterday and walked into our bedroom he totally thought I had bought a bed at first glance. Heh heh… And actually, I’m gonna throw in another point. Point 4 or D or whatever: masking tape wallpaper, or wall art, or awesome HEADBOARDS are perfect for all you renters out there who don’t have a real headboard like us, maybe someday I can even put them in some of our investment property. And PS I didn’t put any pillows on so you could see the full dealio. Don’t judge.
Look for lots more room updates! Besides my dresser dress-up, I’ve got a quilt almost finished (FINALLY), and a new lamp shade, and new curtains, and lots of decorative pillows to make up for my years of pillow famine. Man, I’m ROLLING in projects! I feel like scrooge (the duck) swimming in his vault of gold (I always wondered how that was possible…?)
