A blogger’s busy season is about to fire up with Christmas straight ahead.
Remember 12 Days of Christmas last year? That’s happening again! So I’m mulling over 12, easy junk styled Christmas tutorials to whip up.
And being that my home is generally a dark cave this time of year, it’s nice to be able to resort to the photo studio for light filled pictures to pick up the slack.
It’s a great room with TONS of southern exposure.
And if too bright, I just draw the Ikea cheap sheet curtains to a close and all is well.
And just in case you’re wondering, that above picture wasn’t taken today. I could only dream it was that clean…
This is more like it. It’s always such a shock to see things the way they use to be. 🙂
Anyway, here’s the other side of the room. The wall was pretty beat up with having hung everything under the sun on it. After filling and painting, I decided a little architectural detail would sweeten things up some, and offer more stability when things were hung.
Cheater board and batten it is!
Random sized boards were painted out the same as the wall,
… then each board, spaced out randomly, was screwed onto the wall in the middle only. This allowed me to level the boards with my paint filled hands by tapping them to the desired angle.
I had planned to use more screws, but the boards were so stable, there was no need. Just painted up the screws…
… and it was complete!
Very easy to remove for wall painting as well.
Pretty tricky… the far boards to the right and the left are covering wall sockets. So glad to get rid of some of them at least!
Now for that bundle of blue spaghetti…
Wires and wall sockets ought to be illegal. Haven’t they invented wireless / blue tooth for everything yet?!
Ho ho ho… I think this will work out just fine!
