My Wonderful Walls Transportation Transformation

April 23, 2013

When we moved into our home a little over two years ago, the walls had been freshly painted – which was so great for us because I had a 2 year old, and a 4month old.

I know right away I painted my youngest son’s room with stripes, because I had this new stripe tool that I wanted to test out – but not one other spot in {Read More}
