These days life can be such the hustle and bustle that it’s easy to forget the smallest, most important of things. Half the time we are so busy that we don’t even realize we’ve lost sight of the small things… until it slaps us in the face.
Upon our latest move to Vegas, the mister and I now have much different schedules than we were used to in LA. I might be asleep as he goes to work early or I’m already asleep when he returns. You see, Vegas never sleeps, so if you moved here to work… at first it feels like you don’t sleep either. Needless to say, we were missing the smallest of “i love yous” before bedtime, etc. So… why not just paint it on the wall!!!
First, I used a ruler to help with the straight lines and drew the letters on the wall in pencil. Being that I am not the painter, it did take a bit of time to get adjusted to the paint brush. If you want to create skinny letters, like so, make sure to buy the finest pointed paint brush you can find… the lines made from the brush always get thicker than you expect once in paint. Additionally, I first recommend to test the pencil and a good eraser somewhere hidden on the wall. Once the paint dries you will want to erase any remaining pencil lines, yet you want to make sure that the eraser won’t smear rubber on the wall or dull the overall paint job.
I enjoyed painting Words to Remember in our bedroom so much that I had to add something to the bikini studio. What better way to help a CurleeBikini client feel beautiful while being fitted for a swimsuit, than to simply write it on the wall! Now I find myself preferring this mirror over others in the house… of course!
And for the final spot to paint something spectacular… this is one half of our living room which serves as the Drift Refine desk and blogging center (his and hers in one). Now, the words to paint here are still up for debate. It needs to be inspiring and thought provoking, yet also a general expression of us as a creative couple. Note this is also the main room one enters from the front door (at the left of the image), so we’d also like it to be indicative to welcoming our house guests.
We’re taking suggestions… What Words to Remember would you paint on this wall of our creative center and living room?
