master bedroom redo // SO MANY MISTAKES WHILE DOING THIS THING

plz ignore how embarrassingly awkward i look (BUT WOW I WAS SO TAN)
ohhhhhhhkkayyyyy. so this is legit like A REALLY REALLY DELAYED POST. but you see, I kept on putting it off for other project posts that I wanted to share, and finally I was like JULIA YOU ARE SO PROUD OF THIS ONE POST IT ALREADY. 

so here I am. *giggles*

In June of 2016, I took on the largest task that I had ever done in my parents master bedroom. The ceiling had water leakage stains (plus it was that fabric-y ceiling), the carpet HAD TO GO, the walls had these funnily patched up places, the green color was horrid. And, since my mom's birthday was coming up, I was like "okay this is your gift."

I had a lot of troubles with this project, starting with the ceiling. I painted over each and every square with a paint brush at first, because of the grooves, then rolled over it. After a solid 4 coats on the water stained areas YOU COULD STILL SEE THE BROWN. I was soooo frustrated, but was thrilled to find a spray paint that would solve it. (WARNING: it stinks really bad + spray evenly or you'll get bubbles)

 Then, I made the HUUUUUUUGGGGE mistake of getting trim and wall paint in the same brand of paint. hahahahahahahahahaaha. guys the cans looked the same *moans* After two of the large walls, I realized I had been painting the walls white and not the mega soft cream. #iwantedtocry (also poor sare, she was in the room when i found this out *cringes*)

 During this time, I would not let my mom see the room. I wanted a complete surprise reaction, which I still think was the best part. OMW THO the guy with the staple gun for the carpet was staple gun crazy. #plzcalmdown

 In the end, my mom saw the room and let me tell you, all those exhausting moments were worth it. Plus, we went to hobby lobby for the decorations hehehe AND I MADE MY PARENTS A PALLET BED FRAME *grins* 

also. I only had 4ish days to do all this plus i was off sugar. 

tho....sometimes I walk in the room and shudder from memories *nervously laughs*

how do you like it??
any big mistakes when doing a project?

  10. Mistakes? Ha. Ha. Ha. Yeaaaaah....um? Anything to do with duck tape, you give me duck tape--and it won't be there when you come to get it back. I'm sorry, it sticks to my fingers and the hairbrush and whatever that is over there....but we're just about to re-do my room that I share with my sister *New loft-bed, desk, chest of drawer, closet, decorations AHHHHH I'm SO excited!!! XD But, you did a really good job! I really like it, your mom is so lucky! XDD
