We have been in our new home for almost a month and a half now and we are stilling getting settled. I’m mean, not really, most of our stuff is still in boxes and I don’t plan to take much out until we finish the remodel or get to a point where it is a livable renovation. lol With all the demolition and painting going on in the rest of the house I wanted Royal’s nursery to be completed first so she would have a comfortable place to sleep and play. It’s currently not finished but I couldn’t wait to show you guys my progress thus far.
I wanted to try the half and half painting technique or “color blocking” walls. I saw this technique on Pinterest and fell in love with the minimalist and clean look.
I picked where I wanted to draw my line and tape off (4ft 6 in) It doesn’t matter where you draw your line it will look good at any height.
Now if you don’t have an Auto-leveling laser GET ONE! This thing saves me so much time when creating a straight line around an entire room or leveling picture frames. Other than using this simple tool you will have to use a straight ruler. #eh
Once the line was drawn I used Frog Tape to tape off the line. I will definitely vouch for this tape. This tape works better than Blue tape for creating clean lines with NO bleeding. TIP: remove
TIP: Remove the tape while the paint is wet to have the cleanest lines.
I used BEHR in Beacon Blue and it came out perfectly!! It is rich, vibrant, and the perfect backdrop for the furniture and travel theme decor I found for her room. And luckily the blue tile was already on the window sill which created a pretty contrast .

Her room is coming along and I can’t wait to finish it! #staytuned
