Day 17 of 31 - Start to Finish

Topic is: Start to Finish

Guess what? I have something to blog about tonight. It's my never-fail start a project and never finish it side of me. About 2 years ago I started working on re-decorating my main bathroom. It's upstairs and is really only used by me and my daughter. Thanks to a half bath on the main level, my bathroom doesn't see much activity. Therefore, I've never really finished what I started.

Don't get me wrong. We have a working bathtub, toilet, vanity, sink, etc. But what never got finished is the re-decorating of the walls. I did paint 3 out of 4 walls. That's not where I failed. Where I failed is the big wall that has obvious defects from the original home owners not properly preparing the walls when wallpapering 30 years ago.

For quite some time I thought I would buy zebra print wallpaper for the unfinished wall, but man, it's expensive; even just for one silly wall. Funds weren't available for something so unnecessary so there the wall sits - unfinished. Until tomorrow.

I put my foot down and reminded myself the other day that there are other options besides wallpaper. I've decided to stencil the wall with zebra stripes. A store bought stencil, not hand cut. Today I went to Hobby Lobby and got what I'll need for the project.

I've already started prepping the bathroom for me to be able to start first thing in the morning. I've never done this kind of a project, so hard telling how it will work out. My fingers are crossed that it will be smooth sailing once I get started.

Here's to hoping I have a once and for all completed bathroom after this weekend. Go me!
