My PINK Painted Striped WALL


Well, I have to tell you.....awhile back while looking at Bella Mary's Home aka Isabellascloset, she had the BEST PINK STRIPED WALLS and, I WAS PINK with ENVY!!!!
I really wanted some PINK STRIPED WALLPAPER. Not able to find any...I took matters into my own hands. I went and bought some 1940's PINK PAINT and lots of PAINTERS TAPE and in a matter of an hour and a half...I had painted myself my PINK STRIPED WALL!!! And it only took ONE COAT, just like the paint can said!!!
I love this wall as it is in my "shop" part of the house. I have moved things around once again....Since our signature trademark "Is Because We Love Playing House" I have to...you know, PLAY HOUSE all the time!!! I get these brain storms and love doing this....so I am constantly playing house....

The picture below...it what it looks like right now....I have ANOTHER CLEAN SLATE to play house with and I will of course, show pictures of it when I am done. I found this darling (SIX and a HALF FOOT TALL Cupboard, already painted white, and with that adorable SCALLOP across the top), at one of my favorite shops. One thing I know for sure....it will be forever changing as the mood strikes me....OH I LOVE BEING A GIRL!!! ~Amy~

What an adorable cottage look the strips give your room. I really love the cupboard and can't wait to see the playthings you add to it.

So Amy - when do I get to come and see it? Looks like fun- can you help me do a wall in the shop? A friend just helped me do a wonderful pearl treatment on a ceiling at the shop - really fun and easy. Your site and your stuff (and you, of course) are beautiful as always!! Polly :0)
