|We had to remove the random, 1970s light and light switch so we could add the doors.|
|My electrician, Ehren, tucking all the capped wires into the wall so it is flush. Don't you love the candlestick light?|
|Up go the doors. Cozy is already exhausted.|
Next, I primed the doors with white, interior primer. It took about 3 coats to cover completely. The nice thing about primer is that it dries fast (approximately 1 hour between coats) and rolling it was super quick. Once it was dry, I started the labor-intensive process off taping off the chevrons.
Since the headboard is seven feet wide, I made each chevron one foot wide. Five hours later (ughhh) I was done taping and it looked like this...
The easiest part was painting within the tape and the funnest (I know that's not a word) part was ripping off the tape. The time-consuming taping and measuring was way worth it.
|We got new nightstand lights that were more proportional to the height of the bed. IKEA of course.|
