Kindness on Her Tongue



Something Lovely in the Master

DIY Day @ ASPTL

We all know how the Master Bedroom often falls victim to neglect. It is usually the last room to receive the attention that it so deserves. This was no less true in my own home. I decided a few weeks ago to do something special. This is something that I have wanted to do in several places in my home for years now but have been quite intimidated to try. I’ve seen lately many bloggers who have used vinyl wall decals but that just didn’t appeal to me – when I get the bug to do something I need instant gratification. I’ve seen some really nice vinyl decals but I love paint and it is so much cheaper, especially when you have what you need on hand. Now I know that it will break my heart when I one day have to paint over it, but I can do it again and hopefully by then I’ll be tired of and want something new.  I can’t find my before picture, but just above our bed were three glass wall vases with some puny fake purple flowers. I took those down, wiped down the wall with a damp cloth and painted this:

Then I spent the next couple of hours tracing and painting this (with help from my 8 year old son):

And when it was all finished it looked like this:

I really like it and I hope I don’t have to paint over it anytime soon. I think I would cry. (Sorry about the terrible pictures – I’m such a bad photographer)

I’m linking up to Kimba’s DIY day on A Soft Place to Land. Be sure to check out all the lovely projects there!

    Aww! That is beautiful! My wedding ring is inscribed with that very verse; it’s perfect for the master bedroom!

    It’s a very sweet room. I adore the the white rail headboard. It’s very pretty.

    Visiting from ASPTL…I love the scripture first and foremost but every time I hear the word “beloved” my heart skips a beat! It just seems so loving! Great idea!

    Great job! Visiting from ASPTL. This is the verse I had inscribed on my husband’s wedding band, and this very same project has been on my “to do” list for a while now. I’m inspired to get started. Thanks!

    I am speechless. What a beautiful bedroom. What wonderful words to see when you go to bed and when you wake up. It is so warm and comforting. Visiting from ASPTL. Pat.
