You see, the previous paint job I did was Cheetah markings all over her wall, and tons of them. Here is the beginning picture so you can see what I had to work with:
Obviously, this wall needs primer, so I started by going to Lowes. I had a can of primer leftover from my previous painting which saved me some money. Once I got to Lowes, I grabbed some stirrers (free) and picked out the bright pink color to cover this very dark Cheetah wall. I decided to go with a quart, why not, right? WRONG ANSWER!!! I figured $12 for a quart and $24 for a Gallon. I will only need 1 quart for one wall, right - WRONG ANSWER!! I ended up buying 3, yes THREE, quarts costing $36! Now, if I just bit the bullet in the beginning and bought the gallon, I would have not only saved money, but saved time from going back to Lowes three, yes 3 times.
So, I get home and prepped the wall and started priming:
|(Sorry for the blurriness of the picture, I was using my husband's cell phone, though you can see that the primer is not covering, right? Yup, had to do the primer 3 times - ugggghhhh!)|
Here, finally, is the finished product:
I also decided to fix-up an end table we had for Kylie to use as her "side table". Here are before and after pictures:
