My 5 year old (Tate) is OBSESSED with all things swimming. Including the ocean and learning how to surf. I really wanted to give all my children rooms that reflect their personalities. So that is why I decided to go with a vintage surf theme in his room. These colors just screamed Tate to me and I HAD to do them together. I thought some really bold stripes in a fun pattern would be fun and funky and that’s just how it turned out! Although this was the HARDEST room to paint, with 4 different colors and those angles!! Seriously, the angles kicked. our. butts!! It’s a good thing my smarty pants sister was there to come up with the idea of the bubble level app! Worked like a charm and totally did the trick! We were able to get the lines laser sharp and all the same angle! The caulking in this room was pretty treacherous. Not going to lie…it took for.ev.a!!! And seeing that I am a painting Nazi… my lines had to ALL be perfectly taped straight and caulked to perfection! In the end… this room is bursting with Tate’s personality… so full of joy and bright and cheery just like my Taters!
