Zig Zag Across the Floor (or the walls)

When I moved into my condo I loved everything about it, except the builder beige on every wall. It just screams work to me. A year later I have managed to cover all of it except my massive bedroom (Xmas break project). Bathrooms are small & easy to makeover in just a few quick hours.

During one of my endless Pinterest scrolling sessions I came across this DIY and I was smitten. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/248331366923707548/

In a few hours of blood sweat & tears I had transformed this

Into this

Here’s what you need to get started:

* measuring tape
* chalk line
* frog tape (do not cheap out & get dollar store painters tape, you don’t want your lines to bleed)
* two colours of interior paint

To begin paint your bathroom a solid colour, I chose white and it took 3 coats to get rid of the nasty beige.

Measure
Chalk
Tape
Paint

Just before your paint is dry peel back the tape & voila! You have your very own fun house bathroom to place bets on which friend will puke in it first.
