Over the weekend I received several questions about my family room and the family sign I made. I thought I would take a few minutes this morning to answer those questions for you.
Where did I buy my striped curtains?
For the life of me I couldn't find striped curtains anywhere so I made mine. I used white curtain panels and painted on the stripes with black paint. Go here to see the full tutorial.
Did I make the handprint art?
Yes, this was a super fast and easy project. You can find out more about it here.
How did I make my family sign?
I have a full tutorial for making my wood signs here.
What color paint did I use in my family room?
The color is barnwood a Valspar signature paint. It's a paint and primer in one and it's a matte finish.
Take your time with the prep work. Lightly sand trim and then clean it off really well. Make sure to tape off everything you don't want painted. I used a paint and primer in one and just used light coats of paint. It does take a lot of work so just blast the radio and get busy! Be prepared for an aching hand because it takes about four coats of paint. To see how I painted my trim go here.
Hope this answers some of your questions. If I missed something just ask. You can also post questions to me through Facebook (I usually check several times a day).
Also don't forget the linky party this Wednesday!!! If you would like me to send you a reminder email just comment me your address.
Have a great Monday!
