Okay. I last left you with this...
a freshly painted room, ahem, a freshly painted playroom.
(See Step 1 HERE.)
Now, if you remember, one of the challenges of this room is the pool table. Again, we're thrilled to have a pool table...and most definitely want to keep it, however, I feel like a few changes are necessary to make it work in this space.
Because it's staying in the room, I want to make the most of it. So, last week we bought (as in, my dear, sweet husband went way out of the way to pick up) a ping-pong table top.
This will serve 2 purposes...
1. a ping-pong table
2. a flat workspace
Now, to make it work in the room...
I bought a 9ft. by 12ft. plain dropcloth from Home Depot (abt. $30).
(This particular dropcloth was pretty dark...a kacki color. Thanks to Fleming's smarts, I bleached it in the tub for a couple hours...which made it much, much lighter...1 bottle of Clorox in 1/3 filled tub. However, if you have a container large enough to do it outside, I WOULD.)
I knew I wanted stripes, so I measured out 1 foot spaces with painter's tape. (Remember to put the tape on the insides of the space you're not painting...if that makes sense...)
Using a foam roller, I painted every other stripe black. (And, yes, I used regular indoor wall paint. It's a little stiff now, but I'm pretty sure it's going to work itself out.)
I envision it acting as the rug in the room...
And, I'll confess, I'm way excited about it.
Don't forget to run by the other Blogging Without Borders crew... they'd be thrilled if you said hello!
