All Signs Point To...Red Wall

I believe in signs a bit too much, but I like to think that I'm one of those types that is always on the lookout for signs...and therefore they appear to guide my life. Case in point - I've been seriously mulling over the idea of painting yet another red wall in my current apartment. However, not sure if I want to deal with the hassles of painting (set up, clean up, fumes, dry time, scattered dropcloths, kicking over the paint can as I do half the time). But wanting this "color pick-me-up" sooo bad...decisions, decisions...then I woke up this morning and saw this luscious red awesomeness created by RiverGirlsStudio, featuring my red leather Luella shoulder bag (bottom center).

So of course you know what that means...heading out to Home Depot for my Behr cranapple. Will post pics of the results later.


  1. when i want something like that... as i am not in a permanent residence, and feel like paint is too permanent for me, i tend to purchase wallpaper and use tacks to pin it down, not quite the same, but you can reuse it, no damage to the wall, etc :) although i don't know the price comparison to painting... hmm. goodluck with the endeavor.

  2. Thanks for the comment Kat! I feel the same way, as I'm a renter too. However...I couldn't fight the urge and went ahead and did it. Only cost me about $23 for the gallon of paint - and I'm so happy with the result! Check the post above for the before and after shots ;).
