I’ve said it before, but my mom is pretty much amazing at everything (see: 4 Home Decorating Tips from My Ingenious Mama). I love bouncing ideas off her to get inspired. When she gets an idea in her head, there’s no stopping her. As was the case with her accent wall!
My parents moved to Arizona a couple years ago and I couldn’t wait to see what they would do with their new home. As crazy as it sounds, one of my favorite parts has become their entryway – you can see why.
My mom put up this accent wall ENTIRELY on her own, from beginning to end (like I said, pretty much amazing), for only $125! I want to do something similar in our master bathroom, so I got the inside scoop and I’m sharing every detail! Here’s my Q&A with the woman herself: Mama.
Over the weekend, Mr. Rissler and I decided to take a stab at chalk painting a dresser we keep in our walk-in closet. This was our first time using chalk paint, so we wanted to test it out before taking on anything too big and noticeable. This dresser was a hand-me-down from my parents and in need of a little TLC!
Chalk paint is known for requiring little-to-no prep work (e.g. sanding and priming), but we still needed to lightly sand it to remove the loose paint around the drawers. If you don’t remove loose paint, it can peel off soon after the new coat has dried and undo your hard work! 😥
