Inspiration for the Girls - Issue 1

Welcome to the first installment of my blog series, "Inspiration for the Girls."

If you're thinking about redoing or updating a girl's room or just adding some missing flare, I bet you'll find an idea or two in these rooms. There is something for everyone: color, style, old and new, and the most interesting--pattern. If you've been afraid of pattern in the past, but love how it looks in a room, perhaps this series will give you the little boost of courage you need to get it on the wall.


My friend Cay is a mom to three girls. I'm sharing some inspiration and starting my series with her oldest daughter's bedroom. Last year she added a diamond-filled, tone-on-tone accent wall to the room.

Measuring tape
Paint and painting supplies
Drop cloth
A good friend or willing spouse (it will take two of you :-))
Time, lots of time

The wall is all one color with two different finishes. The base paint is egg shell and the diamonds are gloss. It made for a subtle, delicate finish.

A few more from around the cute room...

Sassy storage...

A big thank you to my friend Cay and her daughter Colbi for letting me share their latest project.

So, are you ready to paint diamonds? If diamonds are a bit much for you, be sure to tune in for next week's installment. I'll be showing you a pattern you can create without any paint at all.

Have you ever painted diamonds? I'd love to see them. Send me a picture to woodbanklane@gmail.com.
I hope your week is off to a good start...
