The weekend was spent painting. It seems that's all we do lately. My daughter's bathroom is painted, the porch ceiling and most of the porch is painted, and I finished my stencil. I'll talk about the stencil in another post when I've gotten over what a complete and utter time suck that was. I haven't taken pictures because my battery is dead and I keep forgetting to charge it, but I will.
In the meantime I've been thinking about hallway lights. There is a door that separates the kid's rooms from the master so I wanted to do something a little more fun in their area, specifically star lanterns. I got the idea from Gwyneth Paltrow. I never thought I'd say that before. Normally I think she's a pretentious cow, BUT, I read an interview where she listed things that she "couldn't live without". Apparantly one of them was a high end (of course) star lantern by Charles Edwards. She hung them going up the stairs so her family could pass them going up to bed at night. I thought the idea was sweet. So I was thinking of these since there are differing heights in the hallway.
I think the idea of having stars above seems so whimsical. I know I would have loved something like this as a little girl so I hope my girl(s) thinks the same.
