I woke up early this morning with the intent on finding something I could use to color the walls of the Miner rooms!! I thought about it all last nite as I went to bed. I figured I could use wallpaper, since it might be impossible to find the paint for the walls...So, Sara and I left the house just a bit after 9am, ate breakfast uptown and headed to our local craft store! Sadly, the craft store wasn't open til' 10am-_-; So, I decided that we'd go to Kmart and check to see if I could find paint or contact paper, something!!
But no luck, the closest I found was a dark wood color contact paper, a bit too dark for what I needed, and it was already almost 11am! My last resort was to go to Home Depot. I had gone there just Monday, looking for paint, but didn't find any, because I was in such a rush.
So, this time, I took my time and while walking up and down a few isles, I came across the section where they had contact paper! Sure enough they had a lighter wood print then the "dark tropical" wood print I saw at Kmart. So I placed that baby in my cart. Then as I worked my way down, I was looking for an isle that had wallpaper, but ended up at the spray paint section instead. I was in that same isle Monday, I didn't notice that there were some lovely colored Rust Oleum spray paints in satin colors that would work perfectly for the rooms! So, as I browsed, I read the labels, and it said that it was good for wood, metal, and plastic. So, I decided on three colors, green apple, summer squash, and lagoon. I figured, I could test it out on the extra cut outs to see if the mdf boards could take the paint or not?
As soon as I got home I tested them out!! To my surprise and content, it worked only on the side in white, the other side, would only soak the paint and leave a lot of blotchy areas. So, the idea came that I could paint the white side, and use the wood contact paper on the other!! You see, at first, I was going to paint one side, one color and the other a different, but I guess it worked the way the original walls actually looked, one side painted the other in the wood decor!! But I would need to get another set for the living room later on...oh well.
