If someone asked me for one piece of advice about painting the walls of your home, I wouldn’t hesitate for a minute to say, “Don’t do it if you ain’t feelin’ it!”

Actually that sounds like a great title to a country song.

“Don’t Do It If You Ain’t Feelin’ It”

Don’t paint if you ain’t in the mood,

Don’t paint if your day comes unglued.

If you need to take a break from paint,

Do it.

Just don’t do it if you ain’t feelin’ it.

With lyrics as catchy as those, Blake Shelton will be breaking down my front door to get after ’em! (A girl can dream 😉 )

Not painting is exactly what I did after sharing with you that I was redecorating the bathroom. I trimmed out some of the walls, and then told myself that I couldn’t go any further because I didn’t know how to remove the light fixture and switch plates. 🙂

And that’s where this project sat.

Sat on Thursday.

Sat on Friday. Sat until I felt like painting again

And finally on Saturday, I wanted to paint again.

I found myself full of inspiration, and not only did I take down the light fixture, the towel ring and the switch plates, but I finished painting AND wallpapering.

Now I find myself in a quandary. Should I paint the paintable subway tile looking paper or not?

It will need a trim board across the top to frame the paper, but I am really loving the crisp white look of the paper tiles.

So I am asking for your advice. Which would you prefer,

Paint the wallpaper tiles to match the color of the wall or leave it white?

You don’t need to answer in the form of a country song, but hey if you feel inspired…
