Feels so good to see that Stephanie Lynn from Under the Table and Dreaming featured my Contact Paper Window Decal project. Thanks for the recognition from her and many of you that have left nice comments about it.
We mounted the loft TV on the wall last week. We knew we didn't want those ugly cords connected to the TV to be seen. I had done a few searches to see what our options were for hiding them. Turns out, there are several. My least favorite was the cord cover and I knew that wasn't going to work for me. Here are the pieces we bought from Home Depot. They are wall plates that allow you to pull the cords through but keep them hidden in the wall. After we figured out where we wanted the holes, using the template in the package, we cut a hole right under the TV mount for the cords coming from the TV. It made me a little nervous cutting a hole in the wall. The cords also needed a place to exit at the bottom. We cut the second hole straight down from the top one, right next to the outlet where the cords would be plugged in. To make it easier to get the dropped cords, we installed the top plate first. It just goes into the hole and the screws tighten it against
Now that the nursery walls are painted, I wanted to add a little something to them. I've always wanted to do a striped wall and here's my chance. I was noticing in my pinned nurseries, this one and this one had striped walls. I thought about stripes all over but decided to go with a striped accent wall instead.

I chose to go with a simple white stripe to keep the room neutral since I will be adding bright colors later. The color I chose is Behr Snow Fall. I started by measuring my stripes. The wall is eight feet tall making it 96 inches but I wanted the stripes to be the same width the whole way down. Taking away the baseboard, that left me with 93 inches of wall to work on. I decided I wanted seven stripes, three white and four gray ones. That made my stripes 13
From the start, I wanted all the bathroom cabinets to be dark like the master bathroom . I began my usual search online for more ideas. As I was searching, I came across bathrooms with gray cabinets. I must say, I love the look. I have seen plenty of gray kitchens but never thought to have the bathroom cabinets gray as well. source source source I'm a little torn now. I like the gray cabinets but with all things, my tastes change, so not sure if I would still like them in a couple years. If I go this route, it would totally throw a curve into the plan since the walls are already painted. Gray walls and cabinets would be overload. What do you think about gray cabinets? Are your cabinets a color you don't see often?
