DIY: Rainbow wall

HELLOOOOOO BLOGDOM!  I know, I know, it's been a wee while since my last post...wee meaning months :-/  But rest assured, I haven't stopped caking or creating!  I just haven't found the time to write about them.

Until now.

So, behold!  I'll be posting EVERYTHING I've been up to while I was MIA within the next couple of weeks.  I can't wait to share them with you!!  :-)  But that does mean that I won't get to share my monthly glimpses with you until the end of August, where I'll combine the months of June, July and August into one big monthly glimpse :-)

Today I am very excited to share with you my twins' bedroom rainbow wall feature.  It was super easy to do, just a bit time consuming, but the end result was truly worth-it!  It just creates such a cool space to admire, and definitely adds a WOW factor to any kiddies bedroom.  Best of all, it's temporary!  So when it's time to switch things up again, you can just peel them off and you're back with a beautiful empty canvas to work on.  Of course, you could totally go permanent by painting directly onto the wall.  My way is suitable for those who don't want that sort of commitment, and is also ideal for renters who want to make their temporary house a home.

Before we get started, let's all sing "You're my rainbow wall" {to the tune of Oasis' Wonderwall}.

OK, so here's what ya need:

As well as some tape to adhere to your wall.

Oh, and let's not forget...
{Note: my 'helper' wasn't really much help...Carlyle just climbed up and down the ladder the whole time, making the process of application even slower...at least he had a blast}.

After dead arms and sore feet {from climbing up and down the ladder naive to the fact that I was supposed to protect my soles with footwear}, we got a pretty awesome rainbow wall!!

Not sure how long we'll keep this rainbow wall up for, but hopefully it'll last for the rest of the year.  We'll see if I get a sudden urge to create something else before then, eh?

I hope you all enjoyed today's DIY feature!  Be sure to give this easy project a go in your own kiddo's bedrooms {or another room in your home} and send me pics of the end product!  You could even switch things up by changing the colour theme, or the shape!!  The sky's the limit!!

So go on and have fun with this project and I'll see you back here soon!!
