New home projects almost always start out with bright hopes and good intentions: that table will get refinished, new window treatments will be hung, the accent wall will be, well, accented. But more often than not, things get in the way and weekend DIY projects fall down on the priority list, leaving you with half-done eyesores where your Pinterest-inspired dreams once stood.
I know about such experiences first hand. I rent a small New York City apartment and the walls are painted a boring shade of beige. There’s no frame or art canvas capable of livening up these walls. So in April 2013, I ordered four gorgeous paint samples in sea greens and soft gray-blues; my husband methodically painted a stripe of each color on the wall so we could determine which one we liked best.
