Oh, its happening!

 I really should be working.  I have a massive stack of stuff to do, but gold paint has distracted me.  I couldn't stop thinking about it, so I just decided to do a test wall.  I'm sure a lot of folks aren't going to be loving this crazy wall like I do, but that is what design is all about. So here is the test wall. (PS- I haven't even finished with the second coat of the base color yet. I'm impatient. Just had to see.)

I now need to finish painting the room white at some point, and then I will get back to the gold squiggles. Its a big wall, but this little section went pretty quick.

Oh, and here is an update on the rest of Hotmess land.  I finally switched out the Maskros to the dining room and stole the chandelier from my kitchen for this room.  Saturday was a day of musical chandeliers.  I like this one for the sitting area.  My goal for this crazy mess is going to be an artsy-glam mix...


More later gators.

Ok, you're making me majorly jealous with that gold squiggle wall :) So I now might have to find a place to do something equally as glamorous... Way to go Ms Creative!

I absolutely LOVE it. Can't wait to see the whole thing. It's perfect! Spoken by a girl who has gold zebra print wallpaper in the powder room.....

I'm really liking this! Is that a paint pen you're using? Such a quick, cheap and easy alternative to wallpaper :)

Fantastic ... LOVE Gold ... so warm and playful and sophisticated and dramatic and glam ... all wrapped in one! Can't wait to see the finished product!

By the way, meant to tell you I checked out your "overlays" and am seriously obsessed and trying to find where I am going to use them. Have been snapping up photos of furniture pieces that I want to re-create! Thank you!

Very pretty, am tempted to try that in silver. The pineapple lamp is a super cool touch! I particularly love those two white lamps in the first picture, I've seen them before but can't find them for sale anywhere, where did you find them? (If it's not a secret of sorts!) Thanks.
