DIY – How-to Paint A Diamond Pattern On Living Room Wall

Take an afternoon and redo your living room with this simple painting DIY.

Is your living room looking a little blah? Want to add a little plash of color to a bedroom, office, or your dining room? This diamond pattern living room painting how-to is easy and FAST! We took a 90 inch wide by 104 inch high section of my living room and painted this Do It Yourself diamond pattern on it in 2 hours. That includes the drying time for the paint! You can easily do this painting DIY over the weekend with a friend.

I chose a wall in my living room to paint. I already liked the color that was there, but I wanted to add a blue/grey paint to it. I like the contrast of the tan/blue. If you do not already like the color of the wall you will be painting, paired with the color of the diamonds that you want, this will take longer. You will first need the entire area you will be putting the diamond design onto to be painted the color you want to show through. Like I said, I already like the tan color I had on the wall, so this cut down on application time for me. If you are painting from scratch this will be a two day project, just to be safe.

What you will need -

  • measuring tape
  • pencil (do NOT use a pen they bleed through paint)
  • 1 1/2 inch painter tape
  • paint brush
  • tarp to cover floor
  • paint
  • 6 foot ladder
  • and a friend to help

Easy Sunday Morning Breakfast

ozery bakery morning rounds and egg for breakfast

Sundays are my favorite morning. This is usually when I am able to take a moment from whatever excitement I had the night before, pour myself a nice cup of tea, and take my time getting breakfast. This weekend, some of us in the house were recovering from a lot of fun from the night before. This easy breakfast, with Ozery morning rounds, filled the bill of an easy, delicious, and even healthy breakfast fast to make up for the night before.

With the Ozery morning rounds, you can either get the snack size, that I especially like since they are only 70 calories each, or the regular sized morning rounds. These are about the size of an english muffin. I like to cut mine in half and toast them, but you can also warm them in the oven, or even use them as the base for french toast (OMG good).

Like the Oh What A Bite T-shirt above? It runs from Small to XXLarge, so it is sure to fit almost anyone with a love for the sharks, and it’s awfully cute. You can snag one up for $29.99. Not bad if you ask me.


Grab a Bite Socks

This socks are just adorable. I could slip these on and snuggle up on the couch watching my favorite shark-y shark shark moments on the TV with my friends or all by myself and my cocktails. Woo.


Shark! Who Goes There? Heel

What is a love of anything without the right shoes? Can you imagine wearing these shoes to WORK or school? The best way in my opinion is to wear a toned down outfit, like a red dress with a great cardigan and let these amazing shark heels do all of your talking for the rest of the day. POW!


Shark Wit Earbuds

How cute are these couldn’t you just die? These Shark Wit Earbuds swim in one ear and out the other. Could there be a cuter way to enjoy your favorite music than with these ultra cool sea colored earbuds? I think not. The only thing better would be if you were listening to your music with these while on your yacht. A pool or just a lounge chair will work just as well, though, so if you don’t have a private yacht, don’t stress out too much.

Getting Ridiculous with Busy Bee Blogger – X-Box Kinect Video

xbox kinect video

Good Monday peeps! After an extremely busy weekend where I spent most of my time working, I really just want to play. Yes I know that it is the start of the work week, but I really just want to play. Just kick back at the house, and get ridiculous. No cocktails required (though you can have some if you like).

I recently got an X-Box Kinect for the house, after hearing about it for years from other friends, and now I wonder why I waited to long to buy one. (Not an ad, I just went out and bought one)  I got to play with Dad Bee a few weeks ago.  There was lots of sweat, and some blood (all over the screen to the TV, on the floor, the built in cabinet), and it was AWESOME!   Check out the video below.

What do you all do to completely get ridiculous?  I am loving these new video games, and have convinced myself that they are a great addition to my lifestyle because I am getting off of the couch while playing them.
