Loooong ago, I planned to paint pink stripes in my girls' bathroom.
(In hindsight, I'm so glad I chose to photograph that with the toilet seat up.) I'll tell you what. When it came down to it I was simply too lazy to measure and tape out all those stripes, and too cheap to pay someone else to do it.
Meanwhile. Loooong ago I learned the hard way that you can't return opened bedding to Ikea, and planned to make a duvet cover into a pair of bedskirts for my girls. But you know what?
This weekend I found the path of least resistance when I took the pink and white striped duvet and turned it into a couple of sinks for the girls' bathroom.
I got the stripes in there, I used the fabric, and the project took all of 1/2 an hour.
Lazy AND satisfied.
