DIY Metallic Molding, The Outcome

So finally as promised (especially to a certain bloggy friend) I am posting pictures of my DIY Metallic Molding project. It's Sunday and I'm nursing a hangover some tired feet as I walked down State St. all day yesterday in the gorgeous weather and followed it up by a night of dancing in ridiculously high heels. Enough complaining about how great my life is lol. With a little coaxing and a lot of cooking love I was able to convince senor bf to do this for me. In case you missed my previous rants, I'm really terrible at measuring, hanging, hammering etc etc. Which is hilarious because I loovve DIY projects and my secret goal in life is to be on HGTV :)

I really enjoyed how this project turned out. It's so easy, yet so chic. I already have silver accesories and am planning on adding more which I think will tie in really well with this. I will say that i think it could work even better for others because we do have textured walls which makes the silver tape look textured as well. If you have flat walls I think you will enjoy this project even more!

I know, I know. I need to get some cuter pillows lol. But the bf has some really strong opinions about pillows, mainly that he doesn't like them everywhere lol. We inherited these from his parents and they work to tie in the black accents I have so for now I am settling. I will do a great big post when I get to order the pillows I've been eying on Etsy. We also inherited the table you see, which is cute but I plan on replacing as soon as my wallet allows :)
*** I should also point out the the Inspiration picture has the details and instructions on how to do this project, just click to enlarge :)
