I like to decorate - I hate to paint. I am the first one to admit that when it comes to painting, I have absolutely zero patience. But I am also way too cheap to pay somebody $400 to paint a room that I can do my self. Case in point, Abby Sue's room. It is hard to tell from this picture, but the wall above Abby Sue's bed has a lot of holes in it.

We had hung pictures there and her cork board, so, while there weren't big chunks of drywall missing, there were a lot of pinprick holes that were quite visible, especially since the wall is now so bare.

Dollar store to the rescue. I found a sheet of these for $1.25

They are so pretty and have silver around the edges that make them actually glow when the light is turned down. I put them over top of all the holes. They add character to the walls and look great. Most of all, they cover all of the holes!

Abby Sue loves them and I love that I didn't have to putty and sand her walls. Cheap fix, but well worth it, wouldn't you say? Pin It


  1. hiya , i love that idea , its pretty and it practical too ( well more practical than filling and sanding spots that dont "need" to be not surprised your abbeysue loves them they are soooo cute x tfs

    1. Thanks Maggie. I do love the quick fixes. Her room will stay like this for a few years. Maybe by then I will not be so lazy, or I will hire someone!
