After initial assessment of the new room size, I first went to the Home Depot, gathered paints (the small sample sizes are perfect, at about $3 a pop - so for a small budget you can get a handful of colors to try and not feel you have broken the bank). I also got some drywall tape in the lightest weight I could find. And some spackle. I taped the seam where the 2 walls adjoin, added the spackle, let dry, sanded, and repeated. Then I painted the wall a pretty pale peachy pink and added in a bit of rag painting of a slightly darker shade of the same color.
my Etsy shop and I plan to continue making more. Ultimately I would like to have little 5-6" rodents for sale as well as dresses and things to go with them. The costumes are changeable and no one, even a rat, likes to wear the same thing day after day.
Hope you are having a lovely creative week!
