I bet Home Depot didn't see this coming.
Not only did she succeed in her vision, but she also went viral for it. Here's what happened.
She posted her journey on TikTok, revealing that a super nice Home Depot employee allowed her and her friends to take 10,000 free paint chips for her DIY project.
The plan for the wall was to do a pink to blue gradient, fading from darker chips on the edges to lighter, white-looking chips on the inside.
We're talking major blow-up. Her TikTok amassed over 15-million views, with 2.7-million likes and comments galore. Her follower count quickly shot up, too — she now has over 15,000 followers!
Each chip was laid down face down on the tape, allowing for easy layering. I can't imagine just how much time this took. Luckily, Skylar had lots of friends to help her out!
Look at that wall! Now you can see how easily that 10,000 number was reached, huh? Skylar and her friends laid out a small tape grid before they started, which guided their work and kept everything level.
How cool is this? The ombré effect turned out absolutely beautiful, and I love that they lined it up perfectly with the trim along the bottom. This is such an AWESOME project.
Thank goodness. The Home Depot employee who helped her was a friend, and so were the owners of that particular Home Depot. No one will be getting in trouble for this stunt!
If Skylar doesn't wear a paint chip dress in her next music video, I will be shocked. I can't wait to see what Skylar does next! It's going to be super cute, I know it.
Even though Skylar said she knew him, people were still really concerned that he would lose his job. (Between you and I, they were kind of rude about it — but that's the internet for you.)
Some people actually joked that he'd been fired. Skylar decided to prove them wrong and set out for Home Depot to meet up with Home Depot Guy, aka Jeff!
They immediately rushed to hug each other, which is a wild thing to see in this day and age.
And in case you're wondering: no, he didn't get in trouble!
He was totally shocked that her TikTok had reached over 16.4 million views! Skylar gifted him a set of cupcakes and wrote him a card, thanking him for everything.
Jeff told Skylar that he watched her music video, and declared that she was "going to make it" as an artist. I can't help but agree. She has talent, AND a big heart!
