What a beautiful painting! It's very similar to the one in my photo. Does your friend have a website? If so, we would love to take a look at it.

It's a great painting that currently graces the wall of my living room. I know she was planning to get a site up and running, I'll ask her if she ever did. I'll also pass on the compliment about her work :-) thanks!

It's important to wait until the paint has completely cured before you decide to tackle it. If there is still some wetness, trying to fix the drip could make it worse.
Although my walls are covered with drips from my total lack of painting skills, I have come across a few tips for salvaging freshly painted walls.

To remove the drip you can do one of the following:
-Sand the drip line in a single direction with 220 grit sandpaper. (Make sure that you don't sand any of the surrounding wall.) Clean up the dust.
-You can buy a paint scraper to scrape up drip marks as well as marks made from rollers.
-You can also use a razor blade to scrape up a drip. This is good for latex paint that may form ridges more easily.

After you have removed the drip, you also have a few options for painting:
-Gently brush on a layer with the tip of a small bristle brush.
-Use a foam brush to avoid visible strokes that can be associated with bristle brushes.
-Roll on a couple thin layers with a roller brush.

Let dry, and you should be set.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kerrie L. Kelly added this to Relax a Little — Home Decor Should Be Fun
Reuse and repurpose: Furniture pieces and accessories do not have serve their original purpose. Make new pieces from the old and create a great new look and function.
Case in point: The makeshift nightstand is actually Oliver's accordion case (a gift from a friend) propped on top of a stool. The clever storage solution stemmed from the couple's need to keep the case somewhere safe but also accessible.
Natalie Myers added this to Decorate With Vintage Suitcases
Besides painting the suitcase, another DIY idea is to prop it on legs. That way it saves you the time and effort of having to find a few good looking examples to stack tall enough to create a side table height. And it becomes a unique and inexpensive piece of furniture.
Contributor Killy Scheer and her husband made this fantastic headboard for the bedroom in their old Harlem apartment. The nightstand, on the other hand, is the easiest "DIY" of all: It's simply a suitcase perched on top of a small stool! Get full instructions for making the headboard at Killy's blog, the Studiolo.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Bedrooms With a Personal Stamp of Style
Add cherished vintage pieces. This suitcase sitting on a stool is a fun alternative to a bedside table and great way to showcase a large, well-traveled piece.
Scheer & Co. added this to Give Your Home Some Global Style
Bring in a vintage suitcase, and you'll have people wondering from whence you came.
Don't tell Gidget, but someone else has swiped a potential vintage suitcase dog bed and transformed it into a quirky bedside table. More:Inspiring Materials: Reclaimed WoodBudget-Friendly Home Makeover IdeasStorage With Character: Vintage Crate Shelves
When your bedside table is a suitcase atop a stool, you already have the beginnings for an impossibly chic vignette. A tray, flowers, lamp and artwork are the perfect touches.
Danyelle Mathews added this to 8 Resourceful Nightstand Alternatives
VIntage suitcases are the perfect nightstand alternative — they are readily available and full of charm.In my bedroom, my husband's nightstand is four stacked suitcases we've collected over the years. You could easily place a single suitcase on top of a stool, like in the image shown here, and have an equally lovely vignette.
