Happy Friday Everyone! As I wrote in my little bio, I said I would share pics of my room once I wallpapered it. Well, turns out wallpapering is HARD! How did I not know this? For some reason I thought I could just slap it up there and be done….not so much. You have to make sure its “plumb” to your wall and all sorts of technical things that I was not prepared to tackle, but boy did I try! I borrowed my dad’s level and drew my “plumb” line and even managed to put up one panel as you can see in the “middle” pic. The wallpaper I bought was pre-pasted so all I had to do was soak the back side and stick it up, but my poor little panel was SO wrinkled! And on top of that after I cut a few more panels I realized I did not have enough wallpaper – ugh! I decided to take a time out and rethink things.
During my time out, I had a centipede incident that my co-workers are well aware of! I found the nasty creature on my ceiling above my bed one night in the corner and it spurred me into action. I decided to rearrange my room to get rid of the bad bug karma and thought of a new way to use my wallpaper. I moved my bed so that it was no longer in the corner and wanted the wallpaper and bed to be my focal point. I used my wrapping skills and wrapped the wallpaper around large boards I had and after a few trial and errors managed to hang them mostly centered above my bed!!
What do you think?! There is a window to the right of my bed and I need help to find a curtain, any suggestions? Should I go with more pattern or stick to solid? Have a great weekend everyone!!
