Ok, so I finally did it. I hung the wallpaper in the dinning room. It was much easier than I thought it was going to be. Once the first sheet went up and I got the hang of trimming it and sliding it around the wall with my palms I had it all up in a few hours. The hardest part was cutting around the window sills, but with a steady had I don’t think I did too bad of a job.
I also changed the color on the top of the room. The new color is called Suede Gray. It’s a greige color and I think it makes the room look more sophisticated. I’ll also say that the room looks a lot larger.
Once that was complete I also changed the wall behind the mantle in the Living Room because I wanted the rooms to relate to one another in some way. So I did away with the stripes and painted that wall in the Suede Gray as well and now it looks like this:
Here are a couple of close up shots of the wallpaper
It was an Allen & Roth paper from Lowe’s and was reasonably priced at 20 dollars a roll. I think it is called Spanish Tile. Once all the paper was up I hung up most of my old pictures and hung up my old ironstone that I had up at first but then took down later. I’m holding off on hanging the black and white Life Magazine photos I had around the desk because I might want to do something else and hanging pictures on wallpaper is a big commitment.
Sorry about the grainy pictures. I’m using my phone. I’m really hoping Santa brings me a camera this year- Santa are you listening?
