Operation Bedroom Re-decoration...

Okay, Stage One is complete!

That's right, my wonderful husband and I managed to hang a whole wall of wallpaper by ourselves. No help what-so-ever, having never done it before in our lives!

And I must say, I'm pretty impressed by our efforts. Extremely S-O-R-E! but happy non-the-less!

Here's what the bedroom wall looked like before (with horrible peach paint, cobwebs and all!)

and here's how it looks now, with the wallpaper hung and waiting to be painted...
We'll be painting over the wallpaper in a really nice 'Forest Green'. I'd show you a pick, but the test spot I did on the wall doesn't come up very well in pics so you'll have to see it when it's finished.

Here's a close-up of the texture on the wallpaper...


So, what do you think? I can't wait to paint it now, so exciting!!!

  2. Yeah, I'm really excited about painting it now! We were a little worried at first, after we first put it up, but now that it's all dry and looking like it's going to stay up and all air bubbles are out I'm really confident!
