Good Morning everyone!
This is the fourth week of the six weeks challenge over at Calling It Home
Well, I think we have finally made some progress on the bedroom/nursery.
This week we hung the wallpaper (yeah!).
Oh my goodness - this was the EASIEST wallpaper I have EVER hung.
I can't believe we put off doing this for weeks thinking it was going to be difficult.
If you are looking for a bead board look and don't have the tools
or the ability to put up "real" bead board
I would recommend this wallpaper.
It gives the exact same look and
is WAY easier to do.
Plus, it looks FABULOUS!
Now, we need to get the chair rail and paint.
However, the paper needs to sit for several days before we paint
to make sure it is really dry.
I hope to do that this weekend -
maybe Sunday afternoon?
We shall see.
We have also been working on the windows.
Remember that material I ordered on OnLineFabrics.com?
Well, look what we did with it.
I still want to find some curtain panels
but so far I haven't been able to find what I want.
I might not be able to find them
before the end of the challenge - but I'm going to try.
If not, the shears looks okay for now.
That is something else we will just have to "wing".
Dan even made them with a shelf so I can decorate
on top when we get to the decorating stage of the room.
Don't you just love Nemo?
(I'll post a tutorial on how we did the valances
in a future post.)
So, that's what we have been doing this week.
I finally feel like we got something accomplished
this week after several weeks of
Now, we're off to Lowe's to get the paint, chair rail, and some flowers for outside.
Have a super week!
