Happy Monday! ugh....I am beginning to not like mondays much....But I am glad I was semi productive over the weekend and now I get to brag about it!
So I couldn't sleep this morning, and was checking out all the cool little parties, follower appreciation thingies, and giveaways. And I decided I wanted to join in. So I am linking up to quite a few....This should be fun!
Well here is my before and after to brag about... Update on Brody's room: finished the bead board wallpaper, added some chair rail and trim.
Please excuse the mess...we just moved in...and the room is soooooo small I cant get the whole thing in on shot :(
So I used a level to mark a straight line, then taped it off....and started to paint. I misplaced the swatch so not sure on the exact name of the paint color....but pretty much lime green. I think it was about $10 for a quart at Home Depot.
Beadboard wallpaper $14 a roll. I used 1 1/2 rolls...enough left to do the bathrooms.
For the chair rail, I went a little higher up the wall than normal, with hopes of making the room seem a bit larger, I think it worked? We used this foamy molding,super easy to cut and very bendy. I found it at Home Depot $5 for 8ft peice, we needed about 5 peices.
And 1 inch trim molding in the same material to cover all the seams...approx 24" apart. Along this wall the long wall, Hubby added a 1x6 shelf/ledge so I can put up "stuff" yeah haven't got that far...but yeah stuff.
This whole project cost under $100...not bad considering the BIG difference it made
Here is a close-up...looks like the real thing, just spongy feeling. It was ok to hang... This was my first attempt, and random strips hung great. Then there were others that were literally peeling off in the corners, I used a little Elmers glue, and applied it with a sponge....it worked. And I will attempt it again!
