Well here we finally are….yes I have been decorating my bedroom now since January…It’s taken me an age, because someday’s I have been too busy, someday’s I have been too tired and someday’s I just couldn’t be bothered…but at last I can now show you the pictures of the finished result!
I had been looking for the perfect wallpaper for a while, usually I like plain white walls but I wanted to try something a bit different for a change…so when I saw this Peeling Planks wallpaper by Clarke and Clarke I just had to have it!
This bedroom is to be my very own, as now we have all changed again and my Hubby has his artist studio and bed in the dining room…the actual moving of furniture all about the place has really worn me out…I think that is why it has taken me so long to decorate the bedroom, It’s like I have moved house…only we are still living in it!
I wasn’t sure how the wallpaper was going to match up with my kind of decor, as the limited pictures that were about at the time, just featured plain furnishings! but you know lil ‘ole me…I like a challenge and I went for it anyway!
I also hung the wallpaper horizontal rather than verticle, as I like the beach hut feel to it. This is my first attempt at wallpapering a whole room and although it was challenging, (there are lots of mistakes! don’t look too hard!) I did it, so if you are thinking of wallpapering yourselves, try it! If I can do it, I am sure you can too!
My next room to decorate will be the spare bedroom, I have bought lots of things for it, and have it all planned out in my head…I am aiming for a guest/craft room style in there…thing is I have put so many unwanted things in there, I’m going to have to clear it all before I begin…but i will keep you posted.
PS…if you are thinking of buying this wallpaper, it is not as brown as it looks in some of the pictures, …my photo editing suite insisted on bringing out the brown more, instead of the lovely pale blues in some of the pictures…best colour representation is pic2, pic4 and pic6.
Have you been decorating lately? and if so what room have you been decorating?Have you tried wallpapering? how did it go?
Bye for now
