Greta’s room is all wallpapered and my heart is melting!!!! And she won’t stop screaming! She LOVES IT!
It was a little process to get to this point–deciding on the wallpaper and whether or not to wallpaper the slant part of the ceiling or not (so glad we did!) And then smoothing out the texture on said slant. And then finally wallpaper (here’s the one we went with)! We decided to hire out hanging the wallpaper because of the sheer scale of the room. Greta’s room is about 13×13 with 3 doors, a window and those slanted walls and we didn’t have a ton of spare time to tackle the project correctly. For reference, it took a professional 12 hours to hang this! (I feel like that means it probably would have taken us double!)
Finding someone to wallpaper took some doing, too. In the end, calling our local paint store did the trick! Sherwin Williams had a list of people in the area that did wallpaper and we called on it until we found someone. (Dynamic Painting for you locals).
The room is far from finished. In fact, I feel like we’re just getting started. The wallpaper is really just going to be a subtle background when we’re finished. The carpet, of course, is the next to go…
We went to Lowe’s to pick up some samples. We were specifically looking for the carpet we used in our last house (we loved the pattern so much!) but our Lowe’s stopped carrying the active family line. They did say we can still order it in so we might do that. But the samples we picked up are promising, too. And really, I mean, anything would be an improvement.
A few other items on our to-do list? We’re going to paint the wood trim and add art and some sconces and some more punchy bedding or pillows as soon as the red carpet is gone. I’m kind of to the point where I’m struggling to look past it anymore. Greta suggested tearing it out today and she’d walk on the subfloor until her new carpet got here–so I guess that means she’s over it, too. Ha!
