You know that moment when you realise that you truly have done something amazing! Well this wall is it for me, I am serious when I say lovingly gazed upon it's beauty more than once a day since I did it. It's currently my favorite DIY project to date!
So here's the ugly old wall and so far I have white walled each room, but I wanted to try and push myself a bit. I had the beadboard wall paper, used in the kids room and my faux beadboard boxes. I told Julian my plan he wasn't convinced! (Hence why it's in the craft room)
I was a bit sick of plain white walls and wanted some colour but because of the poor lighting it would need to be in small doses. I chose red polka dot contact paper and put it at the top of the wall.
Then I spent an hour making my own DIY wall paper paste which cost nothing to make but I was in such a rush I don't know where I got it from. I do remember my arms hurt like nothing else, from whisking it though!
Then a bit of molding trim I cut and painted it white. Oh yeah and I did right first time Suck on that Bob The Builder!!!
DIY Delight or Disaster? I am not kidding when I say I love this wall. I know it's really hard to see why from a photo but this wall in the flesh, it is beautiful. Every time I have tried to describe what I am doing I got the screwed up face. When Julian saw it finished he loved it. My Dad said "Brilliant!" and my Mum was impressed. None of them had looked convinced when I told them my plan. It truly is beautiful and to date it is my favorite project!
Okay what's your verdict, if you hate it well.....I still love it!!!!
