Thank heavens things are looking up and we have something pretty to show you this week. You have got to see our bold floral blue and white removable wallpaper!
Friends, we feel so much better this week! We cannot thank you enough for your encouragement and well wishes last week when we shared with you how many things weren’t going our way. If you missed that post you can catch up HERE and Week 1 HERE. This week we accomplished so much that it boosted our energy and confidence. Before we get too far ahead with our bold floral blue and white removable wallpaper – let’s remind you of a few things!
If you are not familiar with the One Room Challenge™ this is how it works. It was created by Linda of Calling it Home several years ago and it has mushroomed into the fabulous bi-annual challenge that it currently is.
Within the next few weeks we will completely makeover one room from top to bottom. Every Thursday we will give you a progress report and let you know how we are doing. You will not only get to see our progress updates, but of lots of other designers as well! On May 10th we will all have the big reveal of our magnificently completed spaces. The featured designers post on Wednesdays and design bloggers like us will post on Thursdays.
Also we are thrilled and fortunate that Media Partner House Beautiful is a sponsor of this challenge.
Remember last week when we were so worried when the wallpaper was delivered in the rain like this? It was damaged during delivery – not the sender’s fault.
We are thrilled to report that there was no damage at all to the wallpaper. Completely dry and all sheets were perfectly intact. Whew! Also – super excited that Jenn was able to spend the day Saturday rescuing her mama. Jenn 100% completely did all of the hanging of this gorgeous wallpaper. Vicki moved the ladder, step ladder, rolled down the paper, etc. You know, played a fabulous Vanna White.
Bold and Beautiful
Is this gorgeous or what? Late one night browsing through removable wallpaper photos online, I came to a screeching halt when I spotted this beauty. Instantly I knew that this was the one that I had to have for the bathroom makeover.
Immediately I reached out to the Etsy shop owner and asked questions. Even though it was late at night, my questions were answered quickly. I placed my order and received the paper within just a few days time. This fabulous paper is from uniQstiQ and their Etsy shop is filled with gorgeous designs. You can even create your own. They are graciously offering our readers a 20% discount until the end of 2018! Just use the coupon code 2BEESINAPOD when you check out!
The paper is very thick – like vinyl. It came with great hanging instructions and a thick paper backing that Jenn would roll down the back inch by inch as she placed the paper on the bathroom wall. The great thing about this paper is that you can readjust it – seriously…like pick it up and move it! And it sticks beautifully!
Now the garish tile and countertop stand out even more. With the bright white of the painted walls and the brightness of the wallpaper these two things definitely need to be changed – STAT! How about the sneak peek of the painted vanity?!
Through the magic of editing, this is what this area would look like with a pure white countertop. I’m not giving up or admitting defeat yet. There has to be an economical solution out there and I am determined to find it – hopefully in time!
So – a lot of big things did get crossed off the list this week. But I have a long way to go! Now I’m ready to start painting those tiles! In the meantime I am loving my Bold Floral Blue and White Removable Wallpaper! Don’t forget to visit uniQstiQ and use the 20% coupon code.
