Here’s the view of our yard earlier today.
Ho Ho Ho! Isn’t it beautiful though!? And, as with many of you……Baby It’s COLD outside!
So today was the perfect day for a little indoor mini project.
Boy has it come a looong way since back in the day when I used to sell it. And in a good way, I think. Now, instead of papering your entire home, it seems that people are using it to make a bold statement in one room or on one wall.
I just pinned the photo of this AMAZING wallpaper to my Pinterest board “Be Bold” last night. In following the link, I have found that it is by a French artist, but have been unable to locate the source for purchasing the paper. Then again, my internet has been spotty this afternoon, so I’ll keep trying. I can pretty much bet you that it is insanely expensive. It actually looks more like a mural. I don’t see any pattern repeat in the photo. Anywho…..I LOVE it. It is a perfect whimsical combination of chalk board art and nature!
Anthropology is selling this paper. Such an incredible likeness to old chippy ceiling tile. And it is indeed expensive at $350.00 a roll.
This is also from Anthro. I did find it in their wallpaper section, but if I read correctly, this is REAL wood? At least that’s what I understood. It is peel and stick. Again, awesome! I can think of so many places to use it.
Anywho……back to my project……my tiny little 70’s wet bar area, the one spot in my living room I am always trying to ignore, was in desperate need of new wallpaper.
Here are a couple of before pics.
Can you see the black toile?
And here it is now.
Love it! It is an “expanded vinyl” paper. Which means that it actually has a texture to the background, and the damask pattern also has a texture. My milk glass collection really pops now, and I love the white owl lamp that Heather so generously loaned me. All in all…..this project took the two of us about an hour. And what a huge difference it made.
If you are interested in this paper, you can find it here in OKC at Munger’s Paint and Wallpaper. And it is very affordable!
Have a wonderful weekend. And stay warm!
