While the wallpaper is beautiful, I don't really feel it reflects my style anymore. I was so confident that I knew what my style was, then over time it changed. Or should I say evolved... I know now what I like and what I don't like and more importantly what fits into my home.
In the end sometimes you have to live with your mistakes! The wallpaper was not cheap, therefore is not coming down anytime soon. So that means I have to work with it.
It is not my favorite room in the house, but I like it all the same.
Here is the room before:
|I spot Daddy Clem doing a little measuring ;)|
Here it is with new paint and wallpaper.
And here it is now.. a work in progress. While mostly finished, the table is on loan from my dad (it's quite beautiful) and I really want/need new chairs. Something a little more modern, perhaps?
Wall paint: BM Wheeling Neutral in matte finish
Trim paint: ICI Natural White in semi-gloss finish
Light fixture: sears.com
Cabinet: painted by me
Mirror and Lamps: Winners
Curtains: Fabricville with an added bottom panel.. thanks aunt Marilyn:)
To do list:
- replace chairs
- paint back of cabinet (blue?)
- new mirror
- find or create a good centerpiece
- Just dreaming, but a banquette under the window...
