in my home already but I couldn't take the credit for hanging it. (Thanks Stephane and Aunt Marilyn!) This time, I wanted to do it on my own.
Unfortunately two things went wrong:
#1 I had no idea how to wallpaper and it showed.
#2 I never liked the pattern of the paper from day one. I got it from a $5 bin and couldn't pass up the deal. Lesson learned!
As a result, my tiny little front entryway, which could be oh so cute, became what I saw as the blemish of the main floor. Here are a couple of shots of the little room. I did the wainscoting all by myself, I might add. toot toot! :)
Well, long story short, I decided this was the weekend to start a little makeover in that room. Luckily, I had a couple of helpers.
Off came the wallpaper. An annoying job yet somehow therapeutic once you get going!
Up went a coat rack, minus the hooks, with whatever pieces Steph could drum up in the basement.
A little Saturday shopping excursion to the antique shops proved fruitful. We picked up a little piano bench which will fit perfectly. Plus, the lid lifts up for hat and mitten storage. Bonus!
