Hoorah! I made it to the finish line of the six week One Room Challenge. I was able to completely finish the project on time, even though it was just a couple of hours before we were hosting a party for 50 people at our house!
To say that I am tickled pink with the results would be an understatement! Let’s review what it looked like before.
I don’t switch things up very often and after nearly 30 years I have finally tired of this look. The first step, and by far the most tedious and time consuming was removing the old wallpaper.
A considerable amount of time was spent prepping the walls with spackling and a fresh coat of paint before I applied the P Kauffman “Malawi” fabric to the walls for wallpaper.
I used wallpaper paste to apply the fabric to the walls just as I would wallpaper. I painted the walls behind the fabric and below the chair rail with Valspar “Pam’s Lace.”
I switched out the brass chandelier for this crystal one and gave the mirror a fresh coat of Liquid Gold.
I also made new silk window treatments and covered the chair seats in a beautiful velvet.
I am so pleased with the results! I hope you will click over to Calling It Home to the other projects.
