Well, this is the point where I’m mildly panicking I won’t finish my first ORC. Eeeeek! We’ve made some amazing progress, especially the husband’s contribution with the woodworking, but I’m still behind. Last week I skipped an update due to just not wanting to turn on computer. Truth. But this week I’m back with a sneak peek of the big reveal.
We installed the molding, finished painting, and wrapped up the wallpaper installation. If you take anything away from this project, I hope it’s this – removable wallpaper is AMAZING. Trust me, I was a non-believer. I planned on trying the removable wallpaper but in the back of my mind I was prepared for it not to work. I am as shocked as anyone that I fell in love with it!
It was so easy to install even with three kids running around. I didn’t buy a fancy tool to smooth it out and just used my hands. A few times I had to remove it and re-position the wallpaper with no issues. I worried it would rip or get tangled up – no problems at all. I went with the wallpaper below from Target because, hello, who doesn’t love Target?! It only took one roll of paper to do the entire project. At $29.99 a roll that’s an impressive return on investment considering how much it makes the faux mudroom pop. The only negative to using the wallpaper? I now want to put wallpaper on everything.
I’m excited for next week’s big reveal. Fingers (and toes!) crossed I pull off the big finish in time. Happy Thursday!
