Finally, the day has arrived…the day you’ve been waiting for…for over a year.
The original post about my laundry room decision was in May of 2013. Aren’t I amazing? Don’t I knock your socks off with my fast-moving and decisive decorating changes?
Many of you offered wonderful (and varied) advice about the wallpaper decision. I’d planned to take the summer to decide, with the goal of completing the project by early Fall last year.
You know how it is with time, though…it marches on…and you look back, and gasp!
Last month, I gave you the pitiful update…no decision about my laundry room wallpaper.
Before the June post, I began working on a few things to incorporate into the laundry room decor. I was beginning to get a mental picture of the look I wanted.
You’ve seen a couple of things recently that will be in the reveal of the entire room – coming soon.
Are you ready for the wallpaper reveal?
I hope so! I’m holding my breath, hoping you like the new look! Here goes…
What do you think? You may be wondering, “What’s so vintage about that?”
The planned vintage item to hang on this wall was too busy with the wallpaper. So, I dug through my platter cabinet and found this one that PAM (Painter Artist Mom) gave me a few years ago. Thank you, PAM!
I used the same curtain rod brackets that PAM used for hanging the heavy platter at her house. (Yes, curtain rod brackets work great for this!) They’re brass, but I decided not to
fuss about paint them. Brass is back in, you know.
Do you remember how this wall looked originally?
A visit to the
attic danger zone above the garage produced some chair rail molding I removed from Spunky Daughter’s room five or six years ago.
I made miter cuts to four pieces, and HH installed them quickly with a power nail gun.
HH soon got busy caulking and filling nail holes.
After a little sanding and painting, the wall was ready for wallpaper. (See the wallpapering tutorial here.)
I’ll show you the remainder of the laundry room vintage decor soon, too.
Before you leave today, here’s a peak at the wall from just inside the kitchen door.
I’m pleased with the wallpaper accent wall. An entire wall (or room) of the pattern would be far too much busyness going on. To see the remainder of the laundry room, visit Laundry Room Essentials – Vintage Inspired.
How do you feel about wallpaper? Have I sold you on the idea of adding your favorite paper to an accent wall, maybe inside a border of molding?
