It turned out that wallpapering is expensive, so I opted for our smallest room (at the time), which was our hall bathroom. Our smallest room now is our hall closet, which has been upgraded to a room since it has been transformed into glamourcave.
We got the wallpaper at Clarence House, on major sale, thanks to our friend Beck, who worked there at the time. I think it was about $80 for enough to cover the bathroom, which was two small walls, which also had a door, and another $300 (ouch, compared to painting) for it to be installed. Aaron managed everything about the installation, unprompted, which was random and amazing.
For those local readers who like details, we went with Wall Decor LLC for the installation, and had a great experience.
This was the wallpaper, in full on natural lighting.
And I can't find the one picture of the bathroom pre-wallpaper, maddening, so you'll just have to see the final result.
Note, the change in lighting, we're using Thomas Edison yellow bulbs.
Also, forgive me for the ridiculous framing of these pictures. This bathroom is very, very small, and my camera almost fits in it.
Fun fact, the door paint is actually chalkboard paint, which I had specially mixed. I figured, one day, one day when I was less lazy, I would get chalk, and write ironic things on the door, for guests to laugh at.
In general, big progress in the bathroom. I mean, it dosen't take much to decorate a bathroom. It's all there to begin with, just grab the toilet paper.
False. Bathrooms are goldmines of unrealized decorating opportunities and this one is begging for love.
- A floor lamp.
- An antique persian rug.
- Black and white gallery art in silver frames.
- A new industrial light fixture over the sink.
- A custom extra tall shower curtain, for which we already have the fabric, wee!
- A tuffet.
- A wet bar.
- Something to hold chalk.
- Something to clean chalk off.
In other news, we had left over wallpaper, which I creatively applied to the back of a cabinet in our hallway. A full post about it is here, but I took better pictures this morning and wanted to share.
Is that last picture a little imposing?
I think the wallpaper looks a little better in the natural light, which makes me want to adjust our lighting in the bathroom...
So what do you think of the wallpaper? Are you planning on wallpapering anything in your home?
