Woo Hoo! It’s Friday! And you know what that means? It means it’s time for One Room At A Time – Friday update! I am so here for it.
Last week was so busy that I wasn’t sure I’d get much done.
Thanks goodness that the DIY Challenge was on Wednesday and the theme was home improvement or I might not have gotten my wallpaper up!
And let me tell you, my wallpaper was a game changer for me and my half bath!
In case you missed it, last Friday I shared my inspiration board with you.
You can see it here.
My plan was to have the old lighting removed and the new lighting put in.
Add wallpaper to the wall above the sink.
And anything else that was on my list that I could get done.
Before I could install the wallpaper, I had to put in the wiring for the new lighting.
Which was way more of a project than I had anticipated.
First we removed the old light fixture.
Then we ran the wiring for the sconces. ( This was the difficult part)
Once that was done we patched any holes.
Next, I had to remove the texture on the wall behind the sink so that the wallpaper would adhere correctly.
Thank goodness before I started sanding my life away Terrie came up with a better plan!
You can see it here.
Once I had filled in the texture I put a clear sealer over the smooth wall.
Next, it was time to wallpaper.
I chose this large patterned botanical print in a peel and stick paper.
This was my first time installing a peel and stick.
Let me tell you it was like wrestling a ten pound pig into a five pound sack!
Thank goodness I had a little help.
Installing the Sconces
Now I would have been happy just getting the lighting wired and the wallpaper up, however the Hubs decided to go ahead and install the sconces and hang the mirror.
And I am so glad that he did.
It made that wall come to life!
I cannot tell you how much I love this wall.
For the first time in the almost 3 years that we have been in this house I finally feel like this room is what I envisioned.
And it’s a great feeling!
We still have a lot to do and I’ll be sharing it all with you over the next week or so.
Be sure to check in often to see what new projects have been completed.
Until next time…
