So in the middle of doing a New Screen Porch Addition---
I decide it would be fun to redo the front entry.
Yes, I might be a little nuts...
But I found this paper that matches my Table Chandelier perfectly!
And it was ON SALE... majorly on sale... for $11 a roll.
It was destiny I tell you...
Light and bright... and pretty... and cottage....
Lets take a closer look!
You might remember last month I found this wonderful birdcage.
I had it in the kitchen for a bit... but it was too large for the space it was in.
My lamp is over 4 ft tall.. and it makes everything look tiny.
So the birdcage is a good balance here.
I had live plants on this dresser, but decided it was too nice to risk water damage.
The faux blooms look good... even when I forget to water in the summer!
I am going to tell you a little secret... I 'bout did myself in with this project.
The angles and height was difficult... but the paper had a very weird overlapping match to it.
I would start out good then somewhere it would be off just a bit...
Drove me nuts!
(Hopefully there is enough going on you don't notice my mistakes.)
I love the color and how it has bits of cream, gold, white, blue and aqua.
My old antique gold mirror is a keeper... love this style.
I did the picture garland before Christmas and have never taken it down.
I added a bit of Spring with the blue flower.
Bits of this and that... burlap and lace... they make me happy.
I love that the birdhouse is seen so well here.
Up high you missed the wonderful, chippy patina.
I love the new look.
Very vintage, cottage, cute...
very much how I want this house to look.
I hope you do too!
The pattern is Beverly Wallpaper: Midnight Damask - NT33747
But like I said, I found mine on the clearance isle!
