Stripping Wallpaper...ugh!!


Hey guys, guess what project I started yesterday since we had a virtual monsoon here in Charlotte and everything I had planned for the day was cancelled.

I know, I's hideous!  Mustard colored faux sponge painted wallpaper... don't judge cuz we didn't hang it!  However we did manage to buy a house with it :o  Funny but I thought it would be one of the first projects we'd tackle, but it ended up being our last downstairs at least.  And the border, I absolutely loathe wallpaper borders...the reason is they make ceilings look shorter.  Think about it, that horizontal line visually shortens the height of a ceiling.  Total insanity!

A year ago I used Grass Cloth for a client in their downstairs half bath, and the results were Amazing.  Needless to say I've been wanting to do the same for our 1/2 bath ever since.  So Grass Cloth it is, here are a few inspiration photos...

Alrighty, I'll keep you posted with this project. The hubby doesn't know it yet, but he's taking the lead on this one.  What can I say...he wallpapered our dining room 15 years ago and did an awesome job!  Some things a girl never forgets ;)
OMG is it Thursday already?  This week has flown by!  Well Frugalicious Friday is ON tomorrow and we've got another great Giveaway.  So check back and don't forget to link up!

    I am becoming the queen of wallpaper stripping over here. I'm half done 4 out of 8 rooms down!

    My latest down our the roses and seashells we had in our bedroom. (Yes, the roses and sea shells together on the same paper.)

    I would love if you stopped by my blog. (I promise I won't try to sell you any generic viagra, like your last commenter. :))

    Thanks for sharing,
