wallpapered



We got the wallpaper up! It took a few hours and my arms are sore, but it wasn't too bad. I had wanted blue toile wallpaper as seen in the Domino feature on Blonde Redhead, but I couldn't find any that I could afford ($200 for one wall in a rented apartment is impossible). I also thought something chinoiserie-like would be good, and was pleased when I found this particular wallpaper on clearance. It's on one wall of the dining room -- it's so much more cozy in there now.

  12. Yay! I'm so glad everyone likes this! It was tiring but not as difficult as we were expecting. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone thinking of trying it to dive right in.

    Here's another photo that I took of the room in the early evening.
