There were two walls in the house which had wallpaper on them. They are what I guess is call a “feature wall” effect, as the other three walls in each of the rooms is plain. Also I think it’s quite common here, as I’ve seen or been to a few homes with this big floral patterns on single wall. The one in the dining area is actually not bad with large, blue/green flowers. Plus it was hung property and neat.
This is the area where we have our dining table with a light blue/green polka dot oilcloth cover. The other lady, Nancy, actually used it as a second sitting area shown here.
Doing some research, I read the best way to remove it is with either with a combo of fabric softener with hot water or some chemical solution at the hardware store, which I bought.
The following photos have aspects of items that I’d like to incorporate in the room. Or at least I feel this way today. With Pinterest and the Internet, I just keep changing my mind with each nice color combo. Maebh requested pink stuff, then again, if I gave her a pink lamp, she’d be fine – she’s 3! I know that rooms look bigger when painted a light cream or ice blue color, so I’m really leaning towards a really light ice blue/aqua color with white trim.
I’m on the hunt for a double, pine wood bed frame which I will paint either a white or a pink color. There is a Jenny Lind bed from The Land of Nod which I absolutely love but not at $699!! At the same time, I wanted to paint her dressing table. So if I have a painted bed, then the dresser won’t also be bright pink too. See, so many choices! Also, while I wanted to keep them, the handles will need to be replaced as one broke in 1/2 during the move.
