I talked about dreadfully removing the wallpaper here. So, here it is after the butterflies and flowers were pretty much gone:
Next on the list was texturing. As I've shared with people about texturing this room, some of them have been absolutely amazed. Although I could've totally let them believe that texturing truly is an extremely difficult task that involves an abundance of creativity and skill, I went ahead and told them the truth. Which is this: anybody can texture. I've textured a few walls in my lifetime and even though I think I've gotten a better idea of how to achieve the results and the look I like, it's always been easy. So, if you're on the fence about texturing something or paying someone to do it, save yourself a couple bucks and just do it yourself. It's not bad. And it makes you feel kind of artsy fartsy like a painter or something.
Here it is with the texture:
And now the paint:
It may seem like a total yawn fest because there is zero color, but I plan on fixing that. I'd like to throw in some accent pieces (frames, bath mats, etc.) to liven the place up a bit and add some color. I'd also love to eventually stain the wood a richer color, replace the faucet/shower head, have a normal place/way to hang our towels, and fix the drawer on the vanity. It's a work in progress, but I sure am glad to have clean, white walls.
What a change! I think it's the perfect blank palette :) And you definitely have one up on me - I've never textured before!ReplyDelete
Well, thanks! Can't wait to spruce it up!Delete
