I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July!! I know we had a great time at my mom's on Monday. Lots of good food & family! :) It was a great day!!
We've been spending the days loafing about in our little pool. Today my niece aka Princess came over & swam with us. At first she was a little scared(this is like her third time in the pool) but by the end of the day she wasn't scared a bit! She was supposed to stay all night but at bedtime she decided she wanted to go back home so I ran her home ... I know she was worn out! Maybe she'll sleep in for my sis tomorrow! :)
I still haven't accomplished any crafty projects lately but I am thinking about redoing our bedroom. Last summer I had the same thought but never got around to it ~ but it's really driving me crazy!! My hubby doesn't understand why I want to change it (men NEVER understand!) ~ he says I'm the one who picked out the wallpaper ~ which is true & at the time I really thought I would like it but now I'm not overly amused. I finally got my dad to agree to let me paint the paneling (he's the landlord!) & now the hubby doesn't think I should!!!
Here's some pics I took last summer ~ let me know what you think I should do. I really want to redo the room - I have new decorations up now but I still dont' like the walls.
see the paneling behind the bed? & on the side wall?
close up of the paper - I like the background color ~ it's a soft yellowish tan
this is a portion of the floor to ceiling paneling ~ I couldn't get my original pic to load & the one I took tonight I had forgot to clean off my dresser ~ so I "edited" out all my junk!! lol
This section is like 5 feet long I'd say.
SO ~~ I need some opinions. Here's what I'm thinking about doing
a) Removing wallpaper - painting all the walls and paneling same color
b) Removing wallpaper -painting top of wall one color (tan maybe?) & painting paneling another color (perhaps off-white?!?)
c)Leaving wallpaper & just painting the paneling (again maybe off-white?!?)
d) Just leave it like it is
Whoever put the paneling up in our house really didn't have a plan I don't think. Every room except the bathroom has at least 1 wall with it on it -only the hallway is completely paneled & it's only like 2' x 10' maybe (it's tiny -we have a tiny house! lol) Our bedroom would've been so much better if they would've just put it on the bottom of the whole room. But no they put it on the bottom on 2 full walls -then 1/2 of another wall & finished that wall all the way to the ceiling?!?! Then started another wall with it to the ceiling (which is mostly covered by a closet but still!) I wouldn't mind the paneling so much if it seemed to have a rhyme/reason.
I need some help. B-A-D!!
Tell me what you think ~ honestly.
Thanks in advance for the help! Sorry this post wasn't anything too exciting! If I could ever decide what to do with my bedroom I might have some pics to share with you! lol
I hope everyone enjoys their Thursday!!
