We have crossed off most of our list in this room. We have three things left, curtains, colorful accent pillows and purchasing a live plant. Curtains are going to be the tough one. You can read more about what I am thinking for curtains here.
We have the new rug, purchased lamps, accessorized the bookshelves, wallpapered the bookshelves and added art to the mantle. We're on a roll!
Here is how I did the bookcases.
I measured each bookcase by width and height. You would think that I could've just done this with one cut. However, the wallpaper we purchased was 29" wide, not wide enough for the bookcase which was 30.5". Therefore, I had to cut the wallpaper for each shelf.
After cutting the wallpaper, I pasted the it with wallpaper boarder paste purchased from Sherwin Williams.
Slowly the bookcase started taking on a different look. #wallpaperismessy
It really draws your eye to the mantel and brings everything in this very large room down to eye level. I love the faux succulant plants that are on the mantel, they bring more green in the room and pair nicely with the artwork.
We are in our happy place.
