SWEET TEA

I'm not . . .

...a decorator.

        OR
...a home Blogger
        OR
...a photographer.

But I am decorating my house (we've lived here 6 months) and I am gonna blog about it now 'cause that's what I'm doing at this particular time in my life.  It's a lot of work but it's also a lot of fun.  I think I'm getting a lot of it right, but I've also made some mistakes.  "Ah hem", and I'll even show you those too.  Mistakes happen when you're not a professional.  Right?  Please say "yes".  Good and/or bad, home is my favorite place to be and I'm enjoying getting our new-to-us place in order.

This is our little guest piwder room "Before".
It had royal blue wallpaper with both an 8" top & middle border.  I managed to remove the borders myself (please be impressed because this was a LOT of work), but the background wallpaper wouldn't budge.  That's when I hired a professional to texture the wall (over the old wallpaper), so it would be ready for me to paint.




I was pleased with the results.
(Nary a hint of the old yukky wallpaper)
I love it when I get things right.

Wow! What a change. It's lovely. Love that soft blue, the white cabinet, starfish and beach picture. I can feel ocean breezes.

Your bathroom must have had a huge sigh of relief to have the wallpaper gone/painted over. Bathroom looks great, a good neutral base for adding colorful decorations.

Oh it looks so lovely - what a difference!! I didn't know you were also new in your home - I'm in mine 9 months now and I just felt 'settled' recently!

Looks great! That's exactly why I don't have wallpaper in my house. What a bear to get rid of!

I just removed wall paper in one of our bedrooms, so I know how much fun that is. NOT! I have priming to do and painting. Your bathroom looks very calm and peaceful, I love it. I look forward to seeing more of your decorating.

Love it! It's the look we're going to put in our small master bath...blue and white. I love those colors. It looks very fresh and pretty. I'll look forward to all the before and after posts!
