Is it boring to put house projects in my blog? It’s kinda like art. I mean, a house IS really like a 30-year art project, right?
So here am I am with a bathroom that I don’t have the money to remodel. So I decided to flaunt the flaw as they say. I ordered this pattern ( appropriately named Golden Girls ) from a company in Boston—and yes, it’s made in the USA.
Now I’m pretty good with visual spacing, but there’s a lot more math that goes into wallpaper. Luckily this pattern repeats starting from the top and every other sheet you order is a twin, so two full sheets create the pattern and then it starts again.
The hardest part was aligning the two sheets. On a ladder. As the wallpaper stuck to itself. But just like the directions said, you could pull it apart. It was true!
My math turned out to be pretty close and I ended up with about 1/2 sheet more. I only had to get crafty in one little triangle space where I cut out a leaf to fit. And when it was all smoothed down I just used razor blades to trim. Go ahead. Say Rise Up Lights out loud.
