weekend wallpapering

I am massively in love with my newly wallpapered kitchen. This is something I have wanted to try for a long time but I have been a bit afraid to get started. I imagined that it would be very complicated. I worried that vintage wallpaper might not work with the wallpaper paste available these days. I worried that I would stuff it up and waste a beautiful roll of paper. In the end there was nothing to worry about!! I found some fantastic advise online via you tube tutorials and in particular this article here.

It has completely revitalized my love for my kitchen space and now I just want to wallpaper EVERYTHING!! I will be finishing this wall as soon as the next roll arrives in the post :) Next will be a single wall in each of our bedrooms and one in the bathroom.....

If you want to get your hands on some gorgeous paper, I found mine here or you could try out hannah's treasures or retro villa.

It did take a little bit of preparation and the small person did watch about three movies while I was preoccupied with my project. A spare pare of hands is helpful but not essential.

Best weekend ever!! Hooray!

  11. I am inlove with your newly wallpapered kitchen too! I'm glad you took the first step. I've been wanting to try it too but i'm also a bit scared. I have a question though, how long did it take you to do the wallpapering in the kitchen? What was the first thing you did?
