So now I'm going to show you the before and after photos. I feel a bit like I'm on an HGTV show--minus the talent and big budget, of course.
|Before. It took me a LONG time to remove that wallpaper.|
|After. The new color made the room seem so much larger and brighter. I bought the horse prints at a used theater prop store in New York for $35. Framing them was more than ten times that but it was worth every penny.|
|Before: Thankfully the previous owners opted not to wallpaper this room but covering the dark paint did require three coats of the new lighter color.|
|After: I have several of my mother's antiques in this room. |
|Before: I cursed every hour I spent stripping this wallpaper. They must have used epoxy to hang it. It was incredibly difficult to remove.|
|After: Less is definitely more.|
So stay tuned for the next episode of FGTV--the Farm and Garden channel--when I show you the finished half bath that had "WOOF WOOF" wallpaper and dog head knobs on the vanity!
