We've shared with you in the past our girls bedroom makeover Here
which we absolutely love, BUT we have a little secret.
A nice little picture on a blog offers the luxury of not telling the whole truth. There's a reaon you've only seen one side of this bedroom. Actually this whole house has lots of "secrets" that the camera doesn't show. :)
On the other end of this room was an awkward neglected little nook.
Determined to make something out of it,
we "borrowed" big sisters vanity who was away at college
and in under an hours time this side of the rooms cuteness factor went way up.
How'd we do it in under an hour!?
We found this Chasing Paper Peonies print
wallpaper that we thought would tie in perfectly with the gold theme we already had going on
on the other side of the room.
in under 15 minutes we had the wallpaper part done!
Peel + Stick = Love
Now all we had left to do was bring in the furniture and accessorize!
We're huge fans of Chasing Paper and their fun line of removable wallpapers.
As a renter, I can appreciate the possibilities this opens up to be able to personalize a space
and be able to remove it when needed.
No landlord consent needed!
As easy as it is to put up.....
even easier to take down.
no steaming, no scraping, no crying, no swearing!
It's a game changer people!
This adorable room is done by Anissa over at House Seven Blog using the gold peonies print.
We thought it would be fun to do a roundup of a few of the other patterns were loving over at
It's been a few months so if you missed it there... Welcome. So you don’t live in your dream home!? Very few of us do. So let’s go ahead and conquer those Dream Home Demons shall we!
They do nothing but rob us of the present!
Believe me, I know!
I’ve wasted way too many years in waiting.
So let’s quit the waiting and claim our victory with paint!
Lots and lots of paint!
For starters, you can check out our story of how Lizs’ family came to live at the farmhouse Here
We hope these Before and Afters inspire you to dig in and make your place you.
You won’t see any structural changes in any of these pictures. This home has been a rental for our family, so all changes we've made had to be purely aesthetic.
Just bring on the paint!
Lots and lots of paint! We realize all landlords may not be as easy to work with (as he's my Dad). but we hope this gives you some vision that change doesn't have to come at a high cost or overnight for that matter. It's a process. And as for those "Future Dream Home Demons" Kick them to the curb! They only cloud our vision for the present and now.
