Faux Wood Wallpaper
Chace's bedroom makeover is coming along slowly but surely. Recently we completed a key element of his room - the faux wood wallpaper! If you are new to this discussion, feel free to get caught up here where I went over my vision for his room and shared all my ideas via the mood board below.
amazing faux wood wallpaper from Lowes and thought it would be the perfect addition to the modern farmhouse room that I wanted to create for my little guy. I planned on flipping it on its side though #horizontalforthewin
But let's back up. Just before we started the wallpaper, the room looked like this - pretty much how it looked when we moved in over a year earlier (what!?) except for the addition of the loft bed which we inherited from some friends (their little guy had become a big guy and outgrown it). I have plans to paint the bed as well (is nothing safe around me) and you can get an idea of my vision in the mood board above.
Anyway, on to what the room looked like before...
Poor kid. If Pepto-Bismal was blue, it would be this shade. Enough said. We didn't paint it this colour (to state the obvious).
It's been fun watching the cute teal dresser (which looked so perfect in Chace's last room) clash with the Pepto-
So, fast forward to me roping my dad into helping. Here he is in action.
Here is a close up of the wallpaper. It looks out of focus and blurry but it actually isn't. The wallpaper is done that way on purpose to add depth. If you run your hand across the wallpaper it actually has texture too so looks quite realistic in person. You can see the seam below as well if you look closely (just below the bottom of the middle 'plank') but in person it is pretty much invisible.
The room feels a lot brighter now with the addition of the light paint. Ignore the bed in the middle of the room, it was next on my hit list (paint!) so we left it there so I could work on it.
Chace loves it, and Chef Kev and I are smitten as well. Belle (the dog) could care less. We never consult her anyway.
Next up is:
- painting the bed
- installing a reading light
- getting a desk and chair
- putting up curtains and a curtain rod
- making that closet work
- art and accessories
- update the overhead light fixture
Still a ways to go but coming together. I've actually done a few of the above items already and hopefully can post them up soon!
