Wallpaper . . .

For the past two days I have been wallpapering my daughter's room. I can't believe how easy it has been, other than it takes a lot of time. I have never wallpapered before! Can you believe it? I am 45 and have never wallpapered a room. It turned out really nice, although a little top heavy. The original wallpaper in the room would not come off without peeling off part of the sheetrock, so we just decided to paper over what we couldn't get off. I hope it all sticks!!! It was fun and her room looks like a young lady's room now instead of a little girl's room. It used to be pink with little flying fairies all over it. Now it is elegant with gold and blue and a beautiful border. I need to post some pics of it. Oh, the time, where does my time go?

Well, that's it for now. I am going to be posting new art soon. It is taking longer than I thought!

How cool is that, putting up the wallpaper yourself! My father always did that kind of stuff in our house when I was growing up, and the house always looked beautiful and new.
I've never had the nerve to do that myself. I'm so afraid I would end up wallpapering like Lucy and Ethel on I Love Lucy!
Congratulations! I hope you post pictures of the room, and can't wait to see your new art!
