We unexpectedly got a new teenage family member, a foster daughter. We were planning to renovate the upstairs part of the house sometime this year but her arrival meant that our energy and financial priorities have shifted for a while. We scrambled to convert the study into a bedroom. Its a perfectly functional bedroom but as you can see from the bookcase, horribly bland. And we want pretty! Even if only for the interim until we get around to renovating.
Since I wasn't up to the task of painting, I thought I would try wallpaper. Fools rush in where angels fear to tread I realized this morning, with the paper already cut, when I finally watched a couple of tutorials. Wallpapering is fiddly and messy. Fortunately I inadvertently came up with a design that is dead easy to do. I assure you, it was pure luck.
