another mass shooting

I was on my way to drop our kids off at school while listening to PBS when the reporter starts going into detail about the mass shooting that happened this past weekend in Alabama. I say out loud, "that is so sad and heartbreaking. Another mass shooting." 

guest half-bath refresh!

 If you follow me on TikTok or Instagram, then you know that I recently updated our guest half-bath at our entryway! 

It was quite the project because it involved a lot of wallpaper. Although I already have some experience with wallpaper there were a few challenging things about this space. First of all, I measured wrong and didn't account for the crooked nature of the walls in some areas. This affected the way that I cut the wallpaper and at one point I was so frustrated that I pulled an entire panel off. I had to steam my way to a bare wall and it was such a process, but thankfully it worked really well! That's when I realized that I wouldn't have enough wallpaper or just enough wallpaper. I took a short break to try and gather myself over the weekend, and then I realized that instead of painting the ceiling in a deep green, I could use that paint to make an accent wall. The color is 'Vintage Vogue' and it's by Benjamin Moore, even though I've been saying Behr-- whoops!

BEFORE: The space had great bones and I had always been obsessed with all of the brass fixtures and honed marble sink. However, it really felt bland and boring in here. Y'all know I love a bold room and that's when I began searching for wallpapers. 

Closet and bedroom refresh!
