I must have been out of my mind!!
Did not take me long to remember why I gave up
Tedious hours and a sore neck,
but what the heck,
it is almost done, I am pleased.
I had previously decided to keep this border but after
much thought decided it too should be updated.
It really did not fit my vintage chippy white theme.
Guess I have been out of the loop,
did not know most DIY Stores no longer carry wallpaper.
I searched online but nothing caught my eye,
so thought why not paint over that border and create my own.
Remember....Faux painting...It all came back to me...
bottom edge of leaves was painted with a fine brush.
Many Sleepless Nights
I had several ideas spinning in my head,
what should I put on this vintage border.
I am really into silhouettes and sheet music
with children or vintage ladies would be nice.
Remembering my New Years Promise,
"Keep It Simple"
A Stencil, that would be simple...and
I love vintage paper, combine the two.
I found this vintage hand written song titled
Power of Song
I then put a brown filigree scroll on top of the graphic
and copied onto ivory parchment paper.
Scrappy tore the edges, I was ready to decoupage.
a little darker that I liked but would fix that later.
Decoupaged the graphics onto the swags in pairs.
OK, now it is starting to compliment by bead boards.
I tore some strips of words and decoupaged them
here and there and wherever,
looks like pealing wall paper LOL.
Fourth coat of paint....
hand painting the bottom edge of leaves in white.
Painted flat white
Sanded to distress
Old English to antique
Yes, I decided to cover the teal wallpaper with bead board!!!
Hopefully my makeover room will be soon completed,
so I have can get onto the fun part
Playing In The Woods
Sneak peak~~~Another project
ancient Ozark rocks
Got to love it when Mr B finally makes up his mind,
yes dear, this is the year we build our Ozark Cabin.
Now, right now,
got to peel those logs when the sap is rising...makes it easier.
Can't we finish my chippy white room first?
I must have been out of mind!!
To Be Continued......
