Living Room Progress

Living Room Progress
House progress is chugging along!  One of the biggest things that has gone unfinished since we moved in was our living room shelves.  I new I wanted to back them in wallpaper, but the paper I had originally decided on was going to end up being WAY out of our budget.  After a couple months of searching and some serious indecisiveness, I finally found this one!

I was also delusional enough in the beginning to think I was going to tackle this project myself.  I'm SO GLAD we hired a professional for this.  It looks so good and I'm pretty sure I would have either ruined a bunch of the paper, or I never would have actually gotten around to it.

I have big plans for this space.  We have a carpenter building a window seat for our bay window and I'm still hunting for the perfect chairs to finish up our seating.  For now, I'm off to find my boxes of knick-knacks so I can style these shelves properly!

Happy Monday, friends!

    1. Yes! Committing to pink was a little scary for me at first, but I'm SO glad I did!

  14. I don't know what kind of chairs you are looking for - but World Market has a TON of furniture on sale and they always have bold and quirky options!

  15. This looks so great! My boyfriend and I might be buying a house (haven't heard back from the seller yet) that has a beautiful fireplace with shelving on both sides. I was thinking of putting up a fun wallpaper like this to the wall over the fireplace. I just love how it turned out!

  16. They are so gorgeous! Light but with character. I love that you got a professional to do it - I started to believe that you were super human and would tackle any project on your own.
