Powder Room Mini Makeover

We've lived in our house a bit over a year now and the rooms are coming together, I'm figuring out where I want stuff, what I want to do, and how much money I want to spend.  I have this little 1/2 bath, or we could call it a powder room to sound extra crazy, off my mudroom and I really wanted to put bold wall paper in it.

I ordered some, it came wrinkled and the company told me it's a common problem.  I ordered some more, it was old school paper that I had to paste myself; not having that. I found some more I liked; it cost $400 for one 5x10 wall--not happening.  So in the meantime while I hunt down something I love and basically puts itself up I ordered some removable decals from Etsy for about $30.

Before………oh so inspiring.


Going up--it literally took me about 20 minutes.  I'd step back after a few, fix crooked ones, change the places of a few to fill in gaps, and not lose it (which I'm sure would have happened with wall-paper).


After.  It's a pretty simple transformation, and will do just fine for a while.
Also--it's really hard to take nice pictures when a toilet is involved.

  1. So cute!!! ... and I love that you eyeballed the hanging process. I eyeball everything I hang or draw on our walls and it makes my husband cringe because he wants me to let him measure and level, blah blah blah. In the end he always agree I got it right. =) And this looks great and so fun and such a modern update! Good job.

    1. I think maybe our husbands are the same person then Andrea! :) I cringe when the level comes out and instantly know, "Great--this project is going to take 5x's longer than it needs to. I knew I should have done this while he was at work." He did tell me that I did a great job on this one….even without his level.
