So guess what I did this afternoon? I finally wallpapered this back wall of our kitchen. Since Day One, I've felt it should have wallpaper and I've imagined 50 different prints inside my head. I think I decided on just the perfect one--I am loving the change!





I'll also add wallpaper along the top of the pantry doors in the photo, above, but that's for another day. It took me around 3 hours just to paper this small wall and I'm wilting. (Not as young as I used to be, and all that.) I highly recommend plaid wallpaper, though, especially if you are a beginner because oh! All those straight lines to cut along--so easy!

I love plaid - what a great idea. Now if I could just get up MY courage.

Your kitchen has been transformed, Debra!

We had plaid wallpaper in our last kitchen. One thing I wish we could have taken with us. Very vintage looking. But, it's time for change.., someday...

Oh Debra this is a cute as can be! Your kitchen is adorable already and this wallpaper just "pops"! It looks super.

I enjoy wallpapering (don't get to do much of it), but it always requires more paper than I calculate.

It looks great! I haven't heard of the show you were talking about in the last post. You've got me curious. :)
