One Room Challenge (Dining Room) - Week 3


Week THREE! I can't believe we are at the halfway point of the challenge already! This week has been a real game changer for the dining room.  The accent wall went up and it is AMAZING! I have to give a huge thank you to WallPops for partnering with me on the wallpaper. It is exactly...actually even better....than what I imagined for the wall!!

 This is the NuWallpaper from WallPops! You may remember I have used their removable wall decals in my youngest daughters room as well as the play area in the loft.  This wallpaper was so easy to install! I actually did the whole wall (10ft ceilings and all) by myself! 

This gorgeous blue patterned paper is the "Kensington Damask Paper"
Find the wallpaper here.....Kensington Wallpaper




To install the paper I started on the upper left side. As the roll drops you just smooth out the paper and lightly pull the backing down.


To smooth out and ensure I left no air bubbles I used a very high end tool...our community pool pass! LOL.  Seriously, any plastic credit card will do the trick.  No fancy tools needed.




In this last picture you can see the paper over our baseboards.  At this point I slid the card over the baseboard crease to form a nice indent.  Then you need to use a razor box cutter and go over the crease.

Easy Peasy People!! After the first row was finished I got back on the ladder and worked on the second row...and so on.  The most difficult part was cutting around the one window in the wall but honestly that wasn't too difficult either. 




And just like that this week the dining room took on a WHOLE new gorgeous look! 


I had my husband help hang up the Lenda curtains from IKEA this week as well.  
You like that little fiddle leaf?! Me TOO!! All those details will be up next week...this was just a little tease :)


XOXO

Our Master Bedroom Flooring

Last night as I was showing a neighbor around the house (for a girls wine night..how fun right?!!) I realized that I hadn't shared our master flooring and office flooring!! You guys this floor was literally a STEAL! Every single person that has come to see the new house LOVES these floors!

Okay, so back to the beginning... when we were picking out the carpet for upstairs my husband and I both decided we didn't want the master bedroom to get new carpet.  It is the only bedroom on the first floor and the entire rest of the house already had tile.  I personally did not want wood tile in the bedroom just because I felt the need for something "softer".  Getting new hardwoods wasn't exactly in the budget so we decided to check out laminates.  Now, let me start by saying I have never liked laminate. You all know as soon as we buy fixer upper properties we ALWAYS rip out the laminate.  I just think it looks cheap.  Well...I was so impressed with all the laminate floors th…

One Room Challenge (Week 6) Dining Room REVEAL

It's week SIX! Our dining room is officially done and the One Room Challenge has come to an end...
Check out all the ORC reveals here....Guest Participants Before I get into all the pictures I want to thank my partners on this project! Without them this room would never have come together as it did!  So a BIG "thank you" to 
Lexmod Furniture WallPops Bealls Outlet
Lets start off by taking a look back six weeks at the dining room "Before".


The room sat pretty empty for a few months after we moved in but now it is anything but empty! 
She's all DONE!



When I come down the stairs now I can't help but love my new view! I am so happy I went with the side accent wall and not the wall opposite the window!  I think it makes the room feel bigger.

Our newest addition (Blue Rug Obsession)

Good Morning Friends!  Over break we added another BLU-tiful rug to the household.   In case you haven't noticed blue is kind of the running theme in this house (Our Coastal Craftsman) and I can't seem to get enough.  The kitchen needed a runner but I couldn't find one that was the exact length I wanted so instead I ordered a 3x5 rug.  This post contains affiliate links provided by Wayfair.
When you walk in my house you see the dining room rug (Link to buy dining room rug HERE ) and it has so many beautiful colors and keeps the room feeling light and bright.  The kitchen has a lot of light too but I didn't want something AS light just because I knew it would get a lot of traffic/ and or kitchen accidents.  



I almost went with the blue family room rug because FOR REAL it is SO gorgeous and SO soft (Link to buy family room rug HERE ) but I knew I wanted to make sure I had some aqua and just different shades of blue really to play with in the kitchen) 



So when I found th…
