My First Beadboard Wallpaper Project....

Have you ever heard of beadboard wallpaper????

I hadn't either.

But when I did, I knew I just HAD to try it out.  I have always wanted beadboard in my childrens' bedrooms, but because of my lack of knowledge on how to use any kind of power tool, I could only enjoy beadboard in other peoples' houses.....

Until I heard about beadboard wallpaper.

Not just beadboard wallpaper, but PAINTABLE beadboard wallpaper!!!!
You can get it at Lowe's for about $15 a roll.

You hang it up like normal wallpaper....and once it's dry you can paint it any color you want!

 I wanted to try this out....I've never hung wallpaper before in my life, so I tried out a small space in my laundry room to see how it looked.

I LOVE the way it turned out....

I measured the wall and bought a piece of trim (and had the guy at Lowe's cut it for me, since I am not power-tool savy). I think the trim was around $5.

I also bought a few hooks for about $2 a piece....

For this project, I just threw a quick coat of white paint on it (even though it was already an off-white color, I wanted it to POP off the walls)

I also hung up this bulletin board for messages or notes...even though I haven't used it yet..

There's no room in my house for a mudroom (which I would LOVE to have), but this really helps keeps things neat and organized as we walk in and out of the house.

I am also using the wallpaper in Brooke's new shelves in her room....they are still not complete, but here's a peek at what they are looking like....(I painted these a chocolate brown)...

Hoping to show you her new shelves sometime later this week...

Have a great Monday!!!!!!!!!!!

I love this!! I want to put bead board for my backsplash in my kitchen but husband says it is VERY LOW on the Honey Do List. I think I can do this if I can find this wallpaper. That is wonderful. I love everything about this area. So nice and clean. Great job!!

Looks great. I have a roll of this sitting in my office but haven't worked up the nerve to use it yet.

Laura PARING DOWN said...

I love it. I'm planning to put some in the back of some shelving that I've installed in my water closet.

I'll be able to add some interest to the shelves for very little $$$.

Thanks!
Laura
