If you’ve been following my blog for a long time, I’m talking back on my first blog, so a really long time, you would know that redecorating my bedroom is something that I’ve wanted to do forever! It all started by wanting to redo my bedroom at my parents house but then I ended up moving in with my Grandparents, and since I’ve been officially living with them for awhile, I decided that I wanted to paint my room at their house! I began searching Pinterest like crazy, trying to find the perfect bedroom style. I really had no idea what I wanted to do!
I knew for sure that I wanted to somehow get rid of that ugly yellow wallpaper. I’ve hated that wallpaper for YEARS! No offense if yellow wallpaper with mini pastel flowers is your thing, it’s just not my cup of tea. I ended up going with a super pretty grey, Pebble Grey to be exact. This color is perfect because it’s not too dark. My bedroom is kind of small, so this works out perfectly and actually makes the room feel bigger. The tricky part was going to be to figure out if we (my Grandma and I) should remove the wallpaper or just go ahead and paint. We ended up just painting over the wallpaper because it was super smooth. I don’t necessarily reccomened that you try painting over wallpaper, and if you do try it and it doesn’t work out as good as it did for me, don’t hate me. I didn’t say you should try it!
In the picture below, you can see a picture of the ugly wallpaper. Now, I wouldn’t recommend that you paint over wallpaper, it honestly just depends on the wallpaper. In my room, the wallpaper was very smooth, no bubbles anywhere and no tearing in the paper. The wallpaper was also a light color, and we were painting it a darker color so that helped too. Normally, you should take the wallpaper off before painting though.
The picture below was taken back in Decemeber. Don’t worry, I’ve taken my Christmas tree down now. 😜
I will definitely keep you guys updated on my bedroom makeover process! I think this would be a fun little blog series. Also, I need ideas for what to hang above the bed. A little shelf? A picture? Give me some ideas please!
Hope you guys have a great Wednesday!
