I'm back from Austin and ready to get you up to speed on some of my projects I attempted while I was out there.
First of all, I completely take back what I said in this post, about being able to cut and paste wallpaper onto a wall. I thought it would be easy peasy. I was wrong. And I don't admit that often.
It may not have been easy, and it definitely made me worried before the end that it would turn out horribly, but I have to say, I am completely impressed with the end results.
Remember my ugly yellow dining room? Honestly, it's not that ugly, I just don't like yellow.
The finished product with a chair rail above it. That chair rail was another issue all together. I bought two long pieces and brought them home with a plastic miter box and back saw I had picked up at Home Depot, but realized I couldn't cut them myself. I re-bought the chair rail at Lowe's, but had a lumber guy cut it down for me. The cuts weren't perfect, and didn't have them cut on angles so they would fit together, but I made it work. Just don't look too closely haha
Please excuse the ceiling edges that still need paint, I ran out. I'll finish that when I head back to Austin, permanently, in a few weeks. Also, I love my new couch.
