Wallpapering...has anyone tried solo?

I have wallpapered twice in my entire life.
Once was with my sisters when we did a feature wall for our shop.
The second was a few weeks ago when I decided to redo my daughters room.
Not sure there will a 3rd!
But I am so happy with the result.
I bought the wallpaper from PIP Home online. It's such a lovely print.
The bedside lamp was from an op shop for $1.
I got the side table for $29 & painted it with some left over pink paint.
I also hung a hoola hoop on the wall along with some rose fairy lights.
Have a great weekend.


  1. What a happy, bright print!. Once again u amaze me w/your luck at finding things!.

  4. I have tried it a couple times. Not hard really. Love the pattern on this one. A dollar lamp, yay!

  5. Wow that room looks like it's where dreams are made. How pretty! And that lamp is totally gorgeous. I almost fell over when I read you paid $1 for it.

    BUT we all have to do what we can do! You do what you can...and if that means a bog every once in a while! Well thats better than you leaving!
    Best wishes for you!
