Since the moment the first strip of wallpaper went up in the kitchen, I have wanted to share it with you. I did a sneaky peeky on instagram because I was so stinkin’ excited. I walk in the kitchen now and I ooze happy. Because it feels joyful. And that was what was lacking before. I loved the new paint, lighting, and china cabinet but I still wasn’t perma-smiling.
I am now. The ear-to-ear kind. But not like a creepy clown.
I just couldn’t get that cottage look that I wanted. It was elegant. It was pretty. It was still a kitchen with dark cabinets and one white china cabinet. Now, it has that New England flair that I was hoping for.
This wallpaper was super cheap. Like the cheapest wallpaper in the history of the universe. But because it didn’t cost much it didn’t go up particularly well. It was a beast. And I am extremely thankful that the professionals did it because they more than had their hands full.
So, the wallpaper saga was worth it for this room alone. Do you like it? Because I love it. Wait, I think I said that. A little rude, since this is my own house and all.
But I do. I really, really love it.
