Decking The Halls

I hope that everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving! We staid at home and enjoyed a quiet day. Not really much different from our normal Thanksgiving to be honest. I know that for some of you this year may have looked completely different but I hope that everyone found some joy in the day.

With Thanksgiving behind us it is time for decking the halls. I started a few weeks ago and have been dragging my feet to finish.

Laundry Room Makeover Part 3- Farmhouse Cottage Style

Today's post will bring y'all up to date on where I am at with our laundry room makeover. I will be honest I could have had this makeover completed earlier if I had just not dragged my feet. We thought that we were going to have issues with moving the washer and dryer down the wall. Our dryer was beyond a pain to hook up when we moved in and it took us hours to finally get it connected. We were so sure that we were going to have to disconnect it to move it so I avoided tackling this makeover something fierce. Well with the fridge sitting in the spot where our Christmas tree goes I knew I needed to just get the task over with so I could deck the halls come time. Turns out the dryer was a breeze to move with no issues at all! It is not often that things turn out way easier than expected when doing home improvements so it was a very welcomed surprise!

Here is a peek at the space with the new Peel & Stick faux tin wallpaper on the ceiling. On the list of things left to do is to add some type of crown molding.

To make for an easier install I ended up cutting the Peel & Stick into sections of 3 tiles. It enabled me to reposition and stay as straight as possible even though the ceiling/walls are not straight.

Laundry Room Makeover Part 2 Farmhouse Cottage Style

I started making over our laundry room back in August but never got around to sharing on here so yesterday I posted Part 1 of our laundry room makeover. Today I am going to pick up where I left off. There were so many pictures that I felt best to just share them in several different posts.

After I finished putting up the Peel & Stick Wallpaper...which actually is not wallpaper  but I will get to that in another post...I could not resist putting up my Wash & Dry Sign and a few other accessories just to see how it would all come together. I loved the cathedral window but ended up taking the metal scrollwork out because I felt it was too busy for the space. I also ended up not putting the sign there. Instead I added a faux beam wood topper to the window which you will see in another picture later on.
