Project: Page Me

I jumped in and started my wallpapering project in the powder room last night, and I am loving how it's coming along. I spent a couple of hours last week pulling pages out of old dictionaries, a literature book and some novels, choosing pages with graphics I liked and then some more basic filler pages.

I used a 50/50 mix of Mod Podge and wallpaper glue (probably a little more wallpaper glue--I've never been a measurer and just kind of slopped it all together). There is a little bubbling despite me using a wallpaper smoother extensively, but I decided I'm okay with that. I wasn't going for perfection, just an interesting look.

I'd say I'm about halfway finished, but I've got the trickier areas to navigate now. Ryan pulled the vanity for me (which I put on craigslist and a guy is coming over to look at right now) last week and Macauley took the initiative to put up a sign warning users...


I'm planning to replace the big marble vanity with this more petite little table topped by a vessel sink. I might find something else I like better next weekend when Barb and I go antique shopping, but that's the plan for now.


So I'm back to work...

That is going to look wonderful when you are done. A couple of my friends did one wall(not a whole room!) in their dining room and it came out Fab U Lous!
I'm digging your work table too!

I just found your blog through Cindy at 'My Romantic Home'. I enjoyed readng it and I still have to go back and read some more. I love your powder room. That is a neat idea! I also like the sink idea. I've wanted to do that for a while but haven't gotten up the nerve to have someone cut a whole into my old buffet. That is what I plan on using. It will give me more counter space and have drawers. Come visit sometimes.

Have a great day!

I like the creativity you've employed to make your bathroom unique. The old table idea is really cool. You've set my wheels a spinnin. I already have this Vessel Sink and an old makeup vanity. The vanity needs to be refinished but it will look really cool. Wish me luck!
