When I married my husband, I moved into a house with a lot of 70s type wallpaper. For a decorative artist like myself – that’s like being in purgatory (or worse!!!). Now, I love wallpaper…well-done, handpainted or beautifully textured or patterned wallpaper. But – the living room, the powder room, the kitchen, the dining room – the upstairs baths and all the bedrooms had 70s era wallpaper….and I just couldn’t live with it. So, slowly but surely, I began to remove all of it. I will feature more of the before and afters in coming months. I only have one last wall of wallpaper to remove – a camouflage paper (spare me) in what will become a nursery for my new grandchildren.
For the interior section of the vanity, I painted it the Veridine color and then stenciled Royal Design Studio’s Small Victorian Grille. Modern Master’s Statuary Bronze surrounds it – but I sanded it back to age it. I kept the same knobs – only I painted them in the Statuary Bronze. I plan on changing them soon. Anyone have any suggestions? In my kitchen I have the French Birdcage ones in oil rubbed bronze and I love then – so that’s a possibility. But I would love some other ideas.
