Bedroom 1 make-over: using the space more effectively
After: a better use of the window space. Two bed-side cupboards are just the ticket! A new window adds to the room and to the security of the house in general. The wall paper on the window wall are the only remaining ones in the house. We removed all of the old, cracking stuff and completely sanded, primed, filled and repainted. However, this wall paper had a striped texture to it. (It was a plain magnolia, as you can see from the before picture above). I painted terracotta and cream colours into the stripes and put a thin coat of varnish to keep the effect intact. The result is a beautiful, striped front bedroom wall. The colours in the stripes are the same as the rest of the room. Go to ‘Add interest to plain wallpaper‘ for more details about this aspect.
