A while back, my good friend, Lacey, showed me this gorgeous wallpaper that she’d spotted on West Elm’s blog, Front & Main. She’d contemplated putting it in several spaces and (being the supportive friend that I am) I wanted her to also put it in several spaces. To be quite honest, I wanted to use it in my house from top to bottom, but it was definitely her thing, and wallpaper is so damn expensive that I thought I’d live vicariously through her.
That was literally two years ago and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. When I showed off my new home bar, I told you guys that I wanted to use it in there, Finally honing down the need to use it on every square inch of my walls.
So I decided to just go for it. I hopped online to order and after doing some quick math, realized that it would take me six rolls (and $200) to do my tiny little 8 x 3 room. And that didn’t even count the adhesive, the tools, and the labor to get it up. I backed off of the ‘checkout’ button and gave this some thought.
Could I do a similar effect with paint? Would that be crazy hard? I would get to choose my own colors if we went that route. It would also save me over $175. Could I really pull this off? Do I even want the words faux finish looming in my house?
So here I am on a Thursday. Weighing my options, racking my brain, wondering if I’m crazy for not just going for the real deal.
Tell me… Am I nuts to consider painting this effect? Or should I give it a go?
