My Twins Room Make-Over

DIY Projects

read more

The room make-over I did for my twins last month has to be one of my favorite projects so far this year. I didn’t really change a lot of stuff but the room was fully transformed and it looks like a completely different room!!

The first thing we did was paint the walls and add board and batten around the whole room. It was a pretty easy project because we did faux board and batten by just using strips of MDF to make rectangle boxes on the wall. This project made a huge change and really brightened up the room (check out my Instagram highlights to see how we did it) 
The next thing we did was paint the top of the wall a pretty light grey. It’s called Icy Avalanche by Olympic It’s one of my absolute favorite light grey colors and it gave this room the clean, classic look I just love!
Finally we changed the bedding to my absolute favorite bedding by Beddy’s
We picked the Modern Grey all cotton Beddy’s sets for both boys and put their Check Mate and Grey Rugby blankets at the foot of the bed. These bedding sets are a game changer for us. My boys easily make their beds in less than 10 minutes everyday without me even asking!! So not only are they cozy, high quality, and super cute, but they make life easier! That’s definitely a mom win in my book and I feel they are completely worth every penny!
As far as the furniture, we kept it all the same and just moved things around. I added in a few pieces of decor that I had in other rooms to freshen it up a little more. All in all it was a project that I’m very happy with and it took us less than a week from start to finish. Now my boys’ room is one of my favorite rooms in the house!
Check out my before and after!!

Peel and Stick Wallpaper

One of my new favorite ways to give a space a punch of interest is with a feature wall. You can do this many different ways, using materials such as paint, wall treatments, shiplap, etc. There are so many great options out there these days, but my new favorite is wallpaper, and not just any wallpaper, but this beautiful peel and stick wallpaper by Rocky Mountain Decals!!
I can’t get over how beautiful it is and the quality is amazing!! I’m so excited to partner with Rocky Mountain Decals on my loft/playroom update! It was so easy to do and took no time at all. With the help of my husband, I transformed this space from plain and boring to spectacular! 

Check out the process of how we installed this peel and stick wallpaper in just a couple hours!
The first thing we did was prep our wall. Since this is removable wallpaper, they recommend that your walls be painted in with semi-gloss or gloss paint. Since our wall was already painted with semi-gloss, all we had to do was fill the nail holes and take down our blinds.
Next, we lay out the strips of wallpaper. They have made it so extremely easy by numbering each piece and rolling it up in order, so you know where to start and what comes next!!
Now it’s time to get your first piece up on the wall!! We started at the top and pulled off the backing just enough to stick it to the top. This was key to make sure we had it all lined up straight.
This next part is definitely a two person job. You will need one person at the top smoothing the wallpaper down while the other person is slowly pulling the backing off the wallpaper. To eliminate bubbles, start smoothing down the paper from the middle and then working your way out to the sides.
 
One thing that is important to remember if you are wallpapering a wall that has a window is to pretend it’s not there and wallpaper right over it. Once you are done you can come back with a razor blade and cut your window out. This will give you the cleanest and most seamless look. The same goes for the bottom of each strip of wallpaper. You will have a couple extra inches at the bottom. Just let that rest on your baseboard and when you’re done you can come back and cut it off!
Another thing that I loved that made this install so easy was the fact that they have these handy little tools to help get any air bubbles out. If you find a bubble, all you do is take this tool and push the bubble to the sides, and just like that it’s gone!!
And that’s it! Pretty easy, right?!? I’m absolutely in love with my new wall, and thanks to Rocky Mountain Decals this room went from an unfinished room that drove me nuts to one of the coolest spots to hang out in the house!!
