Welcome back to the ORC Week 4-Home Office where I am working on DIY wallpaper with tape this week! I am going to use tape, ruler, and scissors to create a wall design that will look like beautiful wallpaper when I am done. This DIY wallpaper project is easy and less expensive than wallpaper.
The One Room Challenge
I just want to remind you first that the ORC or also known as the One Room Challenge is a challenge hosted by Linda from Calling It Home and House Beautiful. Over 150 designers and home bloggers with transform a space and show their progress every Thursday. On November 16th we will show our final reveal for our room makeover. You will want to check out all of the participant’s rooms because you will be blown away by the transformation of each room. If you want a recap, you can visit Week 1, Week 2, and Week 3.
This is what the home office looked like before we started the challenge. I have actually used most of the items in this room but I transformed them in one way or another. The bookshelves were painted white. I turned the rug horizontal. The office chair was recovered with white fur-like material. I made a desk using the two white file cabinets. Curtains will stay and I am using the same picture frame ledges on the wall. We are planning on purchasing a new light fixture, side table, and blush colored chair.
I knew I wanted to add some paint or wallpaper on the back wall so I started searching for wallpaper. The only negative about wallpaper is that I change things in my home all the time. If I go through the trouble of hanging it, I know that I will have to live with it for a while. While looking for wallpaper, I saw this gold metallic and I knew that I wanted to use gold.
