You can't? :) Well, I helped my friend Rachel at Eden & Eden put up our beautiful Forest Leaves wallpaper in her lovely shop in Jackson Square! My favorite shop deserves my favorite wallpaper after all... Above is the before. A striking red, but still...it was time for a change!
We ended the wallpaper where it met the gray paint Rachel had "dip dyed" earlier. So, being more creative, she stepped back in to figure out the best way make the edges match. This involved distressing the edge of the paper with matches and sand paper while I go to find a sandwich :)
Here's a picture of three of my favorite things. I have both the wallpaper and the small lamp in my apt, and since seeing that equally awesome bag, I've been brainstorming to come up with a reason that I deserve to own it... [Technical side note, in an ideal world, it would have been better to paint the floor board prior to wallpapering, just FYI...]
