Week 10 One Room Challenge: The dining room wallpaper reveal! + new chandelier!

Well, we finally made it to the wallpaper reveal. This is 1 of 2 reveals since I also have the entry way reveal coming as well! Oh and I guess this is also a reveal of the lighting! I LOVE IT!!!

As you can see I went with my 1st choice for this wall! 

This beautiful Tuscan Landscape Mural from Milton & King is absolutely beautiful and EXACTLY what I was dreaming of for this room. I went with the color blue, though there are several colors available! Ironically enough our home is a very Tuscan inspired home with arches into every room and while my style includes a very hotel regency, vintage with a touch of boho vibe, this mural captured central Italy beautifully! These panels are 117.6" (300cm) high x 24" (61.5cm) wide. Each roll comes with 3 panels so it will repeat every 3 panels. They arrived so quickly and as you know I worked with Milton & King for my first One Room Challenge HERE! I fell in love after that experience and well...I might have a wallpaper don't be surprised if the rest of this 3,200 Square foot home is filled with more murals and designs from Milton & King!

I will share more of the process and some helpful tips as well on my Youtube Channel soon but you can also follow me on Instagram as I will share some of the reveals there as well! 

Lots of treasures, just don't really go together, plus the walls were a taupe color and not flat! But as you will see I used quite a bit and changed up a few things! 

I did order samples and taped them to the walls, I took it with me to the paint store that is how I fell upon the paint color finally. 

I invested in some help with this project as life has me kind of all over the place...more on that later. Regardless, this wallpaper went up beautifully, as I knew it would. One thing we did differently than before was making sure that we applied even pressure throughout so that it dried evenly, I also applied the glue more evenly as well which made SUCH a difference. But more on tips and tricks! LET US get to the reveal shall we? remember it is not finished just yet, I will be painting the outlets to match the wall color and adding curtains etc....but here is where we are now! 

So before we look at all the AFTER  photos let us take a look at the BEFORE shall we?

I am just so pleased with how it is coming along! The colors, the mood. The chandelier I purchased on sale from , wait for it...Z Gallerie...I never thought I would be one to get anything from there...but I searched and searched and when I saw this...I JUST KNEW IT!!! I am not showing more of the room , since there are more reveals to come...We don't have a lot of light that comes in this room so I did remove the shutters and I am so glad we did! Curtains and more coming soon. But can we just take a moment for this beautiful mural. There is a sense of calm that comes over me in this room, where family & friends will gather for meals and games, laughter & love. I have finally begun thanking this home for helping me through some of the hardest times, and being a place of shelter and security. Now, I hope it will give a sense of inspiration to you all! UGh, and the color is perfect!!!! 

Did I mention that the Restoration Hardward chairs were chairs I actually picked up on Facebook Marketplace for FREE, and the end high back cane chairs are from Savers for $7 if you follow my Youtube Channel Thrifters Anonymous! Speaking of, the reveal of the final room will be on our channel soon, along with Edwina's DIY , HOME reveals and more! So STAY TUNED. 

This isn't even done yet!!!

Special thank you Milton & King for not only creating the most beautiful, easy to apply, inspiring wallpaper around, but for helping me to make it possible. Partnering with Milton & King has been a dream come true! And well you can see what I am talking about!!! 

Will be sharing more on my Instagram
