Finished the Wall in Our Master Bedroom

Jay and I sometimes like to work together, as a team. Just as long as I realize, that he's the boss, over these building projects! This wall was designed with old pine boards, covered with light green stain. Jay tore that old lumber out, then we decided to use wains-coting on the bottom half, with wall-paper above it. I'm pretty happy with the end result, even though my photography skills are terrible. You can get a pretty good idea what we've done to this wall, in our master-bedroom.

That was so well done!!! I love the delicacy of that wallpaper! I do my own work, since I have my own tools, and my husband does his own work. My work is much more precise than his, so I often have to redo his work. He is no longer allowed to paint a wall.

I get to select the color of paint, but he's in charge of the roller! LOL Why he likes to paint, I really do not understand LOL Kobe would help with yellow stain, but Jay won't permit it!

Thanks, Jay let me pick out the wallpaper and I love how it turned out. This home was our old family house, while I was growing up. It was built in 1958, by my father. The only thing my parents changed, was the furnace and a toilet.

@kobesbuddy Not everyone is lucky so as to live in the house we grew up. And now you are adding your own touches to it.

@marguicha Jay is a builder, so most of the interior he's not happy with. Me, I just help him decide what might look best and then, we change something else.

it's not easy working with your souse at times as I know how that goes when we have to work together but it looks like you both did a great job I like the wall.

Yes, it's hard work, working with our spouse, they can be pretty hard on us! This wall is finally done, after five years! LOL

On I love the woodwork, love the look of wood, the grain in wood is so pretty. I do like the wallpaper too and I'm not big on wallpaper! Probably stems from when I tried to do some and all I made was a mess!

@Ithink All the older wallpaper was weird pictures, butterflies & bonnets, baskets of flowers, birds flying around, frogs, fish jumping out of a pond. I'd never want them on our walls! LOL

@Marty1 Jay has the true know-how to do these jobs, while I have a better idea what might look best, in a certain room. He doesn't know how to color coordinate, but he's a fine builder.

The old mirror is a decoration that I bought in a thrift shop, for $10.

Looks so nice. Your post just reminded me of what I saw having in a toilet in one of the restaurants I had been recently. It says, "My husband and I have a workshop. He works, I shop!" Thank goodness it's not the same between you and Jay.

This home use to be my family's house, where I grew up. Everything was original, as it was in 1958! All except for the furnace and a new toilet Mom bought.

Thanks! We wanted the wall paper to be a lighter color, to brighten up that corner of the room.

Thanks, we sure went through a lot of wall-paper samples, to find one we liked. We didn't want old cars, gaudy flowers, or circus animal faces, those didn't appeal to us.
