Now that we are settled into our new home at the resort, we are starting on that long list of DIY’s and room make-over’s that will make our new place feel more like home.
We are being very careful to keep to one project at a time and seeing each one through before starting another… although I have been purchasing lots of yummy goodies in readiness for those future projects.
This weekend we completed an easy and quick make-over on our bedroom.
The room is the same as the rest of the house with sloping Scandinavian style rooflines and timber lined ceilings.
There was not a great deal we could do in this room due to the size, but with a few budget friendly elements and using items we already had, we have made it comfortable and cosy.
The walls were already painted a soft shade of ice blue. We quite liked the colour and it complimented our large cherub picture perfectly, so we didn’t bother to repaint.
The picture was actually a gift from my husband a long tome ago. He liked it because the rosy cheeked cherubs reminded him of our girls, so it is the main feature in our room.
Linen and accessories have been kept to a simple white and shabby colour palette. The addition of 2 small Pottery Barn cushions extends the soft blue wall colour to the bed, as does a blue throw rug we already had in the linen cupboard.
It’s an unusual room in that it has a partial dividing wall (8 foot high) that separates the sleeping area from the walk in wardrobe/dressing room and the ensuite entrance.
The dividing wall definitely needed something decorative that would compliment the shabby look without overwhelming the small room.
And this is what we found….
A beautiful wall sticker from my sponsor Icon Wall Stickers.
With 1000’s of stickers to choose from it took me awhile to decide, but in the end I went with this gorgeous floral love heart sticker in white… it certainly adds a subtle but decorative touch to our bedroom.
I’ve used wall stickers in home decorating many times and love that the stickers can be purchased in a variety of sizes and colours. Another bonus is that they are removable, leaving no damage to paintwork, and are non-toxic. They are easy to clean, and once applied look like they are painted on!
Not only that, they are surprisingly easy and quick to apply!!
Icon Wall Stickers provide you with easy to follow instructions.
Above you can see that my large sticker was cut into two pieces. I used painters tape to stick the two pieces temporarily to the wall, so I could gauge the best position.
When I was satisfied with the placement I peeled off the backing paper and proceeded to rub the first sticker with my squeegee, but you can use a credit card instead.
With one sticker in place, I repeated the process for the second half of my heart. After 10 minutes it was okay to removed the clear top paper and then I could stand back and admire my new wall art…. and I LOVE it!!
I think the Icon Wall Stickers are the perfect budget friendly way to add some pizzazz to almost any smooth surface in your home.
There’s a huge variety to choose from, they are easy to apply and when you want a change they are easy to remove too. . . which I think is also very important.
For anyone who might be interested, I ordered my floral heart sticker form the Icon Wall Sticker website, which is easy to navigate and there’s even a great FAQ page for any queries you might have. I can highly recommend a visit to the website to check out their full range… the only hard thing is what to choose.
Following the application of the wall sticker, we shopped our own cupboards for some added extras to finish the room. . . my favourite vintage bed tray, a mosquito net, candles and a string of fairy lights.
I’m pretty pleased with how my bedroom turned out.
It suits us and our beach lifestyle perfectly.
I’m sharing our bedroom make-over at the following parties this week:
Inspiration Exchange, Live Laugh Rowe, The DIY Dreamer, Tutorials, Tips & Tidbits, , Transformation Thursday, French Country Cottage, The Vintage Farmhouse, 36th Avenue, Be Inspired Friday at Common Ground
