Hey there, lovely souls! Between canvases and cruises, I’ve embarked on a little DIY journey, and I’m so excited to share the story with you!

So, as some of you may already know, I dabble in designing wallpapers and fabrics, and one of my absolute favorites is my ‘Sew Sew Sweet’ collection. Within this whimsical series of patterns, is one that I totally fell in love with – ‘Silver and Gold’.  Mostly because its motifs include a golden wired dress form, elegant scissors, delicate flowers and leaves, and, wait for it… a charming little piggy pin cushion! Can you imagine anything sweeter?

Now, our house was originally a model home and the whole house interior was done in Butter, Navy, and Orange.  It was really beautiful and well done but just not our vibe at all.  The first owner kept everything exactly as it was, then we moved in and changed everything except the laundry room for another 7 years.  It was definitely time for a change, a splash of color, a touch of whimsy!   So, I roughly measured the space and purchased two rolls of ‘Silver and Gold’ peel and stick wallpaper from Spoonflower, I was ready to transform the room into something truly magical. The plan was to cover three walls of the laundry room (except for the pesky washer and dryer wall – those things are heavy!) and paint the other.

But, the adventure didn’t quite start as most diy projects would.  It was around 5 PM last night, after a full day of painting and errands, I decided it was time to tackle the task. Hubby, ever the supportive partner, was a bit hesitant given the late hour, but we dove right in! When I get the inclination, I usually just go with it.

As it turns out, my wallpapering skills are, well, let’s just say, a work in progress. But with determination and a sprinkle of DIY magic, I made it work…Just don’t look too closely :)

Imagine my surprise when two rolls barely covered 80% of one wall! Oops! 🙈 But hey, imperfection is part of the charm, right? So, I’ve ordered another roll to complete the masterpiece. I realized that the large scale of the pattern (which I scaled up for this project) made it more difficult to find the repeat in the next roll so we had a good amount of waste.

Despite the hiccups, I couldn’t be happier with how it’s turning out. The pattern, the colors, the whole vibe – it’s pure joy! And guess what? If you’re swooning over this pattern too, you can get your hands on it in a wide array of fabric and wallpaper choices through Spoonflower. Plus, if the scale isn’t quite right for you, fret not! I can adjust it to fit your needs.

I promise to share better pictures once it’s all done and dusted but here’s a sad before and after comparison.  Sad because in my excitement to get started, we didn’t actually take any full before shots. Stay tuned for updates as I embark on the next phase of this makeover adventure. Until then, keep dreaming in color and creating your own little pockets of magic! 🌈💫

Look out for part 2 soon🎨✨


Now don’t get me wrong, the Butter, Navy, and Orange is really nice, it’s just not me.  lol  The valance will definitely be going back up but I have to work on that blue border :).
