Living room makeover for under a £5

Hello all,how are you today?
Well can you remember the Wallpaper i bought a while back..the deal with my husband was we wait til the allotments and garden are all up to speed and we have no other jobs to do..well the weather has kind of forced our hand..its too wet to dig and the allotments are doing just fine..the front garden is a big project and we have a few more things to get first.
So you can totally imagine my surprise and sheer delight when my gorgeous husband suggested we strip it out and get it done..believe me ladies you don't turn it down..quicker than a flash i had the fireplace emptied and put out the way..
It took him about an hour and a half..with a tea break in there..
It went from this

To this..what a total difference one roll of wallpaper makes

 Look at the pattern isn't it lovely.


 The big mirror that was on the fireplace was taken down..i thought if i put it back up then the pattern on the paper would not be seen..we moved it to the other wall and lowered it a little so the girls can see in it now..i did some jiggery pokery with my picture frames and i think it turned out ok..
I bought 2 rolls for £8..only used one so that makes it a real frugal makeover..
I took the opportunity to have a good spring clean whilst i was at it..the room just looks amazing ..so bright and i love my new wallpaper..
What do you think..?

  3. It looks lovely, perfect for Spring, nice and fresh :-)

    You must be tempted to use that other roll somewhere!!

    I always look out for single rolls of really nice wallpaper on offer, I have two waiting in the wings at the moment, as you have proved they change the look of a room instantly.
