When I shared my kitchen reveal the other day I showed y'all the beadboard that Mr. Savvy added for me.
I have been wanting beadboard added in here for quite some time and I still want it in the powder room and the master bath.
Here is a close up.
Now back to the kitchen. Does this look like real beadboard?
How about here?
How about now? Well, I guess I better spill the beans. Since Mr. Savvy did not want to take the
baseboards off to hang real beadboard the right way I told him I could get beadboard wallpaper.
Yep, we went that route and I bet you couldn't tell the difference could you? Tell the truth, now.
Mr. Savvy did not believe that the wallpaper could possibly look real until he saw it in person and then agreed to hang it. Thank you to whoever invented this stuff.
Not to think that this job went down without any problems. I thought I would share what a klutz I am.
While I was moving the ladder I set one of the legs in the can of paint. Oops. I stood there and let a lot of it drip back into the can and then I reached down and brushed the rest off into the can. Then when I came up I hit my head on the shelf of the ladder. O.k. you can quit laughing now.
Never a dull moment around here.
Beadboard wallpaper was purchased at our local Ace Hardware.
The cost for the beadboard wallpaper was $19.99 each for two rolls and still have some leftover.
Real wood trim at the top was $30.00 and tube of caulk was around $2.00.
The most expensive thing was the Benjamin Moore paint at $50 for the gallon, but I still have more than a quarter of the can left over.
Thanks so much for the overwhelming response to my kitchen reveal!
Giveaway coming this weekend.
