Vardo, Part Four

Wallpaper!

The wallpaper finally arrived from Lowes.com.  It's risky buying wallpaper over the internet because I really didn't know how the colors were going to turn out in real life.  The "red" in the print turned out to be a little on the pink side, but it'll still look good with the planned red curtains.

It took me a day and a half to install the wallpaper in the slide-out.  Thankfully, when I unscrewed the window trim, the windows didn't fall out on the ground.  

I need ideas on covering the sofa.  Possibilities (1) taking the cushions off completely and putting a futon mattress in it's place; (2) Making a slip cover.  I don't really want to take off the old fabric and recover it.  If I take it off, then it's off for good.  The fabric is clipped on with really stiff wires underneath.  Not fun.

In the meantime...curtains and crown moulding.

Oh Wow! I am loving it so far aunt Chel!! My suggestion... make a hybrid divan-fainting chair! Too much? If you like I'll build you one the week I arrive. I'll build the frame with drawers in the bottom for extra storage and then you can just buy a colorful futon and some awesome pillows.
