My mom came down on a Friday evening and since I had done all the prep work, we got the room painted in just a couple hours. Eleanor was very eager to help.
We thought since the painting had gone so well and quickly, so would the papering part. Boy were we wrong. After wallpapering just one wall, I now know that I will never do it again. It takes so long and has to be so precise! In fact, we ended up having to tear down one whole panel because it came out looking so poorly.
Definitely a very difficult process, and not a lot of fun either. At the end though, I loved the look of having wallpaper in the room and fell in love with the wallpaper even more! My friend Jenni helped pick it out with some specifications - I didn't want it to be pink but still wanted it to be girly. She then designed all the details of the girls' room - the part that I have never been good at as I am a large picture person. I will post more on the finished room when I can and post a link to her pictures/post, which she has all the details and much better pictures than mine!
Eleanor took this picture of us once we had finished laaaaate in the day, hence it being a little crooked:
