Busy Little Bee!

I have been wanting to cover the blue wall in my living room for awhile now. I just couldn't find exactly what I was looking for though! It could be because what I was looking for was way too much money on my two students, three dogs, two cats, one two year old household budget:) But...Lowes came through for me in a BIG way yesterday! I was wandering through the wallpaper aisle... and something caught my eye! Grasscloth printed wallpaper! Now I LOVE grasscloth! But again right now it is just not in the cards for me! So I saw this wallpaper and I did a little happy dance only to realize it was twenty plus dollars a role. Not horrible but still a bit more than my cheap self wanted to pay. So I open the little know they have all the rolls hidden back there...what did I spy with my little eyes? A clearance sticker...oh yes! It was on clearance for $7.99 a role!!! Whoo whee...I did a major dance for that one...with a little arm pumping and booty shaking thrown in for good measure:) I only needed about a role and a quarter to cover my wall but seeing as I had to buy them in whole roles I had to get two. So for about sixteen dollars I got my new wallpaper! Be still my beating heart! Now you remember the blue's up there in the beginning in all its blue glory!
Then here it is with the beginning of the wallpaper....which by the way the creepy hand up there is my mom's! She is the best at anything home improvement related and I learned all I know from her. My inexperience with hanging full wallpaper caused my to call in the big guns here:)
And here it is all finished and fancy! I also got a new end table that is zinc and oh so cute! But I forgot to take a picture so I will save it for another post! Oh how I love it when a bargain works out so well for me!

Up next...the great Central Texas snowstorm of '10:) hee hee!
