Guest Bedroom Walls

There are two rooms in our house that have remained untouched since we moved in.  Both are small bedrooms that we have been planning on using for future children.  Until last week, both rooms were used for storage and the doors were kept closed pretty much all of the time. 

So, we decided to use some paint that we got during a major sale at Sherwin Williams, our old mattress (A few months ago, Matt and I got a new mattress.  It has individually pocketed springs and a very thick layer of memory/tempurpedic foam on top.  It's fantastic.  It did however leave us with an older mattress that wasn't quite ready for the garbage.), some art we used to have hanging on the walls of our rental, and a hand-me-down nightstand from my grandma to make a sort of guest bedroom.  I don't plan to drop a lot of money on this room as it won't be used very often and we have plenty of furnishings and accessories that can be repurposed into that room. 

Here is what the "guest bedroom" looked like before I got my hands on it: 

Awesome, right?!?  The first thing I did was remove that crazy fabric from the window.  Then, I got to work on the wallpaper.  Luckily, only one wall was wallpapered (though all of the walls have a border).  Here's what it looked like close up:  


But, as I started to scrape off the old ugly, crazy wallpaper, I found......

Different old, ugly, crazy wallpaper!!!!

It's very pink with these women gardening or just hanging out in a garden.  It's a little tough to figure it out, exactly.  I'm pretty sure it's original to the house (built in the 70s), as the only thing under the bottom wallpaper is the drywall. 

My favorite part of the wallpaper is that each of the girls has a different word on the pockets of her dress; Fun, Love, Joy, Happy.  It's very, very 1970s.  And I kind of love it.

Here are some close-ups:

Okay, I know this is an old post, but I just found your blog and I've been reading through it. I just had to comment to say that wallpaper reminds me so much of a sheet set I had as a little girl. Would have been early 80s. So cute!

It is also important to keep away from incurring fresh debts as long as you're still in the heart of your loan payment. Traditional financial institutions, for example, typically take a no less than often one among their television set commercials "half-truth?
