The Entryway is very small

We need to get a new Carpet runner

The original plan was to do a Grey & White striped wall in our entryway using The U-Stripe It & Design Tool. Look ↓ I even got help choosing a paint from the CIL Blog.

Paint check-mark-13x13-hi

U-Stripe It tool check-mark-13x13-hi

Tape check-mark-13x13-hi

OK so we were ready to go!

We followed the instructions and used the edge of the tool to guide the tape across. As we were doing this we noticed the line was not straight. We attempted this several times with the same results!! After doing some measurements we realized the WALLS were the problem!! The walls were not straight.  I was very disappointed that I was not going to get my striped entryway cause there was nothing we could do to fix this. Damn you, you old poorly built house!!

But I quickly came up with a plan B. Wallpaper!! I’ve wanted to use wallpaper now for a while. And what a great way to make a bold statement in a small space “Go bold or go home” right?. It’s the first thing people see when they enter your house right, so why not make an impact? That’s what I was going for with the striped wall but that aint gonna happen so Wallpaper it is! I have come up with a design plan for my entryway.

I have those two wallpaper in mind but not necessarily in those color. Now it’s time to go shopping, wish me luck!!
