wall...

Well I finished all the floral wallpaper in my craft cottage, but wanted something different on the long wall..


I thought a bulletin board and a chalkboard would be nice, you know for those ideas that if you don't write them down, in five seconds they are gone..lol...first I used liquid nails to adhere the cork board then I measured and painted a chalkboard with the amazing chalkboard paint...

after it was dry I started wallpapering, I chose this blue paper because my daughter LOVES light blue and I love the contrast with the rose wallpaper...

finished wallpapering around chalkboard...

then I framed the bulletin board and chalkboard with some molding...but you know I couldn't just leave it plain, so I glue some vintage pom poms around the edges...

and of course I couldn't stop there, so I added some forget me nots and vintage bling and buttons...
soooo much better...

awwwwww perfect...

I love it!!!! I linked this post with The Shabby Chic Cottage's Transformation Thursday, go by and see all the amazing ideas people have!!!!
