The walls of the nursery were painted by my husband, and the next thing to be done was the accent wall. I was inspired by Bower Power’s “Put a Burlap on It” post from almost 3 years ago. Instead of putting up a seagrass wallpaper to add to the coastal feel, I figured that burlap would give the same textural look (and would be less expensive). This past Sunday, Mom came over to help install it. All we needed were three 3-yard cuts of burlap to cover the wall, and it was on sale at Jo-Ann’s for $2.99/yard. It was easy to install, too…just needed a heavy duty staple gun and a utility knife to trim the edges at the bottom.
Mom tacked the 1st piece of burlap at the top, and then smoothed and stapled the fabric in place.
Izzy “helped”. Excuse the white socks and dress shoes. 🙂
2nd piece is up
And the last piece
It looks great, adds the perfect amount of texture, and enhances the “coastal” feel. Thanks for all your help, Mom! There’s just a few more things left to do before the nursery is complete. 🙂
