My favorite thing in this room so far is the World Atlas pages from 1912 I put above the chair rail. They were almost disintegrating in my hands as I put the double sided tape on the backs. I was going to use glue but with how often I change my decorations I decided against it.
My husband and I bought this house new so all the walls were white and at my mercy. We had only been in the house for a little over a month when he left for this deployment so when he gets home, he’ll have a new baby and hopefully a completely decorated house to come home to. He might even be more excited about the fact that he won’t have to paint a single wall than the new baby.
