Blue Stars for Big Boy’s Room



A new sister is coming, potty training is in progress, and so it’s time for this toddler to move out of the nursery and into his “big boy’s room.”

Pictured is an accent wall, against which the bed headboard will go.

Because the wallpaper is dark and the primer on the wall is white, it’s possible that seams may not grab tightly, and white gaps may appear along the seams.

To counter that, I’ve run a vertical stripe of dark paint under where the seams will fall. The paper is a non-woven material, which has a high fiberglass content and will not expand when wet with paste, nor shrink when it dries. Yet it doesn’t hurt to have a little extra assurance that white won’t peek out at the seams.

I also used a bit of artist’s chalk (not oil or ink!) to color the white edges of the wallpaper. More insurance.

This wallpaper is by York
