When I bought my house I wanted a themed kitchen so I went with the wine theme (partly because I hold a special place for wine in my heart). As I’ve gotten more into design, I’ve started to move away from a themed room so this weekend I decided to take the first step.
The old owners hung some kind of board on the wall of cabinets to act as a faux backsplash. When I repainted the room I painted the faux splash white and the room a nice beige.
The images are actually scrapbook paper that I found in my collection. What I like about this is that I can change out the picture for the season if I wanted but it adds a nice touch to the bare white faux splash. My Salvation Army only had two of these frames that I could find but after staring at these for a while I decided that I needed a third to balance out the other side of the window. I measured the frames and then went to HomeGoods and TJMaxx to try to find something similar since they have tons of fancy frames like these. As luck would have it I found something I deemed suitable in TJ’s clearance section for only $3.
Step one of removing the wine themed items was a success I think. I added a little interest and dimension to the faux splash with paper and some white frames – a super easy project! (oh and did you see the gorgeous white canisters? Those were a find at TJ Maxx as well. One holds my packets of hot chocolate and the other fruit snacks since I’m tired of looking for both in my cabinets.)
Do you have a themed room that you are phasing out? I blame the years of watching Trading Spaces on my previous love of a themed room! Any small changes you’ve made to a room that has totally transformed the room for you?
