Using Chalk Finish Paint on Wallpaper - Yes You Can!

My 19-year-old son, Ben, lives and works away from home during the week, but comes home on the weekends.  I wish I could say it was because he misses his momma, but I think it is a different, much younger, blond female he comes to see. Sigh.

Anyway, I wanted to redo his bedroom last week as a surprise.  It was looking like a tired version of a 14-year-old boy's room, and I thought it was time for it to grow up.

I started with a trip to Ikea (my favorite go-to store) where I bought bedding: a twin-sized duvet for $24.99 and a pretty, but still masculine, brown and white checked duvet cover and matching sham for $9.99 (yes, $9.99!). Unfortunately there wasn't a dust ruffle there, but a quick trip to Bed, Bath and Beyond (with a 20% off coupon) took care of that for around $15.
