HGTV Wallpaper in the Entry

 Hello!  its been so long...please forgive my absence, retirement has been keeping me really busy!!. I just don't know where the time has gone. Thank you all so very much for all the sweet wishes on my retirement.
Way back in the late 70's and 80's Gary and "loved" wallpaper and wallpapered almost every room in our home! yep we sure did...LOL
I felt so sorry for the ones that had to rip it all off the walls when wallpaper went out of fashion.
I have always loved wallpaper and wanted to use it again but not on every wall.
While watching HGTV I saw a commercial about the new wallpaper line HGTV was sponsoring with Sherman Williams.
I began dreaming of wallpaper in the entry and of course my curiosity got the better of me and I just had to go see for myself all the patterns of wallpaper.
I fell in love with the bold red rose pattern when I first laied eyes on it and knew it was the one I wanted for the entry.
Gary also liked the pattern and agreed it was the right choice for our home.
So we ordered a double roll (that is how it was sold only in double rolls) we only needed one double roll it was enough to complete our entry and only papered 2/3 way up the wall.

 The wallpaper was unpasted so we had to paste. I must say at first I was a bit worried about the process of pasting but to my surprise it was so easy and went up nicely, not much waste at all.
Gary put the chair-rail up for me  (thank you honey XO)
 It was a bit hard to get good pictures for you since our front door has so much light coming through. We kept the door green, I think its OK, what do you think?.

This picture is a bit dark (sorry) but I wanted to show you more of the entry.  I'm  not very good at fixing the color on my photos. I guess I should take a photo class now that I am retired...( but I don't have time) hehehehehe.

So what have you all been up too?.
