When designing Ruby’s bathroom, I wanted the room to be soft, yet colorful and fun. I originally wanted to use wallpaper, but we wanted to keep this room under a budget, and usually the wallpaper styles I’m in love with come with a hefty price tag. A friend told me about Walls by Mur, and I had been keeping their products in mind for a future project. They were perfect for the bathroom.
Before I did anything with the design, I had to get the walls ready. I painted them a nice clean white, then painted the ceiling a pretty soft coral/pink. I wanted to draw your eye up, add an unexpected pop of color, and soften the room a bit, as it was all white from top to bottom. I also replaced all of the moulding around the door, and put in new baseboards.
I selected the Small Fry Drops (now on sale!) in soft gray. I ordered three sets of 46. They came in sheets. The first thing I needed to do was layout where I wanted them to go.
Because raindrops are kind of haphazard naturally, I didn’t want them to be spaced too perfectly so I decided to just eyeball it. I used post-its to lay out the pattern.
After getting the post-its in place, I simply peeled off a raindrop, then replaced the sticky note. The decals peeled off really easily and they were just the right amount of sticky. They stay in place, but if I wanted to reposition it, I could peel it off and re-stick it. I used a ruler’s edge to smooth out any air bubbles.
It was pretty fun peeling and sticking, and it took a Ruby nap and I was done. It was so darn easy. And I just love how they turned out!
Such a simple project and so much easier and less expensive than wallpaper. Just what this room needed. You can see the rest of the bathroom here.
