Nana's Day - Working on the New Guest Bedroom!

My sister and I have been working with Nana to finish her basement.  
Once the walls were finished and painted and the carpet in, 
we decided to concentrate on one room at a time.
We started with her Guest Bedroom.
You may remember she already had her guest bedroom in the basement, here. But we moved it to a bigger space with a closet. First up we worked on a feature wall in the seating area. I used my ever famous MDF boards, from here, to frame out the wall and create vertical lines. Then we primed and painted it grey. It's going to be an awesome accent behind her new chairs.

She wanted to keep the bedding and such, so we were working with a red, black, and white color pallet.
One day, awhile back, Nana and I were cruising the Restore and I saw a small roll of red and white wallpaper.
I asked Nana if she liked it?
 She did, so I told her to buy it.
 "What for," she asked.
 "I don't know yet, but I will!"
That's so how I roll!!
I did find the perfect place for it!!
It's this little cubby space that we were building  for luggage,
 but first we had to wallpaper!!

Here is the space before and after the wallpaper!!
I love it!!!
What do you think?

That was step one. Step two involved buying a used coffee table and shelf. Both were already black just like we wanted. We just had to tweak them and attache them together and to the wall.   

I am very detail oriented,
so when we attached the shelf to the wall with an "L" bracket I could not stand that you could see it!!

 Nana and my sister thought I was nuts, but they know me and just let me do my thing!!!
I had to cut out a piece of wallpaper and cover the bracket.

That's much better; crisis averted!!
Anyone else as weird as me?

I will be back next time to show you how the room turned out!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
