This is not Your Mother's Wallpaper!

If you are already turned off by the word “wallpaper”, sit tight and let me convince you that this is not your mother’s wallpaper. I am sure we all have visions of potpourri explosions on the walls thanks to the 80's. Perhaps, you remember the sports themed or animal themed borders via the 90's, but I am here to tell you wallpaper has come a long way!

I was aching for a small change to my front room, and wanted to do something different than the usual painted accent wall. This is what I came up with:

I pulled this off in less than an hours time and for less money than a gallon of paint!

Here is why I love wallpaper:
  • It adds big impact!
  • It can be less expensive than painting. I found my wallpaper at Target of all places (and it was on clearance for $20 a roll)!
  • It is easier to remove than paint (which is great if you are renting).
  • There are so many fun options and choices out there!
I love how they have applied wallpaper here:
Needing an update? Then maybe wallpaper is your answer!

Have a good one!

  1. Wow your room looks incredible! Was it too hard to apply? Because that's what holds me back doing wall paper I'm afraid if I don't get a pro to install it then it will look like a big mess.

  2. Thanks! It was easy to apply, that is why I loved it! I found simple instructions on YouTube. The only other tools I would recommend would be a razor, wallpaper smoothing brush (found mine at home depot), and a wallpaper through for the water (also at Home Depot). It also helps if your walls have a smoother texture.
