When we purchased our house back in August, we knew we’d have our work cut out for us in terms of updating the interior so it didn’t scream 1990s. One of the first rooms to get a refresh was our dining room. We used Wallpops Nuwallpaper to get the job done. The room has these beautiful bay windows in the front of the house, but they were completely covered up by curtains and they were surrounded by a dark red wall. The space just needed to be brightened up with some character.
When I decided to look around for a peel and stick wallpaper that I could use around the bay window, I discovered Wallpops. They offer an amazing selection of peel and stick wallpaper designs. I landed on this Grey Breezy botanical pattern that I knew would look great with the natural light and next to the grey paint color I picked out for the rest of the room.
Just for reference, here is what this room looked like before we bought it:
This was my first time working with a peel and stick wallpaper, and I must say it was even easier than I expected to be. Aside from the fact that we had to cut around a LOT of window trim, it was really simple to work out any air bubbles and smooth out the surface. Even lining up the pattern on a new column wasn’t nearly as difficult as I initially thought it would be. Fortunately I had my mom over to help me, and let’s say she’s had her fair share of experience putting up wallpaper.
We really started to get the hang of it after the first roll. Lining up, sticking and pressing out the air pockets was a breeze. The most difficult part of the entire project was getting the peel and stick wallpaper on the very top of each window where there was only about a 1/2 inch area of wall. I had to cut thin strips of the wallpaper and adhere it by dragging a pencil along the top of the window. I’m glad it ended up working out.
Once we finished up with the walls, I decided to use some of the scrap Wallpops to cover my outlet faceplate so that it would blend in better with the wall.
I am so happy with the final product. I had an amazing experience using Wallpops Nuwallpaper and I highly recommend checking them out the next time you want to try for a fun new print on your walls. It comes off even easier than it goes on, and it won’t ruin your walls!
So now that we’re finally on a roll with some home improvements and remodels, I’ll hopefully be sharing some more updates with you all soon! We already completely refinished our laundry room and half bath, so I’ll be sharing some details about that project next!
