Wallpaper isn’t outdated OR old-fashioned! In fact, wallpaper is coming back and better than ever. Wallpaper is a great way to brighten up shelving or the inside of an old drawer! You can even use wallpaper to cover a piece of old furniture but my favorite thing to do is create an accent wall in the home. There are so many wallpaper ideas and patterns and it’s fun to brighten up a room with a wallpaper accent. These wallpaper ideas and prints are sure to stick on you, or at least something in your home! 😉
Before I begin sharing my wallpaper ideas with you, I figured I’d share where I purchase my wallpaper from! Though I frequent Home Depot for some wallpaper styles, one of my favorite places to purchase unique wallpaper is Houzz!
Also…before tackling any wallpapering project, make sure that you have the following things:
If you love the look of a wallpapered accent wall but would rather not commit to the actual wallpapering process (I’ve been there!) try this wallpaper idea! Use 2x4s and a large sheet of plywood to create a large frame that fits your custom dimensions. Paint after assembly. Before attaching the plywood to the frame, sand down the surface of the plywood and cover it in a layer of wallpaper. Once smoothed and completely dry attach your pieces together and enjoy your new wallpapered wall art! This was one of my favorite things to do while renting!
While looking for wallpaper ideas for my youngest son’s room, I came across this tree pattern and I fell absolutely in love. I loved the woodsy look of it so much that I covered the entire lower half of his bedroom in it! The top half was covered in a navy blue color. It was my favorite room of the house for a few years! Or, at least until he made me change it, sigh.
