DIY Removable Wallpaper

Here I go again… another room refresh.  I love to update rooms in my home.  We should be happy where we live right?  I don’t like cookie cutter same, same, same… I never have, but I love color and clean lines all at the same time.  I re-did the powder room about 5 years ago with a fresh coat of paint an added an adhesive wallpaper but I was over the pink.  I like pink, I really do. As a matter of fact I have a touch of pink in pretty much every room in my house.  Our house has gone through many changes since we bought it 19 years ago when we moved to Atlanta.  I have never been afraid of color or using different textures to bring a room together.  I am not a designer by any means but love home stores, a great before and after, and of course #HGTV.  

I am also a fan of ‘designing on a dime’.  I don’t want to spend a lot of money and honestly you don’t have too unless you are doing a major renovation.  We have had our fair share of those around here and those spaces still look good because of what we chose to keep them timeless.  I decided it was time for the powder room to get an update but just a small one that I think made a big impact.  I love the removable wallpaper product. There are several companies out there.  I honestly don’t remember where I bought the pink wallpaper but found this product at Home Depot from NuWallpaper.  I wanted that shiplap, board type look and settled on this design.  I was going to do all white but decided to stay with some color.

First up, I took down the old pink wallpaper.  It was pretty easy because it’s removable.

I then measured the wall and started cutting.  I only had to cut 2 sheets but the hard part was getting around the lights.  I disconnected it from the wall but kept the wires because I am not an electrician and Karl was not home.  So I worked with what I had.  You really can’t mess it up because you can keep removing it if it’s not matched up correctly and it won’t ruin the paper.  It said the paper on the back comes off easily in one piece but I beg to differ.  I had a little issue with it, but not enough to not buy it again.  All in all I think it came out pretty good.  I headed over to Tuesday morning and bought some new towels and a soap dish I found on clearance.  I love Tuesday Morning!  A lot of great home finds at great prices.  Total cost of this project?  Under $50 for a quick fun update.
