Wall paper is cool again, but hanging wall paper the traditional way is not so cool. It’s hard. You have to measure and cut and do all kinds of crazy things. What if I told you wall papering was really easy? My crafty real life friend, Rachelle, recently bought a condo in Austin, and she’s sprucing it up big time. I’m kind of helping, ha! At least I helped with this wall paper project. We discovered a simple method that works like a charm.
Here’s what you need:
- Wallpaper tool kit
- Paint tray and paint brush
- Wallpaper paste
- Thin sheets of paper
Here’s how it works: Apply a thin layer of wall paper paste on your wall, stick a sheet of paper to it, cover with a thin layer, voila… done! Well, continue the process until the entire wall is covered, but yea… it’s that easy. It feels like mod podge-ing your wall.
We used a patchwork method to apply the the paper. We overlapped the sheets of paper just a tad, and we wrapped the corners of the wall. We like that you can see the seams!
The 2 walls took us about 2 hours. It’s really that easy!
Have you ever wall papered a wall? I remember helping my mom remove wall paper back in the day… that was not a fun chore! How do you feel about using wall paper? I’d love to hear…
