Welcome! I cannot tell you how excited I am to see that wallpaper has made a comeback! The popular peel n stick is great but I'm talking real wallpaper. Prepasted , meaning dipping your cut piece into warm water. Or using wallpaper paste, that which I chose for my living room accent wall. I've been known to paper for work and did it for several years.
When shopping for paper take your time and choose paper you will love for a long time. The paper I chose is from Arthouse, thier paper is fabulous and won't break the bank. I chose a paper that was faux wood with a bit of color and a ton of character. My living room at the present tim is our lakeside cabin, our summer staycation so it's filled with vintage fishing, lanterns and all things cabin. Just a fun room to hang out in. The paper I chose also had fit the bill for a farmhouse room as well. When choosing paper you may want to make sure it will go with your floor as well.
I also cooked up my own paste which worked beautifully;
4 cups water
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar
Cook on stove, stirring continuously until thickened. Cool and paste!
There are so many patterns, styles ,colors of papers to choose from. If you can ladder up, measure cut, plates the paper you can do it! My advice for you is to get a paper you do not have to match patterns the fist couple of times you paper. Be sure you have tools such as lots of rags damp and dry, single edge razors, a good step ladder and a good size soft paint brush for brushing the paste on. Start with a small paper job at first and before you know it you'll be a pro!
Love that I can share this accent wall with you today.
The accent wall lends a bit of fun to the room which also has a fireplace,red plaid cabin curtains and also a faux painted vintage cabin floor.
The sign I crafted with some scraps of wood , paint and imagination . Thanks for stopping in today. Sure hope you will give wallpaper a whirl.
