Now that you have some inspiration, don’t be afraid, make that idea come to life! Peel and stick wallpaper is a really easy way to get your project done. Stephanie and Renee just did an accent wall with this awesome birch tree wallpaper. Here are some tips! 

 

What I Learned About Peel and Stick Wallpaper with D. Marie Interiors

Stephanie Castillo

1. Choosing Your Paper

When choosing a wallpaper try to narrow it down to 3 choices. Pick a few that you love and give yourself one option that is out of your comfort zone. Hang up all three pieces on the wall you want to accent with a little piece of tape. Then stand back and take a look from few different spots. You will probably narrow it down to two very quick, and that is great. Which one makes you feel best? That is the one to go with. If you can’t decide, leave them up for 2-3 days and see how you feel about them. Go to D. Marie Interiors in Ellensburg and they will give you samples you can take home and try.

2. Prepare the Wall

The wall needs to be clean and smooth, ideally no texture. A simple wipe with a damp warm rag will remove any dust, dirt, and grime that will affect adhesion. Let the wall dry. Peel and stick is very forgiving but will not stick as well if it is to textured. Smooth, clean surfaces like wood stairs, built in book cases, and furniture pieces are great for peel and stick wallpaper projects as well.

3. Tools

  • Level. Any level will work. For larger areas a laser level is ideal.

  • Utility knife. Grab a fresh blade. This will give you nice clean cuts.

  • Wallpaper smoothing tool. This can be anything with a smooth edge, like an old credit card or gift card.

  • A friend. This can be done alone, but a little help from a friend is always easier and more FUN!

4. Grab a bottle of wine or a couple of cold beers and get to work!

We love Gard Vintners Winery. 2015 Pinot Gris Grand Klasse Reserve is my favorite!

Remember, peel and stick is easy to use and forgiving. If your first piece goes on crooked, take it off and start over. This is an amazing product for anyone who rents or likes to change up the look of their space often. It’s also a great backdrop for photos.
