Wall Pops

September 27,2016

I love wallpaper but haven’t had the courage to try and put it up! Lucky for me we ran across a company on Instagram that has a new line called Nuwallpaper. Instead of the traditional wallpaper this wallpaper is peel and stick!
Check out Wall Pops website! I am addicted. So easy to put up.

Check them out! http://www.wallpops.com

First part done. I used wall pops tools to smooth out all the bubbles and cut the paper! I would definitely suggest getting them when ordering the paper.


Getting the second part lined up wasn’t hard at all. You can’t even see the crease between the two!

The final product! So excited about how it looks. This is the wall that you see when you come in from my garage! I didn’t tell my husband I was doing this. He was a bit shocked but pleased!

Can’t stop staring at this wall!


Materials used

1 roll of. Wall pops Kensington Damask blue Nuwallpaper

Smoother and Utility Knife installation kit (I am not one that uses tools and such for my projects but this was a must)!

Directions

The company has simple step by step directions. Again I am not one to follow directions but I did since this Nuwallpaper was new to me. It was 3 easy steps that were right on the box! I went from top to bottom when putting up the paper. Then smoothed all the bubbles out. I can’t say enough how easy this was to put up.

I am about to order some Nuwallpaper for my dining room ceiling! So excited.

DIY Shiplap

Ever since we discovered Fixer Upper and Joanna Gaines, we’ve been positively giddy about “shiplap!” A year ago, I had never heard this term and now I would love to shiplap every wall in my house. Like seriously.

My three year old talks about shiplap as if it’s just an every day vocabulary word and my sweet husband just rolls his eyes as I tell him all of my shiplapping plans for the future. My guess is that there are many others out there that have also had their worlds rocked by the beautiful possibility of shiplap, but need some help with getting started.

Well, we’ve got you covered! We have two ways for you to get the shiplap look in DIY style and on a friendly budget. I’m sharing my method in this post and Christine will share her’s in another. ¬†Happy Shiplapping friends!

Method One:

Our master bedroom is big and I wanted an accent wall to give it some farmhouse character. Michael set off to Home Depot for our supplies and I prepped the room. 

 

Michael bought Sande Birch Plywood from Home Depot. He had them cut the boards into 6 inch planks. (Warning- the boards were less than clean cuts so if you can do it yourself, it’s better)

Once he arrived home, we sanded the boards with fine grit sandpaper. We just did the edges and it didn’t take long.

This is me (Becca) taking the boards upstairs.

We started at the top of the wall and did our best to level the boards. We used a nail gun to make it faster but you can do this job with just a hammer (it might take a bit longer).

Progress on the wall…

Once we finished nailing the wood to the wall, it was time to prime and paint. We used Sherwin Williams primer and Alabaster paint. We opted not to fill the nail holes with wood filler because I wanted the rustic look.

Here is the finished wall. I absolutely love how it brightened our master bedroom!

Let me know if you need help or advice. I will just be at home shiplapping.
