5 Ways to Get Creative with Peel-and-Stick Wallpaper



Go bold with wallpaper, without the paste or commitment to covering an entire room. Farah Merhi shows five creative ways to use peel-and-stick wallpaper. Don’t be afraid of using wallpaper, this temporary option is easily removable but is sticky enough to be used again and again. Here are Farah’s favorite ways to use this design staple in a glamorous way. First things first, measure height and width of the surface, pre-cut each of the panels to fit, align the pattern for large designs, peel the backing, reposition if necessary, and use a squeegee to smooth air pockets. Finally, trim excess. Always apply to clean, smooth surfaces. The second way to use temporary wallpaper is in the a door—this unexpected placement adds character and color to any door. Here, Farah cut and placed pieces inside the molding on this door, but you can also cover an entire door. This creates an unexpected focal point and can really break up the space. Third, use peel-and-stick wallpaper on a nightstand. Cover an old or unfinished nightstand duo with temporary wallpaper and some paint for a stunning makeover. See how Farah transformed this pair from blah to beautiful in another video. Fourth, you can use temporary wallpaper as wall art. If you simply love a pattern but want to confine it so it doesn’t , frame it. This pattern would look great above a mantle, too! Inside a bookcase—this peekaboo style works well in any room. Simply cut to size and cover the back of the shelf. We love this option because it can move from room to room, or if you are renting—to your next place, and still has high impact. Cover a tray—a basic tray is totally renewed with temporary wallpaper. When you aren’t using it to hold beverages for guests, lean it on the counter of your kitchen for a classy pop of color.
