Morning, Glories! I trust you are well on this fine day.
I’m excited to share with you our latest ‘mini-project’. Since this product hit the shelves, I’ve been dying to try it! And it brings a much-needed architectural element to a plain wall in the breakfast room.
This is our breakfast room, before:
Just a plain ol’ painted half wall. The room was in desperate need of some architectural interest!
The product that saved the day is beadboard wallpaper! Yes you heard me right- WALLPAPER, of all things. Yes, I previously swore off wallpaper, never to go there again.
Ah, but this isn’t your ordinary wallpaper. This is paintable, strippable (easy to remove) faux wood-treatment wallpaper!! It’s the closest you can get to beadboard other than beadboard itself!
I went to Home Depot and purchased one roll of the Martha Stewart Beadboard Wallpaper. It looks like this: (you can click on the photo to see what I used)
To prep my wall, I wiped it down with a damp sponge. The existing finish was flat paint (UGH!), so it was probably dusty and
might have had a cobweb or two.
Then I just followed the package directions for applying the paper. As you can see in the next photo, I measured (twice, right?) and cut (once) the lengths of paper that I would need.
My goal was not to have to trim after I got it on the wall and it worked! My measurements were good and I had nice, clean pieces to apply to the wall. (The pillow in the floor is for my grandma knees!)
And this is what the finished wall looks like:
I’m almost hesitant to divulge the easiness of this project. It was super fast and the results very rewarding! The painting took much longer than hanging the wallpaper. You will want to paint the entire wall in your trim paint. I used a gloss white decorator paint.
I absolutely love how it turned out! It makes me want to put beadboard all over the house! (I’ll try to resist that impulse…) Go ahead and pin this image for future reference, in case you want to try beadboard wallpaper!
Have a great weekend!
