Home Rental Hacks
Decorating anything and everything is a hobby I thoroughly enjoy! Making a house a home is very important to me and I’ve never really gotten the opportunity do such a thing until now! This is the first time I’ve decided to really go all in when it comes to my home furnishings and decor. White walls can get pretty boring when you’re renting an apartment or home. It honestly drives me nuts. So, I decided to spice it up and add a bit of flare to my apartment by trying out removable wallpaper for an accent wall.
Home Decor Lover on A Budget
Originally I wanted to wallpaper the entire room and of course I still can but it can get expensive quickly. I opted for an accent wall and ended up buying two rolls of removable wallpaper from amazon for 1 wall. The application process wasn’t very challenging to do alone but it would have been a bit more efficien with another person. Also, spending on necessary tools to help apply the wallpaper wasn’t that expensive either.
Typically people will use a wallpaper spray tool to activate the adhesive with. The spray nozzle and size of the tool is much bigger and can apply in a wider range of area when working. However, I didn’t want to buy a tool I only believed I was going to use once. I opted to use a regular hairspray bottle and it still made my process smooth! Don’t say I told you but a ladder also isn’t necessary depending on the height of the wall you’re trying to cover. I personally don’t know anyone with a ladder and didn’t want to rent one for this one project. My next best option was to stand on something tall in hopes I could reach the ceiling. That’s not the safest option and if you’re gonna go down that route, please be careful!
Final Thoughts & Results
Since it was my first time, I was sort of expecting to mess up at least one time. I did end up cutting too short of a strip for the wall and was able to blend it to make it less noticeable. I don’t think anyone can really tell its uneven unless they’re looking for it. Plus its my apartment, so its good enough for me! Lol. Honestly, I don’t have much experience with wallpaper let alone removable wallpaper but I can say the application process was easy, the quality of it looks great, and I would definitely purchase again.
As far as the removing part I don’t plan on removing it anytime soon but if I ever do, I’ll keep you updated and let you know how that process goes. Let’s hope it goes smoothly!
Until next time,
