Textured Wallpaper in Kitchen

5 Materials
3 Hours

I wanted a easy and frugal update to my kitchen. FYI I just removed the wallpaper and it came right down. It lasted 3 years.

I cleaned the walls with bleach water then sanded briefly with sandpaper.

I then wiped all the walls down and dried once more.

I used $14 textured wallpaper from Lowes. I soaked the paper for 30 seconds, then folded together for 5 minutes before placing on the wall. It's called booking and it's to fully activate the glue on the back. I then used a tool to flatten against the wall. I then used a small cutting knife that provided a clean cut on corners.

I love the outcome so far. This wallpaper is textured and can also be painted.

    Do you remember the name that made the wallpaper because when I push the link it sends me to a different design then what's on yours and I want that exact design you have

    Did you seal to prevent staining from splashes

    We purchased a home a month ago and this was done on our livingroom ceiling. I fixed the seams which had started to become unglued and painted. It is so pretty and bright again. I love the look. Here's the difference in this picture. Never thought about this for the kitchen. Love it and thanks for the share.
