Removable Kitchen Wallpaper Backsplash

2 Materials
1 Hour

Last year we gave our kitchen a renter friendly paint makeover, but after a year of living with it, I could tell we were missing something. We were missing more colour and pattern. I took to Spoonflower for vibrant pattern, and then applied it.

How to make a Removable Kitchen Wallpaper Backsplash

As far as projects go, this one relatively easy to do, but you’ll do it in stages. You start by measuring the surface, and then ordering the appropriate amount of rolls.

This pink & purple stripe motif is just what the space needed. It’s called  Stepped in Magenta & Plum by Danika Herrick. You can buy is at a fabric, a removable wallpaper, or a regular wallpaper, and even gift wrap! How cool is that, gotta love when you get customized options to suite your needs. I ordered as many short rolls as I needed to completely cover the surface beneath the cupboards, as well as above the cupboards.

Applying removable wallpaper as a backsplash

Just like with   wallpapered rolling bar cart  our removable kitchen wallpaper backsplash was applied in sheets, using an applicator tool. But before I got down to actually applying the wallpaper, I removed the switch plates etc. and gave the walls a quick wipe to remove any gunk, dirt and oil.

Applying Peel & Stick Wallpaper

You’ll receive an applicator with your order, but in a pinch a credit card does the trick. Start by applying the top of the sheet under the cupboards (one straight line against another), and then slowly peel off the backing, while using the applicator down the middle of the sheet until it’s completely unfurled.

Completed Removable Kitchen Wallpaper Backsplash

The removable wallpaper backsplash totally changes the look and feel of the kitchen nook, so I added a few things, moved others around, and of course got some fresh flowers. Unfortunately the donuts are for show only (they were given away) since they’re not exactly  Keto friendly…not even for a lazy girl.
