In my latest project, my Industrial farmhouse boys' room, the biggest DIY project was the wall treatments. I was super impressed with the Devine Color + Target DIY products. They have some super cute wallpapers to choose from.
Brick Wallpaper Accent Wall
First I cut a couple of strips the height of my wall. Since I was doing a wall with lots of windows, I didn’t cut all my strips first. I had a lot of obstacles to cut around and this particular type of wallpaper made it super easy to lay strips in more of a patchy way.
I started from the ceiling and worked my way down, letting gravity work in my favor. This wallpaper is so great because you don’t need to get it wet or activate any glue or add any paste. It has a backing that peels off like a sticker and if you stick it to the wall and need to adjust it, just carefully pull it off and adjust it and it still sticks with the same adhesion power. I don’t have a ton of experience with wallpaper, but I’ve heard it was a pain. This was definitely more doable.
I used the squeegee (paint scraper) to work from the center of the wallpaper to the edges to remove bubbles. I also used it to push the wallpaper flush into the edges of the wall, ceiling, baseboard, and window trim. Then I used the razor blade to cut off the excess and leave a very finished edge.
It took some patience but overall a fun project and so super exciting to see the end result!
