Brick Wallpaper and Accent Chalkboard Wall

5 Materials

After I finished my industrial farmhouse boy's room I set about completing my accent chalkboard wall and my brick wallpaper accent wall. These two walls went relatively quickly and could totally be done in a weekend.


HOW TO APPLY BRICK WALLPAPER

Supplies for Brick Wallpaper:


  • Devine Brick Wallpaper (3 rolls) exclusively found at Target
  • Paint scraper (or other types of squeegee)
  • Razorblade
  • Ruler
  • Scissors


Before

First I cut a couple of strips the height of my wall. 

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 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!
