DIY Easy Faux Shiplap Wallpaper

I've made several posts on Instagram showing a few projects I've done with peel and stick wallpaper. I've had a lot of questions, and so I thought I would get down to the nitty gritty with a blog post. This is a temporary wallpaper that doesn't damage your walls.
I discovered the peel and stick wallpaper from Target.  It's really just like contact paper, only thicker. You can find the link to what I purchased on my blog post.
I love the look of shiplap, but I didn't want to damage the walls and feel like I did something so permanent that I couldn't change it when I was ready. I love what it did for the room!! It brightened things up and added some character and texture.
Here is the amount of texture I have on my walls

 My walls aren't heavily textured, they really are pretty smooth.  If you have heavily textured walls, I wouldn't recommend using this wallpaper.  

For details on how I hung the wallpaper and tips and tricks, you can visit my blog. The link will be below.
I've had this wallpaper hanging in my home for months now, and haven't had a single problem with it trying to come off of the walls.  In fact, I just did another little area in my house.  It added the little bit of character that this plain little nook needed.

    Thank you so much for sharing! I bought some of this wallpaper a few days ago. I can't wait to use it but I haven't decided exactly what it is I want to do/use it. Haha
