The wonderful world of wallpaper

I love me some wallpaper.

When it came time to re-decorate a wall in our bedroom/nursery, I knew wallpaper was the way to go without spending too much money (and putting more nail holes in the wall :/). Wallpaper can be EXPENSIVE but I found lots of affordable options on Carter and Main, Amazon and Walls Need Love. We wanted a print that was mature enough for adults but young enough for a baby. We decided on a peel and stick wallpaper because we live in a rental and it will be easy (hopefully) to take down. We landed on a whimsical forest print and love the way it turned out! You would think with the bold and dark pattern it might make the room feel smaller, but it actually made it feel bigger. Wallpaper is also a safe way to decorate a wall where a crib is up against – there’s no heavy mirror or framed art that could fall on your little one.

Final Pick: Amazon’s Groovy Garden

Total Cost: Wallpaper + extremely sharp cutting tool + smoothing tool = $131.96

Some Tips: Before ordering, measure your wall/walls to see how much you’ll need. We got by with 4 rolls for 1 wall that measures XXX and had enough leftover for me to cover part of my closet. It feels like a little treasure box now. You could also use the leftovers in a drawer, cover the back of a bookshelf, or frame it for a piece or art.
