Whether you’re sending one off to a college dorm, setting up a first apartment or just want to do a little back-to-school update, peel and stick wallpaper may be the place to start your scheming. We did a little bit of this over the weekend in my oldest daughter’s room. When she wanted shelves to display all of her things, this is not exactly the way I envisioned it. . .
Before we started organizing, we decided to pop a little pattern onto the back with removable wallpaper we found online at The Home Depot. There are a ton of peel and stick options on their site, plus free delivery with purchases of $45 or more–or free in-store pick at your local store. (Returns are free, too.) We landed on this emerald green and pink block print designed by the Novogratz.
I’ve said it before but the very best thing about this kind versus traditional wallpaper is that you can actually pull it right off and reposition it if you mess up, making installation (and eventually removing it) a breeze. In fact, my 13-year-old did most of this project by herself. She basically told me I was getting in her way. . .
The other nice part of this update is that we used less than a roll of wallpaper. A pretty doable change for $37. Here are a few other ways you might use a small amount of peel and stick paper to update a dorm room, bedroom or work area:
