I’m currently on day three of my Flu A test coming back positive and cabin fever is setting in. This flu couldn’t have come at a worse time to be honest. I was anxiously anticipating the arrival of new DIY nightstands for my master bedroom, a closet system for my guest room turned office redo, and Milton & King wallpaper to add a fun pop to the kitchen.
I held off spending for #nospendjan so on February 1st my card was on fire. Naturally I get the flu as I get the notifications of packages arrival. Here’s your sign.
We recently had the whole downstairs painted Benjamin Moore Cloud White. We added crown and board and batten but needed a little something more.
I was at an event recently at an amazing house in Nashville, and in her kitchen was black floral paper. It was love at first sight. I began my hunt for a floral paper for the small space above my cabinets in the kitchen. Just enough to make a fun pop but not be overwhelming. It needed to be a smaller print since the space is so small.
This was my first time ordering from Milton & King. I found several florals on other sites, but when I went to go checkout their shipping prices were $30 a roll. Amazon has me too spoiled to pay $30 for a roll of paper. Especially since I just paid that same price for two Ikea nightstands to be delivered.
So after searching Milton & KingI stumbled upon Flora removable wallpaper.I just knew this would go perfect with my new taupe velvet curtains and leopard rug. I did go back and forth on wanting something brighter. More of a pop but I am going to save those bold decisions for my office redo. And it was so easy, I can just redo it in a few months anyways.
Removable Wallpaper Tips from a Non-Pro
- Clean and dust the walls the day before so the are clean and dry on hang day. We had work done and they forgot to vacuum so not only was I fighting the flu but also dust.
- Follow Directions provided. I typically find the instruction booklet after I finish the project, that’s just how I roll. But even if I would have found it I would have gone against the grain and done things a little differently. I wanted to be able to utilize all the paper I had purchased. I didn’t want to have to match up as many seams. Instead of going up and down, I made the cuts where I had to work around the molding and went left to right. Now truth be told the first strip of wall paper was the hardest. Once I got the hang of how it handled and my husband came in to help, it was a breeze.
- Make all the measurements then cut with a straight edge to have strips lined up and ready to hang.
- Let gravity help you. Roll back a bit of paper while pressing the adhesive side of paper onto the wall. Working from the center out pressing air bubbles to edges. A safety pin will help get out the hard to release bubbles.
So I signed up for Milton & King newsletter, saving 10% plus shipping is included so this little project came in at $59 since I only needed one roll.
Hubs jumped into help and at the end said “we didn’t even argue.“
Watch out chip and Joanna, we are coming for you guys.
