The other day, I was chatting with my friend Autumn Leopold, who blogs at Smart~Happy~Organized. She had read the post I wrote last month on creative ways to decorate with wallpaper and was excited to learn about peel and stick wallpaper. You see, she’s been struggling with a design dilemma in her home for quite a while, and believes that this product may just be her solution.
I invited her to share her design dilemma with all of you, as well as the solution she’s come up with.
Take it away Autumn!

Happy Spring everyone!
I am super excited to be chatting with you today! Even though we can expect a few more snow showers here in Colorado I love that it’s spring! Aside from my normal spring cleaning and project list I have a winter project I still need to finish up and I thought I would share what what I have decided to do with you! I’m going to be using peel and stick wallpaper for the first time!
I have some built in’s in my basement that I have struggled with what to do with for four years! First, I saw a color combination of teal and mint in Country Living magazine I loved and had to have:
Yeah, that didn’t look as good on my shelves! You can see I am already painting over it here! So then I went with a grey and painted the walls behind as well. It was way too complicated taping everything off and I wasn’t going through that again.
Better, but now it looks like a battleship (again not the color I was going for, but I refuse to paint them again).
Next, I tried some decals which I didn’t love. I really wanted to try wallpaper but the wall behind the shelves is concrete and not at all smooth. So I gave up…until now!
Then I found what I think is the perfect peel and stick wallpaper for the back of the shelves – this gorgeous Peel and Stick Wallpaper:
We are going for a cozy area and have some vintage ski items we will use as decor. So I needed a way to dress up the battleship grey. I realize they are still cool colors but I can warm it up with other decor. I really like the weathered look. Also, I will be hanging it horizontally not vertically.
I haven’t started the peel and stick project just yet but I am convinced I have found the solution!
Let me show you some of the different varieties of peel and stick wallpaper I have found.
I plan on being brave and actually using real wallpaper in my main level half bath. I’m crushing hard on this design right now By Cole & Son:
I’m also thinking of doing one wall in my office soon. Well I should say I’m going to have someone install the real wallpaper for me! Installing peel & stick is about as brave as I get.
Have you used peel & stick wallpaper? I would love to hear your experience with it!
