My latest DIY is probably one of my absolute favorite transformations! I found this inexpensive Peel&Stick wallpaper online and knew immediately it would fix my ceiling woes!
My dated, patched and ugly popcorn ceilings were a constant deterrent from my family room decor ideas. When taking pictures of my space I always tried to get as little ceiling in the picture as possible. Unfortunately, I knew a brand new ceiling – patch, repair and paint – would be out of our budget at this time. I needed a somewhat temporary (but possible permanent) solution that I could do on my own. This fix fit the bill perfectly! And to be honest, the textured popcorn ceiling underneath makes the distressed faux tin tile look even more realistic. The best part was the easy, clean and fast application. In under 2 days I was completely finished and because it was Peel&Stick wallpaper, there was no water or glue mess to contend with (Winning!) so clean up was fast and simple.
Tip: When hanging, I found it was easier to cut each square individually beforehand. This saved a lot of back ache and neck ache I am sure! The squares were easier to manipulate and because they have a distressed look, lining up the lines was a breeze. I also reinforced the pieces with Elmers craft spray glue to ensure adhesion due to the fact that I was hanging the paper upside down on a popcorn ceiling (I had nightmares the next few nights of coming downstairs in the morning to all of my beautiful paper on the floor! – Luckily, my nightmares never became reality!)
