Oh, boy, has it been a journey to finally do our first wallpaper project. It may sound silly but it took me soooo long to make a decision on Amaya’s wall. I knew I wanted to do an accent wall but I just didn’t know if I wanted to do wallpaper or a board and batten look or maybe even shiplap. OR do I leave it the way it is? It was a lot of discussions and when I say discussions, it was an internal discussion in my head. haha! Doing any sort of accent wall takes effort and you also have to make sure you are willing to stick through with it for a while.
Here is the deal though, peel and stick wallpaper come in all different price points. I almost got one that was $600 bucks that would only cover ONE wall. But I didn’t because something in my head and heart told me, just keep looking. After searching for months and months, I finally found this company RoomMates and they have a great selection of wallpaper. And I fell in love with this floral pattern only to realize it was out of stock! I thought to myself OH NO.. I finally found the one and of course its sold out. I decided then to go on Amazon and type in the same name and see what happens, and there it was! Same price and on Prime. It was a win-win. I bought the wallpaper immediately. Overall, it was totally worth it. It looks absolutely beautiful and the quality seems great. Time will tell how long it’ll last, but I think it’s a good way to make a statement without it be permanent.
