Are you looking for an easy way to transform a space and make a statement? Wallpaper is a great way to transform your space. I recently did a game room makeover for Vinny and I am so happy with how it turned out. The wallpaper accent wall is such a great statement. If you’ve followed along for awhile you know I love letting my kiddos help in the decorating process. I let Vinny pick out which wallpaper he wanted for his gaming room. Walls Need Love made it easy because all of their designs are beautiful and classy. I knew I could give him the choice and not need to worry about a tacky or loud print. He chose Geometric Textures and it was honestly the perfect print.
I am the opposite of a DIY-er but I installed this wallpaper completely on my own. You select your measurements and the paper comes pre-measured and all you have to do is cut the strips along the white line. Unfortunately, I missed that memo and cut in the wrong spots and turned this into a bigger project than it needed to be. But, even with the mistakes I made it still turned out perfectly. So, from a total newbie DIY-er here are my wallpaper tips for you:
- Cut along the white seams so the strips of wallpaper are the correct length and the patterns match up
- Have your tools handy. They send razor blades, and a tool to get the bubbles out. You’ll also need scissors
- Overlap the edges when you are lining up the strips.
- Do not stress about perfection. Patterns are forgiving and I promise you, if I can do this you definitely can do it.

I think I’m going to have a serious wallpaper addiction after this project. The options are endless and I love how a simple DIY like wallpaper can completely transform a space. This project took less than a day and I did it with all three kids home by myself. So, if you are looking for a way to easily spruce up a space, wallpaper is where it’s at. What space would you transform with wallpaper?
