Use this adhesive wall paper to create a statement Faux Pallet Wood Wall!
A couple of weeks ago, my husband suggested we print up our National Park pictures to display in our home. (You can’t tell a creative blogger you want to display something and not expect it to turn into a project. LOL) I countered with the idea of creating a gallery wall to display the pictures. We have this small alcove off the main room that leads to the master bedroom and I have had such a difficult time deciding what to do with that space.
He was totally on board but said I was in charge of figuring it out. We hit up Michaels, picked out some frames on clearance, and had the pictures printed. Later that week I was at Target and spied this awesome wood pallet wallpaper and knew what I wanted to do with it!
To make your own Pallet Wood Wall:
Measure out your space. I used my rotary cutter and mat to cut the pieces. You can manage this with scissors but I found this easier.
The back of the wallpaper states to apply to a smooth surface. The wall I wanted to use this on was textured. But I’ll get to that fix later on. Keep reading!
Once cut, carefully remove the backing. Apply to the wall. Smooth any bubbles out.
As you can see, he still got roped into helping me. Continue cutting, applying and smoothing as you work your way up the wall. Sadly, I put the bottom piece upside down. If you were to turn this piece the other way, you will notice there is about 1/4 inch of a new plank. Place the wallpaper the other direction and overlap the next piece over that section. Then you will not see the seams.
To secure the wallpaper, I bought 12 foot quarter round that I had Home Depot cut to size. Use a nail gun to attach the quarter round into the corners of the wall. This will serve two purposes. It will secure the wallpaper to a textured wall and it gives it a finished look.
I placed it on the sides and across the top near the ceiling.
Then it was time to add our pictures! Kyle really wanted to use the family pictures we took in front of the National Park signs. Sadly, those are all horizontal so it made the wall a little difficult to configure. But I’m kinda in love with how it turned out!
The canvas is a picture of Reed walking among the sequoias with a John Muir quote about walking in nature. I love it!
We are visiting five more National Parks this summer! I can’t wait to add more pictures to our wall!
