Adventures in Wallpapering


Here at Wanderlustre, we have a deep love of wallpaper and all things animal themed, specifically birds, and more specifically, flamingos.

I have been wanting to try my hand at wallpaper since it came back in style ages ago.  As a renter it wasn't an option. And as soon as we purchased our new home in Brooklyn, we moved straight to Africa for 18 months. So finally we are back in Brooklyn and we went at my daughter's room soon after moving in.

We wanted to girl-it-up a bit for her and satisfy my deep need for a bold animal-themed print on the wall at the same time.

We were thrilled with the results and it was not nearly as hard as "they" say.  But it did take us 6 hours, and I think this particular wallpaper was especially forgiving because it is very thick and very textured.  

We used Wallpaper Direct's Flamingo, which is available at http://domino.com/ for a very reasonable $37 / roll.  We used 3 for this wall and just made it.

Not a single bubble in the end.  And such a warm and cheerful room.
