7 min read

This publish shares learn how to set up a brick wallpaper accent wall in a master suite (or anyplace you need some architectural curiosity.) Including an accent wall on the headboard wall actually energizes an area and makes it really feel utterly totally different.This undertaking is available in at lower than $300.

We’ve got been mulling over our master suite ever since we moved in right here 5 years in the past. We’ve carried out so many initiatives in our builder’s beige home and as soon as we bought it arrange, we haven’t carried out a lot else to it. I painted the partitions the identical shade as our essential shade in the home, Gatherings by Magnolia Residence. I did get the bedding assembled and adjusted out the Euro shams for larger ones alongside the best way, however we knew we wished so as to add one thing on the headboard wall.

That is how the bed room has regarded for many of our 5 years right here. Nothing incorrect with it, nevertheless it was lacking a wow issue.

We talked about doing one other field molding therapy right here and portray it a shade. However since we did the image body molding within the sitting room, we actually didn’t need to repeat it. We additionally checked out actual brick pavers which might be messy, time consuming and costly. We figured it could value over $1500 to do that wall, plus the mess it could make didn’t thrill us. So Mark began performing some analysis on brick wallpaper and located this very practical model from Woodchip & Magnolia out of England. This sample known as Wayoh and we cherished the colour of it. He ordered two variations, one with grey grout and one with white and the white one gained us over. This undertaking isn’t sponsored, however we undoubtedly suggest the paper.

We taped it up for just a few months and determined to deal with it and Mark ordered the paper and we’ve had it sitting for awhile ready to get to this one. Effectively, it’s Christmas so why not soar right into a undertaking the week earlier than Christmas?

We pulled the mattress out sufficient that we may get a step ladder behind it and first cleaned out the mud bunnies that had moved in behind the mattress and nightstands.

On a aspect observe, how does that occur and why is it SO dangerous again there? It’s simply terrible so one perk was all of it bought cleaned up. We pulled the nightstands out so we may get behind the mattress. I took the lead on this undertaking since I’ve carried out wallpaper just a few occasions and Mark assisted me. It undoubtedly helps to have 2 individuals on a undertaking like this.

Instruments Wanted to Wallpaper:

A sq.

Degree – we made positive the primary piece was stage as we began in order that we didn’t have points in a while. Typically corners aren’t utterly plumb, however ours was fairly good.



Reducing software

Wallpaper smoothing software (pictured beneath)

Small curler for rolling on the paste

Small paintbrush to get alongside edges for the paste

Small bucket of water with sponge

Paste the wall – Wallpaper paste

That is the Solvite paste the wall wallpaper paste (affiliate hyperlink) we bought. It labored nice. It has a gel like consistency and went on the partitions properly. I used a small foam curler and a small paintbrush to ensure it stayed the place I wished it to go.

I’m unsure what this software known as (it says paint defend on the tag), nevertheless it works nice for placing up wallpaper. I used it to easy the bubbles out of the wallpaper and likewise to chop alongside the highest and backside for a clear edge subsequent to the crown molding and baseboards.

We taped off the wall adjoining to the place we have been beginning, however you don’t actually have to try this. Some glue goes to get on the partitions and you’ll use a moist sponge to get it off. This specific wallpaper is paste the wall wallpaper. I had by no means used it earlier than, nevertheless it was surprisingly simple and never that messy in any respect. This paper was so good to work with, it’s heavy responsibility and I by no means felt prefer it was going to tear on me. It was simple to line up the sample and hold shifting. We did this undertaking in 4 hours in simply sooner or later. It went method sooner than I anticipated. That is after I rolled on the paste for the primary piece to go up. I may have gone slightly heavier right here. You don’t need it dripping, however you need to make certain the wall is roofed utterly with loads of sticking energy. It’s pink and dries clear.

You’ll be able to see I’ve a step ladder and a water bucket with sponge. That’s the smoothing software I’m holding. I began on this nook and measured from the crown to the baseboard to get my measurement on size I would want for the primary piece of wallpaper. It was about 90″ in order that’s how lengthy I minimize the primary piece. I used the straight fringe of the highest to stick the primary piece after which after that, it’s a must to discover the match level and measure from there for every extra piece. There will probably be waste on wallpaper and this sample had a few 2′ waste on the match level. After placing up the primary piece, we took the roll and located the match level after which measured down and marked previous the highest of the baseboard in order that there can be an overlap to chop off. You don’t need to minimize it brief. Go away a small quantity on the highest and backside with the intention to press with that smoothing software and minimize away the surplus with a chopping software.

It’s not laborious to wallpaper one wall like this, it simply takes a while and endurance. Don’t get in a rush and also you’ll be tremendous if you happen to do that.

This publish I did within the laundry room undertaking reveals me chopping the surplus wallpaper alongside the ceiling line. It’s good we had crown already in right here so it was simple to butt it as much as the ceiling.

Mark did a greater job than I did on chopping the highest, so he minimize the highest alongside the crown molding and I minimize the underside piece off. We used a fundamental field chopping software and it labored tremendous.

I laid out the wallpaper within the hallway so I may make the cuts. I minimize off a lot of the additional prime piece after which made positive we had not less than an inch overlap on the underside the place it meets the baseboard. I used a sq. to mark my cuts and drew a pencil line, then minimize with scissors.

Daisy was a giant helper, as you may see.

Piece by piece it goes up and you can begin to see the way it’s going to look. We have been excited already at this level!

Mama’s little helper was proper there with us the entire time.

We used 3 rolls, however solely used one full strip off the third roll, so you should definitely order sufficient. I needed to minimize a strip for the ultimate piece on the suitable to slot in that spot and all of it labored out nice. The match factors actually lined up properly and you’ll barely see any strains in any respect the place all of it comes collectively. This paper was wonderful!

Right here’s the completed product after we completed later within the afternoon with the lights on. It was a cloudy day and the lamplight solid such a reasonably glow on the paper.

We instantly cherished the way it turned out. It felt so totally different in there with simply this wall carried out. All of the sudden it was cozier and hotter feeling.

We get requested about this fan rather a lot and Mark discovered it at Residence Depot years in the past and has carried it round from home to deal with. It actually works nice in right here.

The brick wallpaper provides such a pleasant texture and architectural feeling and it’s wonderful how that occurs. We’re thrilled with the outcomes and couldn’t be happier with it.

For now, this bed room is completed and I in all probability gained’t do much more in right here. As you may see, the rug has tones of deep pink and orange and it actually makes the wallpaper pop with the blues and heat tones. We love our furnishings (from Common and Kincaid) and are very pleased with these decisions. I’ll change out a number of the bedding in some unspecified time in the future and perhaps the lamps down the street, however for now we find it irresistible.

I feel it makes the gorgeous wooden furnishings stand out much more.

Wanting in the direction of the toilet on the sliding barn door. It actually appears good with the door.

Mirrored within the standing mirror, it appears so cozy.

And peeking into the Moody Blue sitting room, it simply feels so good now. It truly is wonderful how including one wall of wallpaper can deliver out the very best in the feel and appear of a bed room. We love this brick wallpaper and what it did for our room.

Hope you loved this undertaking and get some inspiration of your individual. Coming in round $275 for this undertaking, it was value efficient with lots of bang for the buck. It wasn’t sponsored, Mark purchased the paper, however we’d extremely suggest Woodchip & Magnolia wallpaper. It’s very top quality and went on the partitions like a dream.
