Take your kitchen from basic to beautiful with removable wallpaper backsplash!
THE BACK STORY
We purchased this mid-century fixer upper several years ago as an investment property. I adore a mid-century kitchen but this one was beyond a minor facelift, the previous owners bred dogs and kept them gated in the kitchen which basically destroyed the floors (and sub floors) plus we needed more counter space so we started from scratch.
We put Humpy Dumpty back together again several years ago on a shoestring budget. We never installed backsplash thinking that we would do it in Phase II but Phase II never came!
FAST FORWARD TO PRESENT DAY
I had seen a lot of design bloggers use removable wallpaper in their projects but I had never used it myself. I always use traditional wallpaper in my design projects. While I was at the last Fall High Point Market on a buying trip, I stopped in the Tempaper showroom and fell head over heels with their patterns and the quality looked fantastic up close and personal.
Since Phase II never came, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I selected a Tempaper removable wallpaper in a pattern called Soleil. This pattern is inspired by Morocco’s colorful imported tiles. The terra-cotta and blue starbursts blends perfectly with the wood tone of my kitchen cabinets and really makes them pop! I decided to install the removable wallpaper from the counter all the way up to the ceiling to make a grand statement wall!
I'm a FAN! This is the PERFECT solution if you are a renter and ripping out flooring or painting cabinets are out of the question. It is also a great solution if you don't have a lot of experience with home improvement projects since you can DIY the installation and don't need to hire a wallpaper contractor or tile setter! It was fairly easy to install....lot's of measuring, cutting and pattern matching. You cannot beat the price, besides time and effort, the investment was about $80.00!
