Wallpaper + Shiplap in the Dining Room!

You guys!!! My dream of wallpaper in the dining room has come true. My mom and I literally just finished this project today and I couldn’t wait one more second to share it with you. It turned out SO good and I’m completely smitten it. Plus the shiplap is done, which I haven’t shared here either. The dining room has a whole new vibe now!!

Eeeeek! I love it so much. I don’t know why in the world I’ve waited so long to try wallpaper. This has totally changed the vibe of this room and I couldn’t be happier with it. This wallpaper is actually from Home Depot–it was peel and stick so this section of wall only took a little over an hour to do! And the beauty of peel and stick is that I can easily change this out down the road.

I kinda decided last minute to do the wall about two thirds of the way up with shiplap. The original plan was to shiplap this whole wall, but I changed my mind the day before our contractor was scheduled to come. I just wanted to mix it up and give wallpaper a try. I’m so glad I decided to go for it! I love the olive branch and the fact that it symbolizes peace is just perfect for our new home.

This was actually super easy to install. My mom has done a ton of wallpaper in her day, so she took the lead and taught me how to do it! This big thing was making sure our patterns lined up correctly from piece to piece, which is pretty easy to do. And because it’s peel and stick, there was no prep required. It just sticks right on the wall–so easy peasy! I can’t wait to do more in our home. I think I’m hooked on wallpaper now!

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope this gives you a few ideas for your own home. xo

      Looks beautiful! Wondering if shiplap is peel and stick? Would love to do shiplap in bedroom; however, concerned the peel and stick would be difficult to remove if and when I want to change it?? Thank you!

    Sarah, such a great job! Love it…
    Do you have to put a primer or a wallpaper sealer on the wall before you put the wallpaper?
    I love the olive leaf too!

      Nope, no primer at all! Just peel the liner off the back and stick it on the wall. Super easy!!

    Love it!!!!! But not feeling the mirror or
    the two lamps…too many different styles in one space. Your wicker chairs would look great in the dining room!!!!

  18. The prints are exactly what I expected them to be. The canvases are mounted and stretched well to the back frame. The hanging hardware are of good quality and they were attached to the back frame straight and level so the prints hang properly on the wall. They have a very beach feel so they hang best in a room where you are trying to draw the outside environment into the room.
