Tempaper Wallpaper has apparently existed for quite some time, but it remained undiscovered by me. Had I known, I would not have spent a week covered in glue and paper in my living room trying to put up the gorgeous (but time consuming) wallpaper. Wandering through Janovic, I stumbled upon Tempaper, a vinyl coated self adhesive sheet of magic.
The paper comes in several different patterns. . .
And the company website http://tempaperdesigns.com has room images that are really fun to browse through.
The application video is almost mesmerizing. Back to Absolutely Freaking Out With Excitement. I know it's only a wallpaper demonstration, but I dig it. I could watch it repeatedly - warning - if you watch it, you will not be able to rest until you try it, too.
My friend Dabney and I decided to give it a try and chose to do the bathroom - a small space that would be manageable for first timers like us.
It goes on like butter. At first I was nervous and the process was slow, but once I realized how forgiving this paper is - it peels right off if you make a mistake - we could move quickly. Yes, my bathroom ceilings are high and there was a small incident that involved a ladder and a tumble and a shower curtain rod crashing, but Back to A doesn't like to think about that part very much. (Guaranteed my mother is going to call me immediately after she reads this with a '"I told you so" and a "ladders are dangerous" speech. Back to Lecture City.
I cannot tell you how much I love my bathroom. The difference is remarkable. Now I can focus on putting up the showering curtain, adding some pretty soaps and bath accessories. . . maybe a gallery wall? Why not.
I've already started - quotes that inspire deserve to be framed. Here's a favorite by Audrey Hepburn from a coffee table book (amazing sources for art).
I think Tempaper is the greatest thing since sliced bread. It just makes me so happy.
