If you've seen our YouTube channel, you know I am DIY obsessed. And anything involving "crafting" of any kind, you can count me in. So, when I visited with the designers of the newest line from WallPops! called Nuwallpaper, I knew I was headed down the path of sprucing up my home.
Though I love living in New York City, there's still a part of me that wished I owned my home. But like most of us here, we are still in the rental phase which also means that our apartments are technically not ours, so we can't exactly paint whenever we want to.
Before I begin, let me tell you that I was a skeptic. I've seen "easily removable" decals and other brands of stickers that promise up and down that there will be no residue left after you attempt to remove it. Never the case. With WallPops! NuWallpaper, it's so easy to remove and reapply, you're going to wonder how you lived your life without it.
Because my walls aren't perfectly even, I was stressing out over the "evenness" when I was applying it. Then I realized I could just peel it up and stick it again and the fears of it not staying up were erased by day 7 when everything was still in place. Even after I peeled some back to test, the re-application was smooth and sticky. (And when I felt the wall behind the sticker, there was absolutely ZERO residue. Wow.)
So here's my BEFORE wall:

Spiked Apple Cider Pops
September in the South is, in my opinion, still summer. The eighties and nineties always prevail and make the traditional fall flavors that I crave so much slightly out of reach. As much as I want to relax and sip on some hot cider, at the moment, I still need something iced. ...read more

And here's my AFTER wall, with me showing you that you can peel it up and it will still stick even after a week:
Because my wall looked so fabulous now, I couldn't stop there. The adjacent door connecting my living room to my kitchen has tiny windows. To give myself a little more privacy and a little more color, I used the Geometrics Window Film.
