There are a few things in life I am scared of. Snakes. Sharks. and WALLPAPER. Unlike snakes (which I hate with the passion of a thousand fiery suns), and sharks (which stress me out hard), I really do love wallpaper. I want to try to it. But y'all it is just so PERMANENT. Hence, very very scary. But I keep seeing these way less scary wallpaper ideas that use it in really cool and unexpected ways. With the invention of temporary wallpaper, the process got slightly less scary, but it is still a lot of work and a big commitment! It seems so much more manageable to try one of these smaller projects than to dive in and wallpaper a whole room. I LOVE all these wallpaper ideas. Using it as art is genius, especially that gallery wall . So pretty! The drawer liners or picture mats may be a good place for me to start to ease in to the idea. Baby steps, LOL. Take a look at all of these ideas and get ready to find wallpaper way less scary–and way more fun!

How AMAZING are all of these wallpaper ideas? They are seriously making my heart flutter with all the color and pattern. If you are like me, and the idea of wallpaper makes your heart race and your head spin, start with one of the small projects or something a little less permanent! You can decide if you can handle a whole room or even a ceiling (which is so beautiful) once you have completed a wallpaper project on a smaller scale. So get to it, start small, and get inspired to do beautiful and unexpected things with wallpaper!
