DIY Wood Accent Wall | Dollar Tree Contact Paper Hack

8/18/2017

If you're new to decorating and on a budget like me then, you understand that things like wallpaper can cost an arm and leg. Unless you like painting you opt for something a little less messy. I happened to be at my local Dollar Tree when I came across a few bundles of Quick Cover wood contact paper. I was little reluctant at first because I had purchase contact paper from the 99 cents store before and it wasn't long enough for my liking. I gave in and decided to buy a few and see if I could use it for my long walls in my kitchen.


Upon walking into my apartment you can see right into my kitchen. I realized that the first point of entry didn't really showcase the theme of my apartment - African Urban Jungle. The faux wood look given by the contact paper would remind me of the huts back in Africa. At first I just grabbed 10 rolls but quickly realized I needed 12 and head to another store to get more. My suggestion is never just show up to a store, call see if they have what you need in stock, say..."I have an inventory question" so they can refer you to the right person in the store.


What you'll need:

10-20 Rolls of Quick Cover Contact Paper
Scissors
Staple gun

I spent $12 Faux wood accent wall from Dollar Tree. I also got a staple gun with staples for $5 from a local bargain store. In total = $18 ! NOT including the art from Ross.

 Make sure you take some alcohol an wipe down your walls. A clean wall is easier to work with.
A latter if useful or second pair of hands to help speed up the process.
Once you're done smooth it all out with your hand.
As you can see, I also did the utilities closet - Can you tell me what use to be there?

The finish product! I placed Atticus' items next to the wall to create a cat corner by the windows in my kitchen. I created her dinning space below an IKEA bench I covered up with a curtain. I'll discuss this more in another post.

The first aid bag is from Target.

Happy Decorating!
