We have cactus removable wallpaper up in one of the bedrooms! Game changer!
It’s too bad the 4 year old owner of the room just shrugged when he saw this transformation. But, Leo has been pretty vocal about his indifference the whole time. I guess he won’t be taking after his mom who has all the opinions about home decor.
Cactus Removable Wallpaper
Here is the inspiration board I came up with… I stuck to most of my original ideas. One thing I knew I wanted from the get-go was cute and on trend cactus removable wallpaper that would add interest to the room, while still keeping it light and bright.
I found this bright cactus removable wallpaper from Anewall. You can actually find it a few different places, they do not own the print.
I decided on their self adhesive vinyl option – a peel and stick removable application! I didn’t want to ruin the wall underneath knowing it’s coming down in a few years. They did tell me if kept it in good condition the wallpaper should last about 5 years. But knowing the way I switch things up around here I would be shocked if we had it by then.
Hey, I always need new content, right?
Installation of Cactus Wallapepr
Installing the wallpaper was pretty straightforward. Jose took the kids outside and kicked the soccer ball around with them so I could work alone. This seemed like a fair compromise that I was up for. From beginning to end it took me about 2.5 hours.
You don’t have to get it perfect the first time. One nice thing about this installation is that when I was still getting the hang of it, I could quickly lift it back up and redo a piece if I needed to.
The most important tip I can give you is to make sure that first roll is put on perfectly straight, and double check with your level. Every other roll you install will be matched up next to it. If the roll went on crooked, you will be able to tell once all is said and done. So get that level out!
Watch me apply a roll on this sped up video:
It wasn’t that fast, but it really was that easy!
These blocks from Bannor Toys remind me of my childhood!
I put a ZZ plant in both boys’ rooms after I discovered how easy they are to take care of. I ignore them for weeks at a time, and they still look just like this. They don’t mind shade and if you forget to water them, they will perk right back up once you remember!
I was going back and forth on finding a large piece of art Leo would enjoy as he grows older when I stumbled upon this vintage flag from Chairish. I didn’t want to pay full price, but they have an option to offer bids, so I made one. The owner of the flag sent me a counter offer moments later, and we had a deal! This international flag sign’s original purpose was to designate safety zones. But…. I just like it because it looks cool and and has green, so whatever!
(See how Leo’s room looks today— totally different!)
I love the view of Leo’s room now from the boys’ jack n jill style bathroom!
