SMALL SPACE D.I.Y.:
Tempaper, A Wallpaper Solution For Renters






I realized that I never posted about my temporary wallpaper experience! A few weeks ago, I put up a few rolls of Tempaper wallpaper. This temporary wallpaper comes off as easy as it goes up. Seriously. We love the look + vibe of our small space with the paper up. We put it on 1 wall in the main room and 1 wall in the bedroom and it changed the whole look of the space.

Thanks for sharing. What is the texture of the paper? Is it vinyl or paper? I looked at the website and was not certain. Would it work in a bathroom?

Hi, Kareena! It's not vinyl, but rather just paper. Just peep the wax paper back and "paste" up each sheet. The paste is almost like a post-it note that will always work (if that makes sense). As far as a bathroom, it should work in there. Send an email to the girls and I a sure you will hear back. Have fun!

This is so cool! I haven't seen how much it costs yet, but it might be my solution to the one ugly wall in my rental that I just can't do anything with.

If you don't mind me asking, what was the cost of wallpapering with this stuff for you and what was the size of the walls you were working with?

It looks really great!

Hi Amanda! You can email Tempaper for quotes. Not sure if they are change with the prints. I need 2 rolls for each wall.

I've been thinking about using this temporary paper for a while. It looks great on your walls!!

I was wondering... is it hard to get it hang properly? Or does it sort of fall into place once you get the top hung properly? I've never hung wallpaper, so I am curious...

urbansardines, it's not hard to hang but it's not easy to get the pattern lined up and it's not easy to make the paper super smooth. There are always some little air bubbles. After a while, I just kind of let it go and it looks just fine. I moved the bubbles to the bottom of the wall and it's all good. :)

If you love the idea of temporary wallpaper spicing up your rental here's another crafty idea. I remember seeing it done on television years ago...hanging fabric on your walls with starch. None of that stinky wallpaper smell and best of all when you get tired of it you can rip it off the wall, wash it, and use it for something else.

The wallpaper idea is great, especially for people like myself who are renters. I absolutely love the orange wallpaper, it is a really great alternative to painting. I am definitely looking into wallpapering for when I move into my new apartment this summer. Thanks for the great ideas!

I love tempaper too. I bought the damsel black and white at http://www.couturedeco.com. It looks amazing in my living room.
