Hello shabbilicious friends,
If you’ve been following me for awhile now, you know that I’m enamoured with all things Scandinavian.
From the whimsical Norwegian Tilda characters to the gorgeousness of Danish companies, GreenGate and Maileg….. so, when Swedish company Photowall wanted to to collaborate on a project, I knew it would be a marriage made in heaven!
Come on in to the craft room and have a look at the scandi mini make-over that took place this week.
Photowall create custom wallpaper and prints…
And oh my, are you spoilt for choice with over 10,000 murals, 1000 designer wallpapers, 10,000 canvas prints and 9,000 posters to choose from. But that’s not all, if you are still having a hard time choosing the perfect artwork for you, Photowall can even print from your own image.
They were kind enough to let me choose one and I must admit, I was mesmerised looking through their online catalogue for a wallpaper or mural to jazz up the craft room.
I was sort of thinking along the lines of a pretty floral…. but then I stumbled across this pastel wood panel print and I knew right away that this shabbilicious colour palette was perfect for ME.
Can you believe, I ordered the Multihued Plank wall mural to fit my room specifications on a Friday and it arrived on Monday morning. That’s some pretty fast international shipping!!
Sooo, along with my trusty assistant; my 80 year old dad, who was a keen wallpaperer back in the 70’s, we cleared the room and wiped down the walls in preparation.
Photowall provided very easy to follow instructions and there’s even a quick video, but seriously, it really was incredibly easy.
The wall mural comes in a roll that is printed as panels. You just have to cut each panel off the roll with scissors and use the paste they provide to adhere the paper panels to the wall.
Within a few hours we had the two walls fully papered… and let me tell you, my dad couldn’t believe how easy it is to lay wallpaper now-a-days.
Being such a soft pastel colour, it is quite hard to photograph in my bright room…. but I think you can see the character the wood panels add to the wall.
The colours range from softest pink, to aqua, blue, mauve and ivory.
I wasn’t sure initially if I’d just do a feature wall behind my sewing desk or extend it around to the other wall…. but we all liked it so much that we kept on going.
The remaining two walls of the craft room are still painted a soft aqua colour.
I’ve not put anything back on my walls yet, as I wanted to be sure that the paper is completely dry…. and I’m actually enjoying looking at my shabby pastel wood walls right now, so maybe I won’t.
