A Hallway Makeover ( & $100 Giveaway)

Walls Need Love - Love this Hallway remodel! And this Wallpaper is the best kind! Easy to put up and easy to take down!

I’ve been wanting to dip my toes into wallpaper for an embarrassingly long time. Yes I know, wallpaper is messy and a pain and …outdated (or so you think!) I’ve done my fair share of scraping off layers of wallpaper from houses built in the 50’s and spent my time in elementary school helping my mom hang up boarders around rooms (and then take them off again.) Even still, I’ve always loved something about it.

Timing was starting to feel right when we got NEW carpet in our house when we finished the basement. The fun & spontaneous hall I painted right when we moved in needed updating.. badly! Then Walls Need Love walked into my life and my eyes became open to a new world of wallpaper – wallpaper that was not only easy to put up but also easy to take down (and move around as much as you want as you try to line things up perfectly!!!)

The holiday break allowed for just enough time for a little Hallway remodel (among the yuletide joys & family gatherings!) I wanted a way to make a statement with not as much effort and knew I found the answer with the Moody Triangles Removable Wallpaper & a couple cans of paint!

Details:

    • Oak & Oats

      Thank you so much! We love how calm and cool it feels!

  • I’ve seen some really pretty wallpapers lately, but I’ve also never committed because I know what a pain they are. So I’m so happy to learn that there are companies out there that have made the hassle basically disappear 🙂 This wall look so pretty with your new paper!

      Yes! I know! People just think of wallpaper being outdated but it fact it can be really fun & classy!

  • Love this a 1000x!

  • This turned out so cute! I love how using bright colors and neutrals can open up a space like this. I love how it turned out! 🙂

    • Oak & Oats

      I know! IT is pretty magical how much better the space feels!

  • Oh my goodness! I LOVE that wall! And your entire hallway looks fantastic. And you make it look and seem so simple to do. lol I live in an apartment right now and can’t do anything to my walls but I may have to ask if “wall decals” are okay. Ugh. I hate the plain white.

    • Oak & Oats

      Oh girl! There is no residue and it is literally stick on, peal off when you want! I totally think it is perfect for dorms and apartments!

  • I LOVE it! It is seriously the most unique and eye-catching wall I’ve ever seen in a home. Thank you for sharing!

    • Oak & Oats

      Thank you so much! I was a little nervous of the bold shapes but I LOVE so much how it turned out!

  • Wow LOVE the new wall, so fun!! I need to try that wallpaper out, removable is a great option for those of us in apartments or that have commitment issues haha 😉 Thanks for sharing!

      • Oak & Oats

        Yes! I so agree! I’ve been telling all my friends that!

  • Removeable wallpaper sounds like the best idea EVER! We’re just starting to get to the point where rooms we painted are now getting re-painted (and we’re about to order carpet for our unfinished-but-on-its-way upstairs!) so the wallpaper giveaway is PERFECT! I love how bright and white the space is around the lovely pattern 🙂

    • Oak & Oats

      Thanks so much! Yes! You should totally try it! It is wonderful! Go house projects team!

  • This is so awesome! I love that wallpaper pattern!! Definitely something to look into for sure. All of our walls are blank…and it’s been five years. HA!

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes! This stuff is amazing because in less than an hour you can have a fun wall (that just peels off when you are done with it!)

  • I love ur Wallpaper choice, it adds so much personality to ur home. I am dying to do something in my hallway to add personality but don’t know what I want to do yet! This does get me inspired though! Thanks for sharing!

    • Oak & Oats

      You should totally do something like this! Make sure you enter to win the giveaway! You could win $100 towards that project!

  • That was really a makeover, love the colors, the design and let me tell you the canvas is just amazing. What a great project. Way to go, great work! Inspiring!

    • Oak & Oats

      Thanks so much! I love it too! And yes, I am a HUGE fan of all the Naptime Diaries Canvases!

  • We used Universal Grey in most of our house! It’s such a good color.
    Your hallway looks amazing!

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes! I love it! I am slowly adding it to every room 🙂

  • This is so fun Beth! I love the update! How does the wall paper work? You can put it up and take it down and move it?

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes! It is kinda magical. So like you unroll it and peal of the backing. Then you stick it to the wall but if it isn’t just the way you like it, you can peal it off and put it back on. It like sticks really well but can easily be pealed off with no residue or anything – it is real messy free!

  • Wow this is an incredible makeover! I love how bold and stylish that wallpaper is! And Naptime Diaries is one of my faves!

    • Oak & Oats

      Thanks so much! And yes! I LOVE LOVE naptime diaries!

  • That wallpaper is amazing!

    • Oak & Oats

      Thanks so much! It is really a fun product because it is so easy to put up and take down!

  • LOVE this! Now my entire house needs a make over! 🙂
