Guest Post- Washi Tape Temporary Wallpaper

Friday, May 16, 2014
Kayla from Home Coming is back to share another great project! This one is pretty darn awesome! #whydidntithinkofthat

Hi Pneumatic Friends! I'm here today to share my latest project as part of our Master Suite Remodel. We've finished up the majority of our remodel and are working on bringing in some of our personality into the space's decor.

Justin (aka. The Hubster) is building us a custom closet that we designed. In our new closet, I have one bare wall where I've hung modern hooks to hang my necklaces and scarves from. I've been toying with the idea of covering this wall with wallpaper, or painting it with a fun patterned stencil, but I just can't commit. I'm terrible at stenciling (like really, really bad) and wallpaper is such a commitment.

So I needed a temporary solution, and what better to use than Washi Tape!?

Washi Tape Temporary Wallpaper

I've used washi tape in my home as a temporary design on the inside of our front door, and I love it. I love it even more knowing that I can take it down whenever I'm sick of it, and it would take about 10 seconds.

And that's the perfect solution for this space.

Here's what this wall looked like before I started taping up the wall. And you even get to see a sneak peek of our custom closet built-ins in the background!

Closet Wall Before & After

I had two rolls of grey washi tape that I picked up on clearance a few months ago from Target, which are perfect for this room. Because all of our clothes will be bringing in tons of different colors and patterns, I wanted a tape that was simple and neutral.

Then it came time to start taping out my pattern. I decided to do a pattern of overlapping hexagons which would feel modern yet simple.

Using 6" strips for each side of the hexagon, I started putting the hexagons together and overlapping it with the next shape.

And on you go.

I was able to get two rows of hexagons with my two rolls of washi tape. It took about an hour and a half to complete.

I think my plan will to see if I can find a few more rolls of this exact washi tape, or the same gray color tape since this one may have been discontinued. Then I can finish up the entire wall. But I like how it looks!
