Decorating with Wallpops wall stickers

hello readers!

Today I’m sharing my recent experience of Wallpops. As you will know if you are a frequent visitor here, renovation and decoration is the order of the day at the moment.

We are still working on the kitchen and although the Ikea fitters have long gone there is still work to be done.

It feels like quite a big responsibility to get things right in the kitchen now, as we’ve spent so much time and money on it. Choosing the wrong paint colour  or tiles would feel like such a big deal and be very frustrating.

After going through a few sample pots we’ve ended up using what is our favourite paint (yes that’s actually a thing!) Antique White from B&Q… And allowing ourselves some breathing space to give any future decisions about colour the time they need to become apparent, and right for us and the space.

So I’m all for methods of decoration and interior design that aren’t too risky and don’t involve a big commitment at the moment, Wallpops are just that.

Wall decoration for the interior design commitmentphobe…

Having loved the chalkboard trend for a while now and loving chalkboards since being at school (I even made my own- it was cat shaped) I decided that these stickers would be a great way to experiment with the chalkboard idea in my kitchen without slopping black chalkboard paint on my lovely new walls.

I went for a traditional rectangular shaped sticker and some quirky speech bubbles that I like to think are a bit Pop Art inspired or maybe even comic book inspired.

I used both designs in my kitchen and I love the way they’ve given an interactive area for everyone to use. Although I may use the other two speech bubbles in my daughters bedrooms at some point in the future, for reminders and the like.

With the rectangular one I didn’t want it to look like a random sticker on the wall so I dug out some washi tape from Ikea and made a quick frame around it, this was really easy and quick to do. The actual Wallpop sticker itself was really easy to put up too. The whole thing took me about 10 minutes.

As you might be able to tell we’ve literally just finished painting, so the speech bubble stickers, which I thought’d look great above the cooking area and the shelves which are normally there haven’t been put in that place as the shelves aren’t back in their regular position yet. I rather like this one on my cupboard door though. (As a side note the sticker doesn’t stick as well to the wood at this stage, might need some time to flatten out).

 

Disclosure- I received these Wallpops for the purposes of this review.

    I love the chalkboards! I found a really nice one in Urban Outfitters which I’m totally tempted to buy 🙂 Happy Friday – enjoy your weekend!

    They’re so cool I will definitely check them out. I love chalk boards too-I tried the paint but it ran down my cream wall!! Nightmare. At least I wouldn’t have that problem with stickers
