How to Hang Removable Faux Brick Wallpaper (Antique Booth Update)


Back in April I moved into my space at Antiques on Main and said goodbye to the other store I’d been at for four years.  If you remember, AOM only had a small endcap space available at the time, and I was praying for a bigger space to be available soon.  (Read about it Here.)

Here’s my small space when I moved in:

A few weeks later they called and said I could have a bigger space in May.  (Wahoo)

The space is set up now and almost complete – it has a 6-ft tall wall on the left and back sides.  The right side is open to booth next to me, and I’m creating a temporary partition to help define my space.

I lucked out with this pretty gray wall, but it ended up being much darker than the other white and cream “walls” (doors) in my space.

I’d been dying to try this faux brick wallpaper that’s easy to hang and repositionable.  It doesn’t get much better than peel-and-stick for a look that’s temporary but has a big impact!

Mine is from Target – but Here’s a similar one from Amazon (and a little less expensive too).

It’s great for antique booths like this but really any wall in your home can easily become an accent wall in an afternoon’s time.

First, measure and cut the faux brick wallpaper.  Peel a few inches off the back to get started, making sure your paper is lined up nice and straight.  Go slowly and press out any bubbles as you go.

Keep going with the other panels, and be careful lining them up next to each other.

Remember it’s easy to unstick and redo an area if you need to.  Also, it’s not necessary but it really does help to have a partner to help hold the paper or press out bubbles.

Lining up the faux brick wallpaper panels is pretty tricky, so we went with the “it’s good enough” plan instead of perfection.  😉

If I were hanging this in my home and had to see it every day, I would have been more picky about lining it all up perfectly.

I think we succeeded in making a statement wall that is more cohesive with the rest of the space now.

    Looks great! I have this same removable wall paper from amazon, except mine is red. I used it in my kitchen on anchoring walls. I love it & so does everyone who sees it. It looks very real. It’s a great way to add character & texture to your walls.

    I like the idea but all of my walls are stucco. That takes me out of the competition doesn’t it?

      Unfortunately wallpaper probably won’t be an option for stucco walls. 🙁

    Jen,
    Your space looks great. The wallpaper and larger both will showcase your hardwork.

    This looks great Jen, but if you wanted to save the paper for your next space, I have read on a site where a renter who could not paint or attach anything to the wall. Just attached it with tacks or staples. So when she left she just took what was holding paper in place and if there was small holes she just covered them with white tooth paste. Your booth looks out standing. Thanks for all the info you share.
