203k Loans, Simple to Stunning: Bold Walls

Simple to Stunning: Bold Walls

I have oddly fallen in love with wallpaper. It feels a little like a forbidden love. I grew up in a home where we flipped houses on the weekends which means removing layers of wallpaper and paint from many walls! But the wallpaper that I have a love affair with is not the boring repeated pattern wallpapers, but instead the bold, amazing, glamorous papers that can turn a boring wall into one of art! Let me show you some examples:

Bold Floral Wallpaper

Gahhh!!!! These two walls make me want to fill the next few lines with heart emojis! But then I think back to my Saturdays spent peeling off stubborn wall paper that I’m sure someone loved as much as I love my bold florals. But instead of deliberating further over my inclination to avoid wallpaper and my current love of it, we are going to consider an option that involves vinyl decals. Thanks to uwdecals, we have an option that gives the same bold statement as this amazing wallpaper without succumbing to the lure of covering your whole wall in glue and paper. They offer a pack of vinyl decals which you can mix and layer however you want to create the look you hope to achieve—a beautiful bouquet that never dies!

On their site they provide step by step directions as well as photos to guide you along the way! Their decals do appear easy to use and apply to walls, once you have them laid out the way you want. Here is a link to their “how-to” page

Are you a home rehabber like my dad and totally relating to my distaste of wallpaper? Well, did you know that we offer a rehab loan that rolls in the cost of the projects with the financing of the home itself? To find out more check out our free downloadable guide.
