A Little Weekend DIY

For months and months Christoph bothered me about wanting to get a new TV. Total waste of money in my opinion but he works so hard and it was something that he really wanted. I finally caved and let him get the TV but there was one stipulation:

- I would get a budget in the amount equal to the cost of the TV to put towards redecorating finishing decorating our apartment (win/win)Step one in my decorating: I was looking for a way to brighten up our entry hallway. It’s the first impression people get when they come in and the hallway is pretty dark and drab with very little natural light. I knew I wanted to use wallpaper to brighten the space. Since we are renting I was limiting my search to “renter’s wallpaper” that is supposedly removable without damaging the walls.

After a BUNCH of online searches I finally settled on this wallpaper. We put it up on Sunday and I love how it turned out! It was a minimal investment and it’s already making such a difference in the space. I have much more left to do so stay tuned as I continue to use my decorating budget!
