Your home is a sacred space, one that you want to make precisely yours. However, designing the perfect space is a daunting task, especially when you are a renter. With limited options for decoration and renovation, renters have to get creative to achieve the perfect look for their space. Get inspired and see how one customer created a farmhouse chic bathroom with peel and stick wallpaper.
Lindsay T., a self-employed pet care service provider from Louisiana, faced that dilemma in her bathroom. She wanted to update the space to create the perfect bathroom, but was limited by her budget and rental rules.
To achieve a reclaimed-wood look, she used RoomMates’ Distressed Wood Peel and Stick Wallpaper. Perfect for renters, peel and stick wallpaper doesn’t damage walls or leave any stickiness behind. Looking clean and effortless, it’s great for long-term or temporary use.
Lindsay covered the fronts of her bathroom cabinets with peel and stick wallpaper. Taking it a step further, she distressed the real-wood edges of the cabinets with white spray paint and sand paper for a more uniform look.
How did you hear about RoomMates Peel and Stick Wallpaper?
Before I updated my bathroom cabinets using peel and stick wallpaper and spray paint [on the wood edges], my cabinets were a medium-dark color, which I was not a fan of. I like the look of reclaimed wood, distressed, farmhouse style, etc. Since the apartment I live in is only a rental, I wasn’t willing to invest much money into the bathroom update project. I wanted to keep my spending under $50, which I successfully did!
What are your favorite features of peel and stick wallpaper?
When I showed the photos of my updated bathroom cabinets to a few friends, they all thought that real reclaimed wood was used until I told them otherwise! The product is forgiving in the sense that if you accidentally place it in a way that isn’t exactly the way you want, you can lift it to adjust it.
Was this your first experience of working with peel and stick wallpaper, and what did you think?
Yes, it was my first experience, and I definitely recommend the product.

Do you have any tips for others installing peel and stick wallpaper?
I applied a moderate coat of Matte Mod Podge with a sponge brush to keep the humidity away [since I’m using it in the bathroom].
