how to get a brick wall with walls republic

Even though I live in an apartment, I like to think I have great vision.  I have now created a brick wall looking corner in my living room.  Thank to Walls Republic who asked me to check out there wall paper.  I have another project I did coming up soon.  You won’t even believe where else I used it.

I was able to go on there site and get 5 swatches for FREE.  You can too just go on their site Walls  They will send you these, what I thought pretty huge swatches.  It can be overwhelming to choose and for this brick paper I ordered I hadn’t even gotten in my swatch list.  When I saw the great look and feel of the ones I had ordered I went with my gut and ordered a roll of brick.  I am so beyond thrilled with how this corner has turned out.

I just picked up some glue at my local paint store.  I know that you can get it just about any hardware store.  I totally plan on building some sort of mantel for this corner.  I have visions of my grandson hanging a stocking on this mantel.  But let’s get back to the wall paper that started all these visions.

I had my girlfriend stop by one afternoon and was able to wrangle her into helping me hang it.  Not that you really need two people for a little corner like this.  It just made it easier on me.  Not having to come up and down the stairs as much as she was able to pass me anything I needed.


Also she was able to take funny pictures she is multi talented.  Thank you so much my friend.  😉

I used a brush to put paint the paste onto the walls.  Here’s my list of tools.

Wallpaper Brush,

Paste Brush,

Trim Guide With Stainless Steel Blade,

Snap Off Knife,

Seam Roller

A clean wet rag to clean up any excess glue.

So you see even while living in an apartment you can create a fabulous feature wall.

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I’m now loving this corner of my living room.  I have great expectations for it.  And it all started with a roll of wall paper.  Thanks so much Walls Republic.

Pin it for later.

    Gosh Anj, it looks like a real brick wall and to think it is wallpaper. You’re always thinking out of the box my friend. I think their wallpaper is one of the best.
