For the past year, my entry-way went through its awkward teen years.
Since I finished my kitchen reno (which was nearly a year ago to the day), I had intended to do something with this wall along my entry. In the reno process, I updated my electrical and painted, and because I intended to fix this wall much sooner, I was sloppy with my paint and never patched or painted around the electrical plates.
Then a year passed.
But I’m glad I can finally say that it’s done! It took a year for me to figure out what to do with this span of wall, but better late than never! Why did it take so long, you ask? Well, I knew I didn’t want to paint it the same hue I used everywhere else, but I also didn’t want to keep it as a painted accent wall. Somewhere along the road of life, I decided I don’t like painted accent walls — but, that I do enjoy feature walls when they’re outfitted in wallpaper, a wood feature like shiplap, or a mural.
I fell for the idea of wallpapering the run of wall, and then fell even harder when I found Unison Home’s Sashi Geo wallpaper. So when I found myself with a day off last week, my mom came over to lend a hand (thanks mom!) and we transformed my entry-way in mere hours. The rest of this post will show before and after shots, and near the bottom, I’ve shared my process, tips, and tricks.
