How To: Installing Removable Wallpaper

It's a cinch.



  1. Clean and prime your walls (do not skip this step!)
  2. Based on your measurements, cut the wallpaper panels in the correct length for your walls (do not forget to account for pattern repeats!). We recommend leaving a few extra inches on the bottom.
  3. Starting with the first panel, wet the back of the paper with water and let the adhesive activate for 3-5 minutes.
  4. Mark 27" width on the wall, which is how you'll line up your first panel. 
  5. Use a level to make sure your mark is straight
  6. Starting at the top of the wall where it meets the ceiling, gently smooth the wallpaper down the wall.
  7. Reposition and adjust as necessary using a soft squeegee. 
  8. Wipe off excess adhesive from the front of the paper with a soft clean cloth.
  9. Keep an eye out for air bubbles! 
  10. Line your next panel up next to the first panel. Be sure that the pattern matches before smoothing the panel on the wall.
  11. Continue on with each additional wallpaper panel until your walls are covered.
  12. Wallpaper may shrink slightly as the adhesive dries. Be sure that there are no gaps between each panel as you continue hanging your wallpaper.
  13. Trim excess paper.
  14. Enjoy!
  15. When it's time to redecorate, gently peel the wallpaper down starting at one corner of the paper. It will come off in large sheets.
