Something very important that my husband and I learned through the pandemic is having your own space at home, is so so important. Over the last year, my husband and I have been transforming our garage into my husbands man cave. It is where he likes to entertain his friends when they come over, and where he likes to spend his most time. Before last year we had a tv and mini fridge out there, and two chairs. That was it. It was still a garage. Well, with all the extra time we have had on our hands over the last year we had started changing things up in the garage. Putting up nice ceilings and walls. We have completed almost the whole garage, one wall to go! But what was driving me crazy is that there was a large white blank canvas just sitting there. We discussed a few different options. Maybe paint it one solid color? After thinking about it though, it wouldn’t give it that WOW factor we were really looking for. Having a friend paint some sort of mural on the wall? My husband was a bit worried that it would look to childish for a manly area. We found Photowall, and my husband and I absolutely loved how many different options are available for you to choose from.
My husband and I debated so many different options, but the one that stole both of our hearts was the Road To Mount Cook option. Ordering was a breeze. We measured out the space that we were going to be putting this beautiful wall mural up at. I simply entered in the height and width dimensions and I was good to go. The real surprise came when my package arrived from Photowall. I was so impressed with how thick, and what fantastic quality that the wallpaper actually was. I remember being young girl and helping my grandmother do some wallpaper work in her home. This wallpaper is so thick, and actually makes it so much easier to lay out. They even send you the paste you need to hang up your new mural!
There were only a couple of tools we needed to purchase to make sure we were able to put this wallpaper up properly, and without huge bubbles in it. Before my husband and I started, we made sure the wall was clean where we planned to hang up the mural. We went over the directions to make sure we were all set up. I went in, and followed the directions on the paste to make sure I was mixing it correctly. Since the mural comes in rolls, it is important that you separate it and cut them out. This also makes it hang a lot faster once you get going.
My husband had to do the handy work to make sure the first tile was hung correctly. After making sure the first tile was going to be square the rest seemed to have been a breeze. We would coat the space with a nice coat of wall paper paste. Not super thick, but thick enough that it would stick. Then we would have my husband at the top, and me at the bottom, making sure to not get wallpaper paste on the wrong side of the tile. It took us under two hours from start to finish. Which doesn’t seem bad, especially since I personally thought it would take us much much longer.
I loved that each tile is numbered to help keep you knowing exactly what goes where. I also love that because it was such heavy duty wallpaper, it made it easier to make sure it was in the proper place. No worries of rips and tears. Our finished product has wowed everyone who has seen it so far. It is such a beautiful piece of art on the wall. And looks so much cooler than your average accent wall. I love that Photowall has so many options, so you can find something for each room in the house if you wanted to.
