This post is sponsored by Limitless Walls. I contacted them with my interest in their product, and they provided the material for me to review. All opinions are my own.
I try not to be a “follower”. I’m generally late to adopt new trends, sometimes missing them completely (I’m talking about you chalkboard paint. I refuse to submit!). That doesn’t mean I don’t fall in love with some of the hip new things in design, home decor or the crafting world, it’s just that it takes me a long time to warm up to something enough to call it mine and wrap it into my personal style.
The frilly, bright bedroom look with hod-podge and mismatched items has been part of my style for a while now. In fact, some of my first posts were about a master bedroom Hubby and I shared when first married. I love the look of hand me down furniture, bright linens and quirky accent pieces all rolled into a quiet bedroom space. The bedroom of our house is the least modern of all our spaces, and stands in stark contrast to the decor style of pretty much every other room.
I’ve also loved architectural details for some time, even opting to build a fireplace in our new home to add some of that “character.”
With my love of country/farmhouse bedrooms and carpentry character, you’d think I’d be all about the shiplap. And true, I’d die of excitement if Joanna Gaines chose to come make over my bedroom for me – but the thought of nailing a bunch of boards to my clean bedroom wall is just too much. I mean, what if it is a fad? What if shiplap is to homes what mullets were to hair? What if when we go to sell the house everyone cringes at the chippy, imperfect wood slats nailed above our bed?
So, I reached out to Limitless Walls, and asked if they would provide a sample of their product for me to look at. What I got was excellent customer service, and a whole wall of the highest quality removable wallpaper I’ve ever seen. One toddler nap time later – yes, you read right; this was complete in one two hour block – I was looking at this gorgeous DIY shiplap wall.
The base premise for Limitless Walls is custom wallpaper. There are hundreds of pre-designed papers on their site, and they also allow you to print your own custom image. You can choose from several paper types (I went with self adhesive canvas texture) and they cut up the roll into panels that overlap to make the perfect image. I chose their basic shiplap image, and sent them the dimensions of my wall. Limitless Walls resized and adjusted the image to fit my dimensions and the paper arrived well packaged to my house in a little over a week.
I always promise honesty in my sponsored posts, and honestly – the first product that arrived was not perfect. In resizing the image for my wall, a tech missed a couple of overlap areas in my image resulting in a weird dark shape in the middle of my shiplap wall. It was definitely not going up on the wall that way – so I reached out to Limitless Walls customer service.
They were amazing. I had a product that I didn’t pay for, and I told them I wasn’t happy with it. They could have easily said “You get what you (didn’t) pay for,” but they didn’t. My contact Shawn immediately set to work correcting the image and sent me a whole new wallpaper free of charge. The service was above and beyond, totally.
Installation was quick and easy. I lined up the panels while hubby pulled off the self-adhesive backing. We used the included tool to smooth out the bubbles (per the included instructions) and then a sharp knife to cut around the outlets, window, and trim at the corners.
Bonus, since the weird spot was only in one area of the mural, I used pieces from the first wallpaper in my cubicle at work. I have gotten dozens of comments about it, and it really makes my space feel welcoming and homey. I’d 100% recommend Limitless Walls Wallpaper for cubicle decoration. It is a lovely temporary solution and makes a dull workspace so much more beautiful and inspiring.
It has been almost a month since I installed the wallpaper. Since then we’ve had temperatures below freezing and above 80. I’ve even used a humidifier right next to the wall to stave off a terrible chest cough. The self adhesive shows no sagging, no wrinkling, and no signs of peeling. Not even around my 45+ year old windows. I’m beyond happy with this DIY shiplap wall – and doubly happy that I can take it down if I even get tired of this trend.
