DIY Removable and Reusable Wallcovering: A Renter's Dream

I’m sort of obsessed with the entryway to my modestly sized Brooklyn apartment. Sure, it’s pretty small, but there are so many good things about it — a high ceiling and two large closets among them.

There’s just one thing that has really bugged me about my entryway since the moment I’ve moved in: the walls. They are just so … white.

I am somewhat comforted knowing I’m not alone. Boring white walls are the conundrum every renter faces: To paint the walls (and then have to paint them back) or not to paint them.

My entire apartment has white walls, and my boyfriend and I have found a way to make them work by adding colorful pieces such as mirrors, photos, shelves, and paintings. But the barren walls in my entryway were really bothering me; they just needed a little more drama.

And then Casart Coverings entered my life, and my dull entryway issues were resolved. The company creates really beautiful and reusable wallcoverings that are easy-to-remove, so you can peel them right off when it’s time to pack up and repurpose them at your new place. They come in all patterns, colors and styles, and they’re recyclable and made in the United States.

I love the look of stripes on a wall, so I decided to order them for my entryway from Casart Covering’s nature-inspired, Karen Robertson Collection. The stripes are available from 3 to 24-inches wide, and there are 35 colors to choose from!  Each stripe can be installed vertically or horizontally, depending on the look you’d like to achieve. All without needing to tape, measure or paint, and you can even reposition them easily.

I’m going to go to town with my stripes, and install them vertically and evenly-spaced. But there’s no limit to what you can do with them, which will make a striped DIY wall project in your home great fun.

They’ll be a part two following this post, as I plan on sharing how my striped entryway turns out! Now I’m just anxiously awaiting the arrival of my stripes; and counting down the days until I don’t have to look at white walls upon entering my place.
