Nadia loved everything about her new rental except for the very...err.. loud wallpaper in the bedroom so she came up with a temporary DIY way to style it to her taste. Heads up, renters, you can so copy this one.

From Nadia:

I loved practically everything about our new home, except one thing: this seizure-inducing wallpaper in my bedroom! Unfortunately, this beautiful, wonderful place I’m so glad to call home is also a rental which means, I can’t replace (or rip and burn!) the wallpaper. Oh, the joys of being a renter!

I covered up the ugly pattern with wallpaper that is more my style in a manner that is rental friendly - I tacked it up with clear pushpins. I’m a terrible crafter but I found this DIY to be simple enough to do by myself. I love how my room looks now! It is the essence of calm and cozy.

Thank you Nadia!
