It is time for a laundry room refresh!
Our laundry room is next to our front door, and sadly, it is the room where we put all of our mail, junk, and miscellaneous things.
Our poor laundry room.
It is time to get it back to being a tidy and functional laundry room!
I also wanted the laundry room to look more appealing, because I am hoping that if it looks appealing, then maybe I would be more encouraged to do laundry?
I know, I know…wishful thinking!
My favorite thing about this laundry room makeover was…
*drum roll, please…*
It so was easy!
I also saved SO MUCH MONEY AND TIME by making my own wallpaper!
I did not have to use any wallpaper paste or get stressed about aligning the wallpaper sheets/rolls on the wall. It was great!

This cost me $0 to make.
Yep! All of this cost $0.
I did this makeover during Quarantine 2020, so I used whatever I had in my house. Which was actually a fun challenge! My husband was happy that I didn’t spend a dime. LOL.
What Materials Did I Use?
Step 1: Cut Your Foam Mat or Sponge!
I cut 3 small rectangles (10 cm x 1 cm) from the kids foam mat and then added craft glue on the “bumpy” side of the play mat. You want to make sure you add paint on the “smooth” side of the play mat.
Step 2: Glue it on Cardboard!
Place your glue on the “bumpy” side of the foam mat and attach it to the cardboard piece.
Wait for it to dry, before using it!
(I know, you are tempted to test it out right away, but patience is key, right?)
Step 3: Test It Out on Paper!
This step is optional, but I highly recommend it!
Once the glue is dry. Test out your stamp.
Dip your stamp in your paint and place it on your scrap pieces of paper.
Then cut these pieces of paper and lay them out on your wall to get a visual of your wallpaper design.
Feel free to tape them on the wall to keep them in place.
Another tip is to tape one of the scrap pieces of paper (with the 3 lines design) on the other side of the cardboard, so you can align it perfectly when you stamp the wall.
Step 4: Smooth It Out!
Smooth out your print with a paintbrush if need be.
Once you are done…pat yourself on the back, because you just created the easiest wallpaper ever!!
