Apartment Living

So Wesley & I have decided to re-sign our lease at our apartment. YAY! I really am so excited, I did not want to move and we aren't ready to have the OTP (outside the perimeter) life. So no more procrastinating projects! I am going full force ahead with decorating. This is one project I have been DYING to do, and could never get enough motivation to do it not knowing how long we would be staying there. Of course, APARTMENT LIVING= NO PAINTING!!! UHHH!
I woke up Saturday on a mission and now DONE!

Really crazy I dont have a true before pic, but here is the start of the project.
I bought a HUGE roll of contact paper from Home Depot and cut the size stripe I wanted.

Then started at the ceiling and added stripe by stripe

I had lots of helpers!

We measured and marked and went again.




I have an idea for the wall over our couch, it might take a little while to get it together, so you"ll have to check back to see my progress.


  1. OMG that looks great! Can't wait to see it in person - I have always loved tone on tone fatty stripes!

  2. Wow! really makes a huge difference and makes the couch pop!

  3. This is amazing!! I am dying to do stripes and this seems a lot easier than painting! How did you get that idea?

  4. I LOVE IT!! You inspire me...but the only problem is now I want to redo my house! Looks amazing...go Hollie!

  5. I can't believe you did that with contact paper! It looks awesome and a creative solution to not painting in an apartment.

  6. That looks great Hollie! Thanks for sharing!
