Restyle It - Wallpapered Fireplace Surround!

Guys! I am just so pumped to share my latest secret way to easily restyle and change up the look of your nonfunctioning fireplace tile surround. Wallpaper!!! You may remember that I painted the tile on my fireplace surround this summer with a palm leaf print, and while I love the palm leaf and didn't want to paint over it, it didn't really wouldn't translate well to fall, Halloween, or Christmas. So to give my fireplace a quick makeover for the fall and winter season, I turned to my new favorite home decor item, adhesive woven wallpaper from Spoonflower! I was able to use one of my own designs to make a tile look alike pattern that is just perfect for Halloween.


Isn't it amazing?! And it looks so much like tile! The best part? It took less than an hour to install! And since it is such a small space, I was able to wall paper all the tile with less than one roll. I can guarantee you will be seeing this space get made over for every season now. 

The process is pretty straight forward too, just cut the wall paper to size using a utility knife  and then peel back a portion of the paper backing and press it onto your tile. Then use the included squeegee to gently rub the wallpaper into place and remove any air bubbles. Work your way down until it is all adhered. Then move on to the next piece. Repeat until your entire surround is complete. It should be noted that my fireplace has a smooth tile surround (that is faux brick you guys!). Spoonflower recommends their woven adhesive backed wallpaper only be used on non textured surfaces like flat walls and tile. I don't think the adhesive would work well with a brick or rock fireplace surround. 




And if you loved the rainbow pumpkin mantel I did for fall (which you can see above), you will love this Halloween version. The addition of the wallpaper, a few paper bats, and a few leftover googly eye balloons, gives this space a whole new look! 

So, what do you think, will you try wallpapering your fireplace surround? I haven't tested the wallpaper around the fireplace with an actual fire in it, but its great to change up the look during those nonfunctioning months and you can always use battery operated candles as you see above or fill your fireplace with balloons, pumpkins, or any other fun decor item to really make it pop.
