* This is part of our 2017 Renovation Series.
We have a small wall at the entrance to the rear bedroom and bathroom of our Airstream / Argosy that is screaming for an update. The original wallpaper is in decent shape but it is very ugly. This wall needs a fresh update asap!

Knowing that I didn’t want to paint the wall, I narrowed it down to three options: new wallpaper, chalkboard paint or a push pin wall. Wallpaper was more expensive and time consuming than I wanted. Chalkboard paint seems liked a great idea but I wanted a neutral color. So, the push pin up wall became the main idea. Giving my husband the general idea, he came up with the details on how to “build” it.
1. Grab a cheap board of installation from your hardware store.
2. Cut to fit your wall. We decided to leave a cut-out for our smoke and CO detectors. This way it leaves a bit of the original but dated wallpaper behind it.
4. Cut the corners so they wrap easier and smoother. You do not want the extra bulk because it needs to sit as flush with the wall as possible.
5. Install! We decided to use double sticky wall Velcro tape instead of screws or rivets. I liked the look of the plain flat wall so much that I didn’t want to see screws on the face of it.
