How to cover up walls with removable dorm wallpaper

  • Pull an inch or two of the backing off.
  • Align to the top of the wall. Pro-Tip: It's adjustable so if you mess up, you can remove, realign + reapply.
  • Press onto the wall.
  • Get a friend to pull off the backing while you press down the paper.
  • At the bottom, use a scissor to cut a straight line.
  • Rub out any bubbles or imperfections.
  • Align the next panel and do it all over again.
  • The best part? It can be removed without damaging the wall.
  • FYI: We recommend ~2 rolls per wall!

Hang Up Command Hooks

Find the spot you want to hang up the hook. Remove the wall side adhesive and stick to the wall. Remove the blue liner and press the hook onto the strip firmly for ~30 seconds. Let it sit for an hour. Remove at the end of the year damage-free.
