I’ve received so many questions and comments about this DIY I did for our past home, the Murray Project, and have finally put together a tutorial along with sources for some other wallcoverings that we love! 1. Purchase a wood canvas from your local art store. Once you know the dimensions, order a wallpaper that you love and compliments your home.

I didn’t want it to be over powering, but loved the boyish combination of leather, shiplap and plaid! I also really wanted to personalize the space for him, and incorporate some of his favourite things. (If you haven’t seen the before images yet, you can view them here!) We were working down to the wire on installing the shiplap ceiling, but it was so worth it! I love the texture and character it adds to the space. We ended up going with 8″ MDF planks and installed… Read more »
We are nearing the end of this challenge, and I’m more then excited to see this boys bedroom come together!
