I've been a renter of my current home for a little over four years now. Although the landlord usually does the big overhauls, I try to upkeep the place with minor improvements. A couple of years ago I applied a new surface to my main kitchen countertops with faux granite paint. Although it looked good at the time, it had gotten to a point that it was looking more like a dirty mess than pretty granite.

I was recently given the opportunity to try WallPops' revolutionary new line of peel-and-stick wallpaper. It gave my kitchen countertops a whole new fresh, updated look.
Printed on premium substrate that will never your damage walls, NuWallpaper allows both homeowners and renters alike to transform any room in minutes. And better yet, it can be completely removed in seconds.
One section of kitchen countertop completed. Looks much, much better.
From stylish geometrics to damasks, faux woods and brick, florals, global chic patterns, tree designs and more, there is a design for every room in your home. I went with the blue and white geometric pattern of the Byzantine Peel and Stick Wallpaper.
Each NuWallpaper comes on a 20.5-in x 18-ft roll. Applying the wallpaper to my countertops took some time and precision but it wasn't a hard task to do. It's important that the area where the wallpaper is being applied to is clean and dry. Using a precision cutter, I cut off how much of the NuWallpaper I needed for each area. Slowly and methodically, I removed the contact paper from the wallpaper so it would stick it where I wanted. From time to time, I went over the wallpaper with a credit card to remove air bubbles.
My countertops look so much better with the NuWallpaper.
After applying the wallpaper, I was impressed with the end result. I was able to complete the task on my own and I wasn't cursing while doing it. The detailing of the wallpaper is intricate and makes a bold statement. I have some NuWallpaper left over and plan on using it to update an area on my kitchen wall that could use a new look. Although NuWallpaper is primarily used as wallpaper it can also be used for other décor and art projects.
