BEDROOM MAKEOVER | INSTALLING OUR WALL MURAL + A CHIC IKEA HACK

Petite and Bold bedroom makeover

Oh boy! The least we can say is we are enjoying every minute of our bedroom makeover. A few months ago my husband and I ( ok mostly I ) decided we needed to change things up a little bit in our condo starting with the bedroom.

We spend a lot of time there obviously sleeping but also talking, working, having fun with our son. Therefore, we wanted to turn it into a safe haven, a room we would go to for relaxation etc … We thought it would be so great to install a wallpaper on the wall behind the bed, but we did not want just any ordinary wallpaper … enters Pixers. I came across Pixers on Instagram and could not stop looking at the various options they offer.

What we love about what you can find at Pixers

  • Installation is very easy when you have the right materials with you ( they also provide a manual with full details on how to install and a few tools you’d need ). Our budget is not huge so we wanted to install things ourselves instead of having to hire professionals. For that reason the easiness of installation played a big role in our decision to work with Pixers.
  • It’s the best and quickest way to personalize any room. As you can see we went with marble designs, but the cool thing about all this is if we ever get tired, we can easily remove the Pixerstick wall mural and replace it with another one.
  • They promote only eco-friendly technology and recommend only eco-friendly materials, shipping is free and and there’s a 365 days money back guarantee policy. What’s not to love!

THE PROCESS

Our contact at Pixers, Aleksandra, was a charm to work with. Step one was to provide the measurements and photos of the wall + the Ikea chest of drawers ( I actually sent her the link to the chest on Ikea’s website ) and our initial wall paper patterns. Then, the design team came back with visualizations for us. I must say, this is the best thing ever. Given all the options available, it made it so much easier for us to pick our final patterns. I should also mention that the design we picked for the wall in the bedroom had to be duplicated to cover the entire width. But as you can see, everything came together nicely.

Our final picks: THIS pattern for the drawer and THIS one for the wall.

Tips: I would recommend going a little bit over for the measurements in order to have some room when installing.

THE INSTALLATION

We started with the Ikea drawer and it was very quick. It took us 30 minutes to apply the adhesive and we could not be happier with the results. It makes it look so chic and luxe. Right up my alley ;) We received the Pixersticks already designed in the correct dimensions. We used a cutter to perfect the edges and that was it. Easy breezy.

Now the wall took us a lot longer ( approximately 2,5 hours )which is totally normal. I mean, it sure is a big wall. You definitely need at least 2 persons to properly install the wall paper. We started at the top and worked our way down to the bottom. We used a triple-edge guide and our good old hands to smooth the wallpaper and make sure there were no bubbles. Just like for the drawer, we resorted to the cutter for the edges.
