10 Printable Real Wall Wallpapers!

Photo: Poppytalk

Since we’ve been renovating our home I’ve been looking for “temporary fixes” for problem walls that we’re not yet ready to permanently paint or paper yet.  Anyone who has lived in a renovation knows what I’m talking about; sometimes it might be budget-related and you can’t yet fix a room the way you want yet or maybe it’s a domino effect; you can’t fix one problem until you finish another.  Well for us it’s both and so to deal with it I’ve been resorting to papering some of our problem walls (this one in our hall), another is the downstairs bathroom with temporary wallpaper solutions.  I’ve been loving the nautical look this spring so I created this printable paper using vintage ship photo’s I’ve found on the flickr commons site.  The result, a cool paper that is so easy to apply to a feature wall.  Obviously you can’t cover large walls, but this idea is a great fix for smaller areas – and fun thing —it’s also perfect for Father’s Day wrapping paper! With that in mind I went hunting for other printables you could do the same with.  Click below the jump to get links to (the one above) and more printable or budget-friendly wallpaper ideas!
