RoomMates Peel and Stick Wallpaper is not just for walls. I gave this Computer Desk a makeover using RoomMates Peel and Stick Wallpaper. This product is so beautiful and versatile.

After painting my den/sewing room, my desk screamed to either be replaced or updated. RoomMates Peel and Stick wallpaper to the rescue.
To start off after the new paint job, I shopped thrift stores for a used desk and office supply stores for a new desk. Sadly, I didn’t find anything that I liked. My desk was still in good shape. It was just dated. Painting is my normal go-to plan. But it is laminate which means multiple coats of chalk paint. And I was being lazy because I didn’t really want to unload EVERYTHING then paint then wait for paint to dry then then paint again then distress and then reload.
I had nearly a full roll of RoomMates Distressed Wood Peel and Stick Wallpaper let over from another project! TaDa!!! Being the Queen of contact paper, I knew this would be a snap.
I adore RoomMates Peel and Stick and have used it in multiple projects. It is repositionable. it adheres well but is super easy to peel off and start again. Or if you are ready for a different look or style, simply remove it and apply a different style or pattern. I especially love their country selections. For the computer desk, I used WHITE DISTRESSED WOOD.
For the projects pictured below I used the BLUE DISTRESSED WOOD.
I knew that this desk makeover would require more than the roll that I had on hand, so I purchased 2 more rolls. If that was too much, I could return the extra roll. As it turned out, it was exactly enough, literally!
I made a video which shows the process. Actually there are three videos. You will need to visit my channel to see the other two. Be sure and check it out.
After the large areas were covered with the RoomMates Peel and Stick, I had a hard time deciding whether to cover or paint the facing pieces and shelves. For a test to see which I would prefer, I painted a small section with “Elephant” Chalk Paint,
another section with “Plaster” Chalk Paint
and one section I used the Peel and Stick. Kitty No had no opinion.
After several days of “living” with the color choice assortment, we (me and the Guitar Man) decided that the Peel and Stick was the winner.
So, I got busy and covered the facings and the shelves. And I am so glad that I did. It looks great in this space. I love it against the GRAY WALLS.
Don’t you love it when one thing leads to another? So now, I need new lampshades
and drawer pulls.

Now, I guess this calls for a junk hunting or a little shopping trip!!!
’til next time,

Does it leave any sticky residue when you remove it? Would it be safe to use on college dorm desks?
No, it does not leave a residue. It is designed to be able to remove it without damaging the surface. I would think it would be safe on a dorm desk.
