Most of you saw this photo on Instagram the other day. 18 of you liked it…of which I am eternally grateful…especially since we all know the # of likes you get is equivalent to how cool you are in the real world. amirite?
This is a pic of my new collage wall at the new apt, something I’ve always wanted to do. “Always” meaning for the past 3 years that collage walls have been popular.
It took me 3+ years to actually do this…and it is literally one of the easiest projects ever. Needless to say, I have a tendency to overcomplicate things. And to be lazy, yea that too.
Before, I thought a wall like this would require different sized frames, a bunch of nails in the wall, and A LOT of pre-planning…involving practice arrangements and placeholders on the wall.
But then I discovered Washi Tape. I really shouldn’t say discovered since it has probably been around for awhile now and I am just catching on.
Do you know what this stuff is? Am I the only one? Probably.
Whatever the case, this stuff is fabulous! And as a wannabe fabulous person myself, I am drawn to such.
It is tape. It sticks to walls, but doesn’t harm them. It comes in super fun colors and designs. …Like I said, fabulous!
This Washi Tape discovery and the fact that I was setting up a new space totally gave me the push I needed to tackle this project.
It took about 7 minutes. So 3+ years and 7 minutes later…
The collage wall was born.
Here are some close-ups of what I chose to put up…I love this part about a collage wall, because you really get to express your personality. It also allows you to use all those small and random things you’ve bought over the years that never had a home.
Also…the best part…It can be whatever you want! There are no rules.

So there you have it! Just about all the Collage Wall Hype you could handle on a Wednesday morning. I am now officially running late for my move-out inspection (I’m coming for you shower head…arghhh)…it’s a good day.
Do you have any projects you’ve been wanting to try? Can you re-work them to include Washi Tape? Cuz if so…EASY-PEASY!
Have you always wanted to try a collage wall? The time is now!
The time is now also 10:37…again running late.
