A few weeks ago Photowall reached out to me about collaborating on a home decor post. I looked at their beautiful wallpaper and fell in love. They have so many prints and options fun options available. A few weeks ago Photowall reached out to me about collaborating on a home decor post. They offered me a canvas or wallpaper of my choice. I don’t have room for more art at the moment and I couldn’t wallpaper our rental.

Since I rent I knew covering an accent wall or doing a room was completely out of the question. I tried to think of a way to use wallpaper in a nontraditional way. What could I cover to transform a space, I thought as I paced around the house looking for a project. Then I walked into the kitchen and my eyes landed on our old white refrigerator. The target had been located.

This is what it looked like before. It’s just a basic white fridge. I knew a pop of color would look good here.

After looking at all the wallpaper options on Photowall, I landed on this Mostly Cactus Pink paper. It fulfilled my love for pink, prints, and cacti all at once.

At this point you might be wondering how I attached wallpaper to a refrigerator. I planned on using using Mod Podge to apply the paper to the fridge and didn’t have a backup plan. I used the outdoor/exterior formula and it worked perfectly. Before my wallpaper arrived, I tested several pieces of paper. Each piece held great and when I ripped them off the next day, all of the Mod Podge came off on the paper, not the fridge.

I didn’t take photos during the process because I had to work fast. Mod Podge dries very quickly. The process was simple. First I removed the handles from our refrigerator. Then I applied Mod Podge with a sponge to the fridge and quickly lined up and pressed the wallpaper down.

I was very careful to make sure everything was lined up before I pressed down the paper. You really only get one shot to make it right. I used regular scissors to trim around the top and edges. I had to be precise, but overall this DIY was easier than I expected.
