She recently renovated this room to be her home office/craft room but it needed a little something extra.
So I teamed up with Photowall to add this gorgeous floral mural wallpaper to her ceiling!
This was my first time hanging wallpaper that was not the peel and stick kind & y’all I am a fan!
This wallpaper was so much easier to work with, even with putting it on the ceiling.

How To Hang Wallpaper On The Ceiling
- Wallpaper (I used Poeme DAmour)
- Wallpaper Paste (Photowall Includes It)
- Roller/Paint Brush
- Clean Bucket
- Exact-O Knife
- First dust the ceiling to remove any debris. Remove air vents & light fixtures that will get in the way.
Photowall also recommends you lay out each roll of the mural first to ensure you are installing them in the correct order
2. Mix the wallpaper paste. Photowall supplies the packets with each purchase. 1 pack of paste mix per 1 gallon of water.
The paste should be thicker & not watery.
3. Start on the left side of the room, using a brush to apply the paste to the corners & edges of the wall.
4. After the corners are painted with paste, use the roller to apply paste to the ceiling. Work in small sections at a time.
5. Butt the wallpaper flush against the wall making sure to lay it flat & even on the surface. Smooth the paper out with the scraper as you work along the wall.
When hanging wallpaper on the ceiling it’s crucial to have a partner to help you keep the sections straight & also hold up the weight of the wallpaper while you smooth it out.
6. Use an exact-o knife or sharp box cutter to cut around vents & light fixtures.
Tip: Be careful not to overlap the seams on the wallpaper, just but the edges up closely together or the seam will bubble.
That’s it y’all! How gorgeous is this DIY wallpaper ceiling!?
I could stare at this ceiling mural all day!
The best part is that this wallpaper is 100 times easier to install than peel & stick wallpaper. It is so nice to be able to adjust the paper once it is applied to the ceiling.
