Wall Vinyl to dress up the Kitchen

Supplies used:

Copper Metallic Wall Vinyl

Transfer Tape

Squeegee

Masking Tape

Scissors

We have a large kitchen/dining area but it is stretched across the front of the house so we have lots of windows and cupboards but very little space to hang pictures.  I’ve mentioned before that I love fall and Halloween….well, my kitchen is painted in Benjamin Moore’s August Morning.  In direct sunlight it looks tangerine, but in muted light or indoor lighting it is a warm, fall leaves color.  The accents are in cream, forest green, burgundy, dark brown and copper.  I was so happy when I found Copper Metallic Wall Vinyl from KNK USA.

My kids helped me pick out a phrase, then I added a couple of graphics for either end.  I cut it out on my KNK Maxx, weeded the extra vinyl, applied transfer tape, and then taped it to the wall.

Once I had it taped up, I cut it into sections to make it easier to peel and stick.  Then I applied each piece to the wall.

After applying all of the text, I applied the graphics.

And here is a picture from the front:

I discovered KNK in 2009 and have loved the company and its products ever since. The machines are so versatile and enhance my own creativity. It is rare that I make something without my KNKs.

    • I cut it from a nine foot long piece. I ‘loaded’ it, then rolled it back and forth, adjusting it slightly as needed until it ran straight the entire length.

  6. I would have never thought to use metallic vinyl in the kitchen. I love that it seems to change color in the light. Very nice!

  7. Thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments! The only other time I’ve applied wall vinyl to the walls in my house is in my daughter’s room. She wanted polka dots in pink, green, and yellow to match her bedding. As a spectacular bonus, you can use dry erase markers on them!!!! She writes her thoughts, or her own inspirational messages on them – its really neat.

    • Neat idea! You did a spectacular job for being just your second time…I haven’t had the courage to put vinyl on a wall yet. I want to redo my kitchen…this would be a fun thing to add to the decorating! 🙂

  8. What an outstanding way to make use of an overhang like that. The sentiment really pops. I didn’t realize there was copper colored vinyl. I will have to look into that.

  9. wow that is fantastic, I have plans to do an inset in the bedroom later this fall. I will have to post when I get it done. Great job!
