Today I’m back with my friends Mary Ann and Cindy with our favorites of the week. I got a little carried away with how much I love Tempaper peel-and-stick-removable wallpaper and I am sharing five ways I used it this week. It started with wallpapering one wall in my office. I spend a lot of time in my office and making it a space that brings me so much joy, made a lot of sense. Once we wallpapered, the rest just fell into place.
Five ways we used Tempaper Rick Rack Stripe Wallpaper designed by Nesting with Grace
I chose Rick Rack Stripe that was designed by my friend Brooke Christen of Nesting with Grace. Brooke designed a line of temporary wallpapers for Tempaper, and each one is so perfectly Brooke, but also very adaptable to many different styles and purposes. I used photos of my kids, my collection of pink Glassybaby votives, and the art they created when they were very young to complete the space. Today I’m sharing how it made my office a place I love to be and how I used the leftover pieces in a few creative ways!
Brooke said the RickRack Stripe design was inspired by Mudcloth, which of course, I love, and the colors are perfect. Gold can be tricky, but she got it just right! I love how it looked on one wall in Brooke’s family room and knew that it would look perfect in my office. The art is all kids’ art from when mine were little, and somehow, it’s all in my favorite colors of orange and yellow, which works beautifully with the Aztec Gold. You can read Brooke’s post here!
Stikwood & Tempaper make it Cozy
I added a chair on each side of the desk. When my son was home from college over the holidays he would come to stand in the doorway and talk. Once I moved a chair into my office, he stays longer….which of course I love!

1. Office Makeover
Tempaper is a temporary wallpaper. It’s perfect for homeowners and renters. It’s not messy to install, and taking it down is even easier. It doesn’t leave anything behind on the wall, so renters enjoy it and then remove it when you leave, and no one will even know! It’s amazing how one wall adds so much warmth to space. I spend a lot of time at my desk, and every time I see it, it makes me happy! What space can you imagine using it…to bring you some happiness!?

4. Added to the lids of Ball Jars
I used the removable lid from a Ball canning jar and cut a circle of Tempaper to fit the lid. I made a sugar scrub using Lemon and Rosemary essential oils.Print
This is the easiest recipe for a sugar scrub. You’ll want to keep one in the shower at all times!
- 1 cup raw sugar (I buy the coarsest I can find, but to start, you may want to look for one that’s a little more fine)
- 20–30 drops essential oil (I used a combination of lemon and rosemary, but I like grapefruit and peppermint too)
- Sweet Almond Oil
- Add the sugar to the jar and then add the essential oils.
- Pour the Sweet Almond Oil into the jar, saturating the sugar.
- Add more oil or more sugar until you get the consistency you like.
- Use daily on arms and legs for smooth skin
5. Gift wrap and tags
Using Tempaper for gift wrap might be my favorite thing! I cut shapes using craft punches and the back removes easily so that you can apply it to a gift or punch a small hole and use it as a tag with some twine. Bar soap from Young Living is one of my favorite products…and I love to give them as gifts. Wrapping a box of soap is easy and fun! Read more about why we love essential oils in this post.
