So Easy a Caleb Could Do It

I find it ironic that my last post was titled “It’s Been Too Long” and then here I am writing my next post nearly a year and a half later πŸ˜‚. Well, the creative process apparently comes slowly to me…

But hey, I gotta be real here and if I don’t have blog worthy content I sure as sh*t can’t be spending my time putting up mediocre material. By the way, do people even blog anymore or is everyone’s Instagram account now the blog avenue? Don’t worry, I already know the answer.

Anyways, had to share this DIY project I completed because I feel people need to know how easy this is to add a little upgrade to their household.

For the record, a #DIY pre-req in my house 🏠 is that β€œit has to be so easy, a Caleb could do it!”
A little mantle upgrade πŸ”¨ happened this morning – I used β€œE-Z Wall 4″ x 36″ Vinyl Peel & Stick Planks” from Wayfair and it took me less than two hours to complete from start to finish, including prep and clean up. I had a baby 8 days ago so TRUST ME I have zero interest in doing a project that requires a lot of time or technical skill. 🍼 πŸ•° 😴
Tools Needed: Utility Knife, Level, Tape Measurer & Pencil

The β€œplanks” (shiplap inspired) are peel and stick vinyl boards that last up to 20 years. The only technical skill involved is cutting them to size when necessary and staggering them. The video on the Wayfair website for this product shows you how to do it with a utility knife and it literally is as easy as it looks. πŸ‘€ Even better, only four tools are needed: the utility knife, a tape measurer, level and a pencil.

Definitely a nice way to add accent to a living space without a large budget. My mantle wall area was 36” wide by 52” tall so the boards fit seamlessly and minimal cutting was needed. I ordered three boxes of these and only ended up needing two, and my total spend was $174 which included shipping.
Cortlan likes the new look. βœ… πŸ˜‰
