Blik Headboard Update

I wrote here how I ordered Blik’s Olivia “headboard”.  It’s been an insanely busy winter so it took a few weeks to even take it out of the package and temporarily tack it up on the wall to make sure I place it in the right spot.  It had been hanging on the wall like this for at least a week.  I can’t decide if I like it because I’m too lazy/ busy/ scared to remove it from the backing and stick it to the wall or I really like the blue- I think it adds some needed depth/ color.

Henry wanted to help.

Anyways, this morning I finally got around to peeling it off the backing and sticking it to wall.  It did not…. go well.  It really is a two person job.  It was like saran wrap when it starts sticking to itself.

STOP.  GO GET ANOTHER PERSON TO HELP YOU.  WAIT.  THERE IS NO ONE ELSE BUT THESE SUCKERS.

They weren’t much of a help.

FRUSTRATION.

I DON’T NEED A MAN TO HANG THIS FAKE HEADBOARD, DANGIT.

Voila.  Not too great.

Verdict:  It looks great from far away but up close you can see all the crinkles and air pockets and wear I ripped it in some places and wear hair accidentally got stuck in it.  It wasn’t pretty.  But darn it all I put it up myself.  I think there products really could be great, you just need two people for these larger things.
