I used spray adhesive to glue wallpaper to the back of an Ikea wardrobe/bookcase in an attempt to tidy up all my crafting mayhem in one pretty place. It was a bit of an ordeal, but I got it done, hammered the back onto the unit, flipped it up, took a look at my semi-shoddy handiwork and called it good. I sit down on the couch to my email and my foot feels like it has tape stuck on it, so I reach down to pull it off. Oh no, it’s not tape. It’s spray adhesive that I’ve stepped in (guess there was more overspray than I thought!) and now there’s miscellaneous debris and cat hair glued to my foot!!! Wtf?! I just vacuumed yesterday!
I just checked, it’s actually both feet. ROFL!!! Whoopsies!! So ladies, if you’re using spray adhesive, beware the overspray and maybe wear socks! LOL!!!

Well, that’s one way to get your floors extra-clean. I saw that bookcase idea in Domino (still mourning the passing:( a few years ago and have been dying to try it. I’m sure it looks great. Anything is better than a plain old Billy. lol

@PutABirdOnIt: It was a little tricky because I was just going to use spray adhesive from the get-go, but then Darling Husband said we should actually wet the paper (pre-pasted) and glue it on that way because he had done it for a client that day. Fine. So we did that. But then instead of glueing it onto the laminated side of the board, he wanted to do it on the other side, which I said was a bad idea because MDF warps when it gets wet, but he insisted. Fine. Well it didn’t work. I had to pull the wallpaper off because it didn’t stick well, which was fine because I managed to salvage the paper rather than spend $40 on another roll. This morning I used spray adhesive and put in on the RIGHT side of the board. It looks fine, but a little wrinkled in some spots since it had already been applied and pulled off once. Thankfully my unit has doors 😉
If you attempt it, just go straight for the spray adhesive, and don’t pre-cut the paper to the exact size, overdo it. Learn from my mistakes, lol!!!

LOL I did the same thing in my garage when I installed some leather covers on my door panels! Garage hobbit feet are probably grosser than home hobbit feet, but I’m not posting any photos! 😉
