* bleh blik

Posted on May 5th, 2009 by maitreya. Filed under Home and Garden.


Remember the blik sticker headboard I posted a while back?  Yeah, I won’t be doing that again.  We’re moving yet again, so it’s got to go.  Besides being annoying to put up, turns out they’re annoying to take down too:  1.  it’s taking frakking forever because the design is made up of hundreds of little stickers and 2. it took some paint with it in a few places.  Not good!  The whole point of using it was because it was supposed to be renter friendly.

    Aaaahhhhh.
    How awful.
    Can’t wait for you guys to move into a place permanently! Then you can put up anything that you want and never have to take it down!

    i’d heard of putting up fabric with a starch mixture, mostly entire walls but also:

    We took down some Blik too, and it wrecked our wall. :( Such a drag.

    I have always wondered about the removability. It seemed to good to be true, that they just go up, then come down with no damage. Sorry about the hassle.
