Apply wall art

The peel-and-stick artwork stickers are simple to apply and easy to remove.

For an almost instant decorative touch to a room that you won’t live with forever, an adhesive wall art kit is an easy way to kickstart your DIY skills. The peel-and-stick artwork stickers are simple to apply and easy to remove with no danger of damaging the walls. Think dorm room, nursery, anywhere a permanent wallpaper won’t work.

These are not cutouts of contact paper; they’re stylish designs made of a vinyl peel and stick material in die-cut shapes. The designs are washable, removable and can be repositioned as you apply them to the wall.

A homeowner can apply the design to a 48-by-36-inch wall design for $75, the cost of the artwork. You’ll need a pencil, yardstick, tape measure and level. If you need to cut the design, use a pair of scissors or a utility knife. The walls should be clean free of dust, dirt or oil, and dry. To hire out the job, add $75 for a wallpaper hanger to do the job for a total of $150 for labor and material. You’ll find the designs sold at home centers and the website

Q: Tim, she who must be obeyed (SWMBO) has informed me that the two flat-screen TVs in the unopened boxes must be installed in days. One TV will end up on our bedroom wall, and the other is to go over a living room fireplace. There’s a huge window there. Fortunately, the TV is wider than both the window and the wood trim surrounding the window. How in the world do I attach the flat screen bracket to glass? Do you have any other tips to share about how to get this right the first time? It’s best not to anger SWMBO. Next time you’re near Houston, I’ll gladly take you out for some superb seafood. —Chris M., Tomball, Texas
