Help me help my buffet!

IMG_3935I’m in the middle of a quick Ikea hack and I need your help. So far I’ve updated the hardware on this classic buffet from Ikea, but it needs something more. I’ve got an idea, but I want to make sure I’m not non compos mentis (THAT’S LATIN FOR CRAZY… AND A DOUBLE NEGATIVE!). 

Okay, now that I’ve shown off my Latin phrase of the day toilet paper (it’s so soft!), here’s my plan– I want to add temporary wallpaper to the cabinet doors. See below:


Am I loco en la cabeza (I did not get that from toilet paper!), or is this maybe a cute idea? Here are the wallpaper options I am considering:


A: Ever-So-Green in Blue/Grey would tie in nicely, I think, with our Mid-Century Modern Rustic look. But, is it too much rustic– am I embracing the Minnesota a little too much? I’m dangerously close to becoming Rose Nylund, aren’t I?

B: Star Bright in Turquoise is so elegant and rich and might class this place up a bit. However, I’ve been accused more than once of acting like an old woman (a two year old used to call me grandma), so I’m not sure I want to embrace that image just yet.

C. Sun Burst in Powder is already featured in our home, so it could either bring the whole living space together, or be the height of just too muchery… I’m not sure! YOU TELL ME!

D. Fancy Four Side in Navy/White is classic and masculine– probably just what this place needs! On the other hand, it’s a darker shade of blue than the rest of the apartment. Will it work? IDK.

Let me know how you feel about this in the comments, or just take the fancy and very scientific poll below!

    I think you should use the green ikat paper from chasing paper
