Modern, peel-and-stick wallpaper can be used to decorate a lot more than your walls. Furniture, appliances—any flat, smooth surface you want to turn into an eye-catching conversation piece. For renters, students, and homeowners who move often, it’s a budget-friendly decorating tool that adheres on contact and removes without damage or leaving residue behind. Check out these inspired ideas to breathe new life and your personal style into every corner or your space.

1. TABLE TOPPER

Upload your own photo to use instead of a tablecloth for a birthday, or find a seasonal image to decorate any table for the holidays. Peel-and-stick is easy to wipe, clean, and remove. Buy mural: surprise party

Show your serious about your home office space. Transform that plain wall behind you into a real background for video calls. Buy mural: leaping pages

3. MAKE DOORS LESS DRAB

Create a standalone piece of faux canvas art or hangable collage by applying peel-and-stick wallpaper on cardboard, wood, or glass mounted inside some old frames. Buy mural: skater boy

A simple, yet oh-so-clever way to turn any generic-looking nightstand into something chic and unique. Give your bed’s space mate a facelift by applying textured or patterned peel-and-stick to drawer faces. Buy pattern: chevron zebra

Love that old dresser but not the color and style? Peel-and-stick floral patterns and geometrics deliver the same artsy effect of paint and stenciling without the time-sucking dirty work. Buy pattern: flourishing

8. REFRESH A SERVING TRAY

For any boring, old serving tray crying out for some love. When not helping serve drinks and breakfast in bed, a tray dressed up with peel-and-stick can be displayed on a kitchen shelf as a piece of eye-catching décor. Buy pattern: gold vibes only

9. RESCUE A COFFEE TABLE

Restore some dignity to that old workhorse of living room decor. An easier route than refinishing, peel-and-stick wallpaper can deliver an easy and instant makeover to coffee tables that are old, out of style, or just plain worn looking. Buy pattern: welcome to the 50's

Adding richly patterned or colored peel-and-stick panels to back of bookshelves and built-in units delivers an inviting, curated look to books and objects on display. Buy pattern: handsome herringbone

11. ELEVATE YOUR CEILING

The fastest way to change your space from “ho-hum” to “holy shi!t.” Ceilings are a forgotten frontier of interior decorating. And with peel-and-stick wallpaper, there’s no faster or easier way to add some glamour to yours. Buy mural: gray day

Under the stairs. At the end of a hall. Weird architectural corners and nooks too small to put a comfy chair. Peel-and-stick wallpaper lets you turn the walls of those tricky spaces into something special in seconds. Buy pattern: art deco dance

16. DRESS UP YOUR CLOSEST

Bright, neutral closest colors—white, tan, gray, and beige—are favored by designers because they strike a starker contrast between the closet’s walls and its contents. Try lightly patterned peel-and-stick wallpaper to give yours contrast with a little more class. Buy pattern: posey patch

17. UNDER THE ISLAND OR BAR

Decorate that blank space under a kitchen island or long breakfast bar with a fun pattern or floral. Cheaper than a tile or wooden kick wall, peel-and-stick makes a louder statement and is still just as functional in helping hide scuffs. Buy pattern: oriental tile

18. CHECK YOUR HEADBOARD

Modern headboards protect the wall behind your bed from scuffs and abrasions. Give your old wooden one a personal touch. Or create the illusion of a headboard with a large square of peel-and-stick behind the bed. Buy mural: mountain mirror

Easily revitalize an old desktop and personalize with your workspace all at the same time. Peel-and-stick makes it simple modern styles and patterns to help you take on the world. Buy pattern: multi-directional

If you’re a renter with an ugly yet still functional refrigerator, removable wallpaper is the fast, and easiest solution for jazzing up the look of an old icebox without fear of losing your security deposit. Buy mural: suspension

From eyesore to oasis for quiet times. Turn and unused or out-of-code fireplace into a focal point in your home or apartment by placing candles on the hearth with stone, brick or tile pattern peel-and-stick behind. Buy mural: white out
