The Wall Doctor wallpaper backsplash just might be the budget friendly farmhouse kitchen decor idea you’re looking for! It’s quick, easy, & durable.
When we were working on our DIY kitchen remodel, we wanted to add some interest to the space with a new back splash.
We checked out various ideas and options, and loved the look of bead board. However, since we don’t own the house, we didn’t want to install something as permanent as actual bead board on the back splash area or the wall across from it.
Our search led us to an incredible product – Wall Doctor beadboard wallpaper.

(Update July 2020: The pictures online no longer show the packaging, and it seems this wallpaper is now owned by Graham and Brown. I have linked that brand in hopes it is the same thing!)
I agree! It just might be an old house’s best friend…
Stains and splatters wipe off easily
Years have passed since we first installed it, and I must say, I’m so impressed with the durability of this wallpaper back splash. Although it is paintable (another great perk), I never even painted it, but it wiped off really well. And although we live in a relatively humid climate, it hasn’t started pulling away from the wall in any area.
