I have loved the Coronata Star wallpaper for years, but it’s expensive. And it’s wallpaper.  And I have so enjoyed the many clever wallpaper hacks from stenciling ceilings to creating your own cut outs with fancy machines that I don’t own. These women are my heroes, one day I hope to be just like them. Unfortunately, I’m selectively lazy so I’ve been waiting it out to see if an easier solution would ever come along. And then this week, after clearing off my surfaces and getting rid of my beautiful distractions for the great 30 Days Without Home Accessories Experiment, I finally noticed that I had a project to finish.

And I had an easier way to get my Coronata Star look. It took 15 minutes and about $15.

Finally. I finally found inexpensive vinyl stars in a whole slew of colors from Walls Need Love. The stars are actually symmetrical, I had to take that above photo at an angle to get rid of a glare, so they aren’t really tall and long like this picture but you get the idea.

And I popped them up on the tiniest ceiling in the house. No measuring, no gluing, no painting no pain. And if I start to hate them I can easily remove them. I only used about half a sheet of the stars so I can put the rest on gifts, randomly place them around the house, whatever.

Most awkward angle in the history of the world. Imagine me lying flat on the floor. But there’s not room because this space is so small, so imagine me lying flat on the floor on my back in the fetal position taking this photo. You are welcome. You are worth it. Done!

  1. And a Star is born! It looks fantastic! Love it! :0)

  2. I have to say, I was unfamiliar with the Coronata Star until now. I think is going to go on my “what I learned in June list.”
    They are lovely. And make me want to spruce my laundry room.

  3. I love it!! Way less hassle than wallpaper & EASY! Thanks for sharing :)

  4. I really really wish you would have your husband grab another camera and take a picture of you taking that last picture….

  5. You did a fantastic job… you can admire it as you wait for the final spins of the washer so. You can get it in the dryer! Love your posts!

  6. OK, I must do this somewhere in my house! Love it!

  7. Looks so pretty just like all the inspiration photos.

  8. This is my kind of DIY project! I think even I–with all my left thumbs–could handle this. Ha. Love it! :)

  9. Bravo!!! Seriously where were all these vinyl stars when I was cutting 170 of them for Reed’s nursery ceiling?!? Your’s look great and I love them in black.

  10. I love this! I have my studio space painted a high gloss dark blue and just ordered stars for the ceiling! Can’t wait to see how they will look. Thanks!

  11. So fun! Love the stars!

  12. These are fantastic – it looks great!! When my Oldest son was small we had glow in the dark stars and some planets – on his ceiling. I like these better. ;) I was not familiar with the Coronata wallpaper but this is great inspiration, thanks! xo

  13. LOVE this. Too bad we have popcorn ceiling… I’m going to start tackling the removal of all of that this summer… maybe then I can hang some stars. :)

  14. So pretty! I’m already filing this away for the future when we don’t have textured ceilings :) I love it.

  15. Brilliant – this is much easier than stenciling walls/ceiling! Thanks for sharing!!

  16. LOVE IT! Hey, there’s nothing wrong with lying on the floor in awkward positions to get a great ceiling shot. I’ve lain all over Hearst Castle doing it…not to mention various churches and public buildings all over the US and Canada! LOL

  17. LOVE that paper too! Thanks for sharing (and finding) such a great resource!

  18. Love it! And love that they’re easy to put up and take down! Who wants to mess with wallpaper on the ceiling? It’s hard enough on the walls.
    Is that a chalkboard wall I see? Too bad my “laundry corner with the exposed water heater and accompanying exposed pipes” has texured walls and ceiling!

    Hahaha you made me laugh!! You are so funny. I like you a lot and I don’t know you haha :)
    You have a very pretty home and I enjoy reading your posts! so thank you

  20. I love these!!!! I want them on my daughters room. In gold. Against pale pink walls. Love them!

  21. L.O.L! For real. I am sitting here at my desk on my lunch break literally dying with laughter. Because I was imagining you lying on your back in front of your washer and dryer. And then you completely painted a mental image of what it really looked like and I couldn’t handle that. I’ll be honest, I read your blog for the awesome home decor tips & ideas and the way you write appeals to me. But when you choose to show your humor, you really crack me up.

    And btw, I love the stars. Especially on the ceiling and I love the idea of putting them on the ceiling in a nursery.

  22. That’s awesome! Thinking of a place to put them in my house…

  23. What is the spacing of the stars on the Osborne and Little wallpaper?

  24. Magnificent goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you’re
