Looking for a quick, easy and interactive update to your tired craft table? Spoonflower President Allison Sloan Polish visits the blog to share how she updated her art room table using coloring book inspired Peel and Stick Removable Woven Wallpaper.

Allison: My three boys—Jackson (8), Dillon (6) and Maddox (4)—just love spending time in our art room. Collectively, it really is our happy place. The old wooden top table in our space has the marker and paint scars to prove it.

I was hailed “Super Mom” the day I revealed the newly-reclaimed art space to the kids and was exalted to “Best Mom in the Whole Wide World” the day they got home from camp to find our dingy tabletop transformed by designer Diane Frazier’s Color Me Floral coloring book design on Spoonflower’s Peel and Stick Woven paper. We found success coloring the paper with Sharpies and other art markers from Staedtler, Uchida and Tombow.


My boys get so excited when I come home with new wallpaper for our art table. It’s one of my very favorite ways to connect with them. We put on music and color for hours; it’s amazing the conversations we have.”

Turn any tabletop into an artist’s workspace with Spoonflower’s Peel and Stick Wallpaper. Affix and color for hours of entertainment (and easy, removable clean-up!) It was simple to install and an absolute blast to color.  I hope you have as much fun as we did!
