I love, love, love hearing from readers about the tutorials they have tried, seeing pictures of their projects, and getting their opinions on tutorials I have posted. A few months ago, I did a tutorial on DIY Removable wall paper using liquid cornstarch as the adhesive. This project is perfect for people living in rentals, dorm rooms or who change their style frequently (ahem...moi)! To get the tutorial click here.
I got some e-mails with pictures from friends and readers who tried it and loved it. I wanted to share a couple. The picture above, is a wall done by my friend Jackie and I, in recipes, for a kitchen/dining area. Can you believe that's stairwell, base-housing?!? It looks so cool and swanky! This project works great with fabric, sheet music, recipes, book pages, letters, anything!
Below is my current and old rental home.
The wall in the photo below was done by the talented Mrs. Gretchen Talley!
One of my favorite readers (who has become a friend) Cathy, had to remove her fabulous wallpaper, because they were being stationed elsewhere. She said it came right off! For the pieces that didn't tear right off, she simply used a wet rag and scrubbed it off without any damage to the wall.
So my friends, wallpaper away! If you want to do this project using fabric, I recommend washing the fabric first so the dye in the fabric doesn't bleed all over the wall when it gets wet with the adhesive.
I am off to work on some more DIY projects! What are you working on this Sunny Saturday? I am dying to know.
