Just fake it: Do it yourself wallpaper



Every time I go to my local design center I thumb through the gorgeous wallpapers and stare with envy. My current living situation is temporary meaning no paint, no wallpaper. SO what's a girl to do? Get creative. 

There is one wall in particular that just needed a little something fun, and I decided green would do the trick. A few drops of glue, a roll of floral tape and voila, wallpaper in an hour for the cost of a latte. 

Don't you love it when I get all creative on you? 

I'll post a play by play in the next few days.

  8. No way! I totally did something very similar in my rental's entry last week! I used contact paper that I cut into strips - your method looks way better! Maybe I'll take it down and try floral tape??

  9. Looks Good! I like your style. I guess tape (anykind) is good for everything. Now how do I make a fake Thibaut's Sweetlife Fishbowl wallpaper...
