I just got this little update sent into me and I wanted to share it with you. I like this feature especially because it is a temporary quick fix that can be done in an apartment or, if you can’t splurge on the whole deal, but need a lift. Check out what Liz of The Chronology of Him and Me did to update her rental kitchen:
and Its spring break. We are not laying on a beach.
However, I am trying my best to distract myself and refrain from wallowing in vacationless-spring-break-self-pity by taking advantage of these nights sans night class and get some things done in our house that I can’t do when my time is devoted to staring at a textbook.
We live in a little farm style house. We LOVE it. However, the home is not ours and the overwhelming majority of walls in the house are a lovely shade of stark white. As a result, I am constantly looking for landlord approved ways to make the place interesting when we can’t paint, re-do, or alter anything.
So…in one of my many google-quests for removable/reversible decorating ideas for our house, I discovered the directions for homemade fabric wallpaper, so I tried it.
Here is what you need:
-Sponge or Paint Roller
-Container to pour starch into
-Not pictured: Patient husband who allows you to follow through on your harebrained decorating schemes
dip your sponge in it, then start wiping the walls with it.
To remove, all you have to do is soak the fabric with water and it will peel off.
Happy Spring Break/Home-Makeover-No-Vacation-Distraction-Week to you and yours.
Hope its a great one!
AND this idea, could work anywhere…
