Fabric Wallpaper

Happy Day, Friends! Today I have the EASIEST DIY ever, like ever, ever. Fabric Wallpaper. I have been dying to add a little bit of personality to our small built-ins in our living room. I searched the earth for the perfect wallpaper and I found it but, I would have had to sell Harper to pay for it. And, I love her, so on to Plan B: Fabric.

You’ve seen this done, here, here, and here. It’s not new but, sometimes, in my experience with Pinterest and Blog tutorials, things are easier said shown on a fancy blog than done. So, I was hesitant, but since I don’t have the disposable income to buy crazy expensive wallpaper, I decided to give it a shot.

What you need:

Fabric

Liquid Fabric Starch

Paint Roller

Paint pan

Foam Brush

Cutting utensils- I used a rotary cutter and a utility knife (make sure to use a fresh blade)

I went to Joann and got a few yards of this Nate Berkus fabric. Nate never disappoints and I have used his fabrics for some of my favorite projects . It was 40% off so, it ended up costing me about $30.

I followed this tutorial. Mandi outlines two different techniques in the post. I went with the liquid starch technique because it looked easier. The only thing I did differently was to roll some starch on the wall prior to putting up the fabric, it just made it easier to keep the pattern even while I was pinning it up.

I did end up having some bubbles after everything dried, so, I went back over those areas with the roller and it took care of the problem. I let the fabric dry overnight before I cut away the edges which seemed to work really well. That’s it! Super easy (in real life) and I adore the way it turned out!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope you take some time to unplug and enjoy your family, friends, and the Gilmore Girls. I for one will be binge watching instead of shopping on Black Friday.
