Fabric Wallpaper

San Francisco Ba...






My newest addition to my tiny tiny apartment is my wallpapered sleeping area. It’s a lot like my last wall decoration, but on a much bigger scale. In the nook for my bed, I added zig-zag “wallpaper,” which is acutally fabric plastered to the wall with cornstarch. I love it because it sections off the room and the pattern adds some depth. If I can’t add more furniture, I figured I’d decorate the walls! For renters, this project is great because it is completely reversible.

    WOW…I love this! When you say it can be removed – does it ruin the material or can you simply wash the corn starch out of it and re-use?

      You can wash the starch out and re-use it! I’ve done it with a smaller project before and it worked great.

    So cute! I had no idea you could use corn starch to stick things to your wall.
