Decorate Walls With Fabric

Hello Friends Happy March!  
Do you have a closet or a small wall in your home that needs a little pick me up?  Covering your walls with fabric instead of wallpaper is an inexpensive & damage free way to go.  Using just a yard of fabric I covered a closet wall behind my desk and gave it a fresh new look.      

BEFORE it was plain and boring

Placing the fabric on the wall was a simple process.
I used straight pins and a ruler
I measured, cut and pinned the fabric to the wall. 
I gently tapped the pins with a hammer to the top of the fabric to hold it in place.  I often use straight pins instead of nails because they are small and do not leave noticeable holes in the wall.  
If you want a designer look without paying the high price of designer wallpaper, shop for discount fabric. This black and white stripe fabric only cost me $4.00.

  5. Oh my goodness, I am a nut over stripes anyway, so this is wonderful and no hassle.
    Wall paper is such a huge commitment and I am just not ready to go down that path.
