What We’ve Tried on Pinterest: Fabric Wallpaper

By September 20, 2013No Comments

Have you ever wondered if a craft or DIY pin on Pinterest really can work for us normal people? Or if that popular recipe really ends up looking that delicious or actually can be made in 30 minutes? Wonder no longer! We’ve started an on-going series at DuoParadigms where we give you our take on some of the most popular pins on Pinterest.

I got tired of the blank wall. Too bad I forgot to take a “before” picture, but this awesome wall used to be white and boring.Katie's Wall 1 No, I did not use wallpaper, and I most assuredly did not paint it on there. It’s fabric!

I saw this post on Pinterest one day and got up from the computer right then and did it! It still looks great a year later!

The only thing I did different from her instructions was that I didn’t use an Exact-O knife to cut around the light switch plate. Instead, I used a screwdriver and removed the plate BEFORE I applied the fabric and then I cut a hole and replaced the plate after I was finished. This gave me a much cleaner edge around the light switch and made the whole process go smoother and faster.

Seriously, it would have taken me less than an hour if I hadn’t had to run to Hobby Lobby for more fabric in the middle of the project!

If you want a different look without the commitment of wallpaper or paint, try this awesome and fast DIY idea! Here’s another image of the finished product.
