Paper a Wall, "Tablecloth" a Window

Ideas 6, 7, and 8 come from my daughter's girly, bohemian room.

A couple of scrapbook paper "books" and some border wall paper paste and you have a fun and funky wall. I had intended to leave more open spots, places where the wall color (blue) showed through, but it didn't work that way. I used some chipboard letters to spell out words such as read, play, love, dream, joy (my daughter's middle name). I spent about $35 on this wall.
The second idea here is the $3 thrift store table cloth turned curtain. I used tacks to attach it near the ceiling.
And idea #8 is the holdback for the curtain. I am sure you have seen silverware used this way. We added some ribbons and Christmas garland crystals to the fork for a little extra bling.
I have a few more projects to show you from her room soon. Thanks to those who linked up for my first linky party--you can still join the fun and have a chance to win a set of felt coasters--see the post below.

Oh, and Happy birthday to my OLDER sister if you are reading this--I love you!

  2. What a really cute idea for the walls and window coverings. I've got scrapbook paper out the wazoo from my days of making invitations. I'll have to do my daughters room this way. Thanks for sharing.
