This one wall in my office (sorry for the quality of the pictures it's a camera phone).  I did this by cutting 1.5' x 1.5' squares out of corrugated cardboard and stapling the corners to the wall with a staple gun.  Then i took twine and covered up the seams in the cardboard and the staples.  I used a hot glue gun to affix the twine to the cardboard, and Voila!  I saw this on the internet a long long time ago but i forgot where or else I'd post the original link.  This was really easy and, except for the holes from the staples, a really non committal way to change up a room.  I did my entire bedroom (all 4 walls) in an apartment i was renting but never got around to taking a picture of it.

Since this is my very first post I can't post images so here are the links instead.

that is so cool. for your office, it could double as a bulletin board! but then youd have holes in the pretty cardboard huh.

did i just say cardboard was pretty? haha you really make it look nice. i really really love it!

I love your take on Jonathan Fong's corrugated cardboard wall.  You did it slightly differently than he does (you can see his at this link http://www.jonathanfongstyle.com/decor/cardboard_wall.html) and I think I actually like yours, with the twine bordering the squares, even better than the original!

That looks great with the green (?) color on the other wall and the bamboo blinds!  I looked at the link, and yours is much better!  I love the twine...what can't you do with twine.  Anyway, it's awesome!

That looks amazing! I like yours much better than that other link as well - the twine really polishes it up. Great first post Smiley

that's really cool. i love the idea of cardboard furniture and stuff. sadly i have silverfish squatting in my place and so cardboard is out (i swear it's not my fault, the neighbour was living in a swamp of sorts, they just come to our place for a vacay!)
