so i JUST moved... and painting my last apartment was such a pain in the bum (let's just say i started it the week i moved in and finished it seven months later Smiley) i wasn't anxious to do it again.  soooo... enter my super awesome idea.  paperaddict.com, site of many reasonably priced awesome 12x12 scrapbooking papers. a little strategic placing (making sure that similar colors and similar patterns weren't too close, yes, i AM that anal) and voila!  my wall!  i totally love it.  i have full mirrored closet doors across from it so when i look in the mirror it's my backdrop.  this was a fairly cheap super easy super awesome way of jazzing up my boring white wall.

I would so love a wall like that!  Good job!

That's brilliant! What a great way to jazz up a boring room! How'd you attach the squares? Did you use wallpaper glue or something?

Looks great! This would be a great alternative for apartments that you can't paint, depending on how you attached it.

how did you attach the paper?  this is sorta like something I've been thinking of doing too because I found some really pretty paper and I want to show it all off Grin  .........your wall looks fantastic & is very inspiring!!!

Wow that looks amazing! The wall in my bedroom that is behind my bed has a ginormous mirror on it, and I've been trying to figure out what I can do to cover up at least part of it because it looks very 1970s (and not in a good way). This could be a good solution for me. Thanks for sparking the idea. Smiley

Beautiful work. how did you attached the paper.. Did you use a sealer?  how long did it take you?

Thanks for sharing!

this is a really fantastic idea.  not too expensive and way less time intensive than painting (or so i assume).

it looks great too!
