Hey - I totally stole your awesome idea and did an accent wall in a similar way (only, I made mine checkered...).  But, I don't know if it's the humidity or what, but my pages are buckling Sad

Any ideas on how to get them to lie flat? I used several rolls of double-sided scotch tape that doesn't seem to be holding.   I thought about using contact paper - but I don't want to mess up my paper.

Help Please?

it occurs to me that some double stick tape is simply just sort of crappy. i imagine that if one piece of it isn't holding properly, then immediately there's lots of strain put on the other pieces, and the whole thing goes kerflooey.  i used just regular scotch tape shaped in a little roll - you know what i mean, i can't come up with the right word for it.

I think you are right - it's probably just crappy double-sided tape (and I thought I was saving time...HAH) Tongue

I will re-work it.

I'm about to post mine up.... check it out.... and thanks for the fabulous idea.

You rock, you genius, you!

Like Rocka311, I also used calendar pages to decorate a wall- I bought the calendars in Feb so they were super cheap. However, I think that calendar pages are a bit heavier than scrapbook paper, because the pages all fell of the wall! Or maybe it's because I used putty stuff instead of tape. Nonetheless, calendars often have famous paintings for cheap.

I totally stole your idea for my new room (just moved to a new apartment). Mine's not as "crazy"--I stuck with a basic color scheme to match my comforter--but I love how it turned out:



Thanks for the idea!!
