I wanted something different for my computer room. I'm not fond of painting. I used tissue paper as wall paper and love the results!



I used Modge Podge and watered down white glue w/ water when the 'Podge ran out to put the tissue paper on the walls. I randomly placed the sheets of tissue paper on the wall. That's why it looks lighter and darker shades of green. I let it dry overnight and sealed it with clear wall glaze. I did it several years ago and it's holding up great!

What fun!

Do you know how easy it is to remove/paint over in the future, yet? It looks like something I would like to use, but I'm REALLLY not fond of scraping!

I love what you did!
I have done this treatment to a bathroom but crumbled up the tissues then put it on the wall. Gave a lot of texture and covered up the Sheetrock repair job I tried to do.
