Create a Focal Wall (that Will Hide Imperfections) for Less Than $6!

$6
3 Hours
Easy

I was in need of a relatively quick and extremely inexpensive idea to finish off the ceiling in a room that has a few old cracks in the plaster. I needed a solution that didn't require any power tools and wasn't going to take as much time as caulking and spackling and sanding and priming and painting. (That idea is just exhausting! Especially on the ceiling.) I had initially thought old book pages would

    Hello, I'm currently renting a room. The room has naked drywall and I can't afford to paint so I was looking for a cute/creative wall covering. This is it! However, is this difficult to remove? Will I damage the drywall at all? Would you respond to my e-mail please? Thank you! Shaneeka Shaneekathomas@gmail.com

    I think you have created a wonderful new look for a lot of us who own older homes. Wow! Great job.

    I think I would add a coat or two of a tinted varnish or shellac. Speaking as an artist, that slight tint would give it an antique feel, and would blend everything together as one unit, like in a painting.
