I live in a rented townhouse and the whole place is painted white including the kitchen and bathroom. I can't afford to repaint but I need a cheaper way of putting color and class to my living room wall. What can I do?

    You could stencil one wall. It is easy and inexpensive. I have used gathered sheets with a tension rod behind a bed and as a shower curtain. I also like the idea of thrift store shopping. I have found a lot of cool thinga while shopping there.

    if you can't afford art work, look in fabric stores for something you can use as wall hanging, even towels. Buy the dowel from a timber mart. Have a go at painting over some art work you buy from an op shop. Take a photo of something on your phone go home and paint it on a sheet....

    • I like your idea, you can even pull fabric into long strips and slip knot them onto a rod so that it looks kind of rustic with the raw edges and different lengths. I also used solid color sheets that I found at a thrift store that I tie-dyed.

  • Use "Command" hooks and hangers - sold at hardware stores, most drug and grocery stores here in the states. They do have weight limits but if you go for some of the suggestions posted here, and follow the directions on the command products, you can fill up your walls in no time! Good luck and have fun!

    I have not personally tried this, but have read that you can dip fabric in starch and apply to the wall. It will stick to the wall. When ready to move, simply pull the fabric off.
