I’m still chugging along on my living room update. The latest thing checked off the list was to figure out how to get some temporary color on the bookshelf backs. They were just too heavy and brown and have always bothered me a little. But I hated to paint them because I might want them wood again one day.
So, what’s a girl to do?? I wallpapered them!
I ordered a roll of teal colored grass cloth to match the coral printed fabric… (I’ve been itching for a little grass cloth in my life.)
…and went to town adhering it with Museum Putty, of all things. (Found mine at Container Store.)
I measured each opening and the cut the grass cloth. Daddy-O helped me hold it in place while I worked with the Museum Putty. I don’t think this was its intended use, but Sister successfully did it, it will hold the paper, it is removable and it is cheap. Win, win, win, win. You essentially tear off a small piece, roll it into a little ball and then press it flat onto your surface. You put the paper up and have to apply a lot of pressure to get it to stay. It would come undone easily as I was doing it and I felt sure it would all be laying on the floor by the next morning. Well, what do you know, it held the paper and hasn’t budged an inch since.
The rest of the room reveal is coming real soon!
Excited for the feature at By Stephanie Lynn!
