paper walls

After all the recylcing ideas last week, we have moved on to ideas for using paper this week.  But today's idea involves a little bit of both.
The wallcovering in this room was created using paper grocery bags.  The process is done by ripping the bags into pieces and then applying them to the walls with wall paper paste.  It is a simple, easy process just like paper mache' in grade school  This idea does not work great in bathrooms or kitchens where there is a lot of water or cleaning, but in bedrooms, hallways, offices. etc, it holds up just fine.  I love the warm brown color and the interesting texture.

Thanks for the comment! We love to hear from you. We do moderate them first so that is why they may not pop up right away. Thanks again.
