I have been heavily inspired lately by runny, streaky paint-like textures and I wanted to share two similar projects I have been working on.
My New Super Cheap Wallpaper Project
(this is hopefully going to get hung Sunday)
I found this wrapping paper at Homegood's.
They had so many awesome patterns to choose from.
Very impressed, they get high fives.
Best part, it was SO cheap, and I love to be cheap.
30" x 12'.
heck yes. would have bought 10 rolls if they had it, but only got 3.
Think it is going in here...
(that wall was painted over a year ago, so its about time for a change in my book)
...and yes, my office is a massive shit show.
I am going to try using a spray adhesive first so I can peel it off if I get tired of it.
I that doesn't work I will have to use paste.
The next easy project is painted drapes.
Inspired from Porter Teleo (they rock) and their Tangled design:
I had to make some drapes for a photo shoot for work, so I grabbed some white cotton IKEA panels and Black RIT dye and made these babies:
To do this make sure you put plastic under the panels first.
It gets REAL messy if you don't:
I mixed 1 part RIT Dye with 2 parts warm water in an empty squeeze bottle.
You don't need the bottle, I was just hoping to squirt the lines, but that was a big messy mess...
Definitely could have been cool, but it would need to be done outside
since it squirted EVERYWHERE.
(project for spring)
I grabbed a paint brush and poured some dye mixture in a bowl and started painting my lines.
Keep everything on a plate to catch drips and move around the fabric.
and just paint until satisfied without a plan.
I let it dry flat for 30 minutes, then I hung it for the remainder...
Think I might do this in a color for my own house when the reno is done.
I am off to make lasagna, drink wine and watch a movie.
Happy weekend peeps!
