DIY: Removable Fabric Walls

You can use fabrics with charming prints to spruce up your walls


Aside from wall decals and wallpaper—which are both easy to use and replace, you may also decorate your walls using dainty fabrics in different colors. You may even choose materials with fun prints that go well with the theme of your space. 

Since this is not permanent, you can always change the design whenever you feel like giving your room a new look. Let this project guide you.

  1. First, measure the area or wall where you want to add the fabric. Purchase materials that can cover the area but you can also get extra meters just to be sure. No need to worry, as you can use it for future projects. 
  2. Install push pins or staples at the edges of the fabric to secure it temporarily.
  3. Pour liquid starch into your paint tray, then using a roller, start painting a portion of the wall.
  4. Stick the fabric to the wall then paint it over again with liquid starch. Continue this process until you've covered the entire wall.
  5. Trim the edges to create a neat finish.

RL Tip: When you want to change the fabric, make sure you wash your walls with soap and water first.
