Paint Butcher Paper for Walls

If you cannot paint your walls (renting, etc.), and are tired of that same, dreary color, use butcher paper to add some color to your home. The butcher paper I mean is the kind on a roll. I bought a roll from, but you may find another place or use something else. Get some paints, preferably watercolors, brushes, a drop cloth, and lath (long thin slats of wood found in most hardware stores).


Using several sheets of butcher paper at the desired length, nail the paper between the lath and the wall. You can paint the paper, and when you get tired of that one, just rip it off and start over!

Also helps cure cabin fever.

Can you post a picture of the papered wall? I'm having trouble visualizing it. Thanks.
