Wallpapering Idea - Small Torn Pieces

I just finished helping a friend wallpaper a bathroom and in all my years I don't think I've ever seen a more unique type of paper anywhere. She got the idea from a Lowes store.


Insted of hanging wallpaper in strips you tear pieces out of the paper and you hang it piece by piece until you've covered the wall. No design just torn pieces. She used a tan and white design that had script writing that resembled pages from a journal. This gives a nice textured look.

At the top and around trim you use the straight edge, so there's no trimming or cutting, perfect trimmed edges. You probably wouldn't want to try this with a floral print but a stone looking design or something similar to what she used. It was beautiful.

A friend of mine did her bedroom that way except she used brown paper bags torn into random sizes and shapes, crumpled up, then smoothed out and glued onto her wall. It looked like leather when she was finished...So neat.

It's great! I've used it myself. It hangs REALLY easy and the results are stunning!
