Covering a less-than-perfect wall with an attractive fabric is an old decorating trick that you might already know. Using liquid starch as your glue may surprise you. It’s cheap and easy to add some colour to a wall, under the wainscoting, or inside an alcove.
What you need:
- Fabric to cover the area
- Bottled liquid starch
What to do:
- Select a fabric that is medium to light weight. Cut the fabric to the lengths needed and soak the cut pieces, one at a time, in a tub filled with liquid fabric starch.
- Press the fabric to the wall as you would if wallpapering, smoothing out wrinkles, and allow it to dry.
- When you want to remove the fabric, simply pull it away from the wall and rinse away any starch that remains on the wall with a sponge or wet towel.
