Can’t find the ideal wallpaper? Why not use fabric to decorate your walls? Applied inside frames, borders or below moldings, the fabric will add a warm feel to your décor all the while hiding the wall’s little imperfections.
What you'll need :
• 3 meters of fabric, Mandala 2042, code 6571 (to cover 3 frames of 61½" x 30")• Mod Podge type glue• Foam roller• Scissors• Measuring tape
STEP 1 :
Measure the frames. Cut the fabric pieces according to the frames’ dimensions. Make sure to calculate an additional ½" all around on each piece.
STEP 2 :
Apply the glue on the entire surface of the framed wall using the foam roller.
STEP 3 :
Position the fabric on the wall and flatten its surface to remove any air bubbles.
STEP 4 :
Apply the glue on top of the fabric, make sure to cover its entire surface, to seal and solidify it.
STEP 5 :
If you wish, affix moldings all around the fabric edges to create a nice finish. The fabric must be installed prior to the moldings.
A great look even without moldings!
Installing moldings is not mandatory. However, since the fabric may fray, it is recommended to install quarter-round moldings or a ribbon on the edges of the fabric for a nice finish.
Fabric availability is subject to change without notice. Any drapery fabric is suitable for this project.
