DIY Fabric Accent Wall


Supplies Need

  • Lightweight cotton fabric
  • Liquid Starch
  • Paint rollers
  • Paint pan
  • Push pins
  • Rotary blade

Life in a rented space doesn’t have to mean white walls devoid of personality, or seventeen nail holes from a fleeting attempt to hang a picture.  In a matter of hours, this simple and cost effective take on wallpaper will add texture and depth to the most bland of spaces.

Start by measuring the height and width of the wall. Order enough yardage to create panels that will spread across the entire wall + extra just in case.

Pin the fabric to the wall leaving 1" of extra fabric at the top and bottom (you'll trim this later). 

Pour liquid starch into the paint pan and begin to roll the starch onto the pinned fabric. Be generous with the starch.

Pin your next panel, being sure to match up the pattern and repeat the liquid starch step. Repeat this step until all the panels are up.

Let dry overnight then trim excess fabric with a fresh rotary blade.

This method is removable and perfect for rented spaces. To remove carefully peel fabric away from the wall.
