WALL PAPER.

Have an empty wall... but also a nearly empty wallet? Here's a savvy solution for under $15.

On the hunt for art to fill a 13' gallery wall I recently installed, I ran into Blick to sift through their collection of paperie.  I came across both of these one of a kind, eco-friendly, Lokta sheets that have been collected and hand-silkscreened by Nepalese farmers and Village Co-operatives [ employing and promoting Women Co-operatives ]

 

With the initial intent of cutting them to fit frames, I couldn't help but expose the size [ 20" x 30" !! ] and raw edges which meant no frame...which also meant I was still on the hunt to fill the gallery wall. Wasn't hard to find a new home for these. 

 

No frame? No problem. This is where electrical or decorative tape comes in. Depending on your wall's finish, it may be worth using a hidden adhesive in addition to the corner strips. I used three small strips of double sided tape on the top and bottom of each. 

 

Placed behind our mobile island, it creates a backdrop for our designated 'drop off' station and  seasoned [ as in when we haven't drank all of the wine ] bar cart.
