dirty wallpaper with rips, affordable creative fixes


hello everyone! i was browsing the net to find some cool ways for home improvement and i found this great forum.

well, i just moved into my studio, and the people living here before me did not take care of the home very well. i have done a lot of cleaning and the place is looking much better, however, the wallpaper is still bothering me. it is a cream colored vinyl wallpaper. it had a lot of stains, so i've been scrubbing them out. the big stains are all out but it still looks a bit dingy. there are also rips on the wallpaper that i want to cover up. anyone have any cool creative ways that i can spruce up the walls? some example pics would be awesome!

thank you!

I just read a really cool article, I think on the Material Girls blog, with Nate Berkus. He suggested using linens soaked in starch as wallpaper. You can use any material & it's an affordable option. He should have instructions on his site.

Try hanging pictures, or maybe putting a piece of furniture infront of the rips. Or maybe making a fun unique piece of wall art. (like this maybe?) You can google "homemade wall art" for some really cool ideas too! Hope this helps!!

Use fabric cloths to make homemade art. This way you can choose different fabric patterns and different wall art sizes. This will make your room interesting.
