My Dream -- Velvet Walls


Have you thought about troweling on a velvet like plaster? Totem Coatings makes a very lovely easy to use one.

My Dream -- Velvet Walls


Sounds very beautiful and luxurious, but practically speaking, that fabric will be a dust magnet. If nothing else, that could be an eyesore and maintenance nightmare with a dark, rich color. Would have to assume you don't have pets if you are considering this. You may also develop allergies to dust, sleeping in an environment with so much in the way of textiles.

Be very careful with your outlets. You might want to check with the local fire code and inspector when planning this.

I agree with twiggy...get velvet drapes instead...
btw, my LR and DR are suede covered walls that we did back
in the seventies...you have to use wood firing strips on the top of the
ceiling, the bottom of the wall, and the side walls. the fabric widths
have to be sewn together and stretched tightly then tacked(stapled)
then the molding gets installed. About 15 years ago we painted over
the suede and have been painting it since. it still looks beautiful
cause it was stretched tight when we installed it. It has a very rich look
if installed properly.

Valvet creates stunning effects on the walls of your house. It is not only makes inspiring textures but also provides protection from severe weather changes, Alkali and ultra violet rays. It is good looking as well as stylish and a nice experience.

But...staying on top....Velvet is hard to clean and holds odors....

lol, I'm wondering if 3 years later, the original poster is regretting their decision on the velvet. A cleaning nightmare. I'm sure it will also pick up any scent in the house whether it be bad or good

Like they are going to come back here and admit it?

Some of the home improvement shows crack me up...like "Design on a Dime"...

They show all these 'cheap' ways to re-decorate.....looks good on camera...but they don't show you what it looks like a year later...

I remember one example...they took a sheet of vinyl flooring....turned it upside down and painted it. Looked pretty good....but they didn't show anyone walking on it....or mention how long the corners and edges would stay down....
