Before & After: The Glue and Brown Paper Makeover

Tatertots and Jello

There aren't many things that don't look awesome covered in brown paper and although we're usually talking about table tops and the like, these stairs are no different. That's right, the after photo of these stairs show them covered with crumpled up brown paper and glue! Check out their final look and see for yourself!

This project from Rachael over at Lovely Crafty Home was featured over at Tatertots and Jello for all the hard work put in on this amazing staircase transformation.

The process is simple. Acquire brown paper, tear up brown paper and glue brown paper. After that a sealing coat was applied (though you could stain before this step if you so desire) things take on a shiny appearance and the look is complete. We think it's an inexpensive project that could even be done with grocery bags if you so desire and is an easy way to breathe new life into a space without shilling out large amounts of hard earned cash.

The look might also be a good one for walls, floors or possibly even blocks of space on a wall (for instance you could define a headboard area in your bedroom without having to build or buy one!). Check out the full tutorial over at Tatertots and Jello, it's a process you'll want to check out for sure!
