Shehzeen tells us, “I love a home with personality. If I had all the time in the world, I’d probably even make all the furniture for my house (I could be in need of therapy).” We feel you, Shehzeen. Just look at what this crafty lady did with these blank walls.

From Shehzeen:

I don’t like big budget solutions (unless someone hands them to me, in which case I am happy to possess) and I like an eclectic vibe more than anything so I did this wallpaper solution in my living room. It’s easy, quick (kind of), inexpensive and most of all super impactful. I simply took an already disintegrating book, took the pages out, started in the bottom left corner of my wall and started putting them up with wallpaper paste, one by one vertically. I won’t lie, this project literally broke my back and was completed in 4 hour increments over three days, but the end result was so super impactful. I would say yes to it again in a heartbeat.

Thank you Shehzeen!
