A few years ago I was introduced to a wall paper product
I dearly love, PaperIllusions.
Susan and I were opening a booth at a local Antique Mall and
needed a quick fix for the ugly walls.
Since that first try, we've used it many times with
great results.

This is my latest project with PaperIllusions. My living room ceiling.

Before I started the ceiling was in very bad shape. Years ago
it had been wall papered (a practice they use to do in old houses).
It was so old, someone had used packing tape to hold it up.

There were lots of uneven places.

PaperIllusions is very easy to use, you tear it in random pieces
and stick it up. It is pre-pasted, all you do is dip it in warm water
and up she goes.

Downstairs, Susan used it in her powder room.
Doesn't it look great?

Here's a link if you want to know more.
It's a great fix to any unsightly surface.

  1. That is a neat product! I've never heard of it. My ceilings have drywall designs on them. I don't think I've ever been in a house with wall paper on the ceilings. Looks great!

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Hi: I love the way that looks. I never heard of it before. Thank you for sharing. Your home is beautiful. Blessings, Martha

  3. Looks like a great product and easy to use. Haven't seen in the market here yet. Hey, love Susan's powder room!

  4. I've rented old houses with paper on the ceilings - and it gets more noticeable with age. And - with the seams that are left up there! Great product.

  5. That is the perfect fix for bad walls. I may need to do that in my powder room. When I peeled the wallpaper off it left lots of bad places on the walls. First I painted it in a faux finish and then got tired of it. Now it is painted solid, but I can see all the bad spots. I wish my husband would put up beadboard, but so far not happening. Thanks for sharing this idea!

  6. WOW! That really looks great! I'll definitely check on this for a small room I would like to do! Thanks! ♥

  7. This is very, very cool. I am taking notes now. I am a stager and this would be a great suggestion to some of my clients. Love it, thanks so much for sharing...Where can I buy some???
