A Quick, Easy, & Cheap DIY to Cover Ugly Wall Spots
The Story of my Bathroom
My bathroom is UGLY. I am not going to lie. It was the one room in the house that I hated when we bought it a year ago and it was in the top 10 things we needed to do after we bought the house. Then life happens, dryer broke, crawl space sewer smell, job loss, etc. So this project is currently on hold. I redid the other bathroom in a quick fix a week or two ago and had started planning this bathroom but first I need some serious cash. Then my husband mentioned that the lovely cabinet above the toilet was about to fell off the wall, so down it came. This emptyness left a big ugly spot on my wall and since I am planning on redoing the room in the next year there is no way I was going to repaint, repair or do anything that cost a lot of money.
My 15 minute, $15 fix
I headed out to the local fabric store to find something that would work for the colors in the space. Armed with my 60% off fabric coupon. I bought a large canvas and 3/4 yard fabric. I already had a can of spray adhesive laying around so that is all I needed.
I ironed the fabric to remove the folds and wrinkles. I cut the fabric so there was about 4 inches of excess on each side.
I than sprayed the canvas with he spray adhesive and laid the fabric on top, gently stretching it to the edges and smoothing it out to cover the top of the canvas and removed any wrinkles.
I then flipped it over and sprayed the edges and wrapped it like a present.
I let it dry for a bit and then hung it in the bathroom with come command picture hanging strips I had on hand.
Looks Great for now
The easy fix will keep my wall looking fresh and normal until I have the time and money to gut the room. This room we already know is going down to the studs and I can't wait to get started on it.
