And what should appear on my Google Reader this morning? This post from Shelterrific about using masking tape as temporary wallpaper!
Shelterrific links to Jenny at Little Green Notebook's entryway transformation; Jenny was inspired by harlequin patterned wallpaper and a friend who used floral tape to recreate the look. Jenny bought Japanese masking tape from HappyTape (the Japanese are no doubt the experts at making mundane objects cute!) and got to work.
Trying this in your own home seems pretty simple. Sure, there's some geometry involved, but if you can keep your lines straight and your spacing even, you should be good -- and after all, it's just masking tape! You can always lift and reposition your stripes if they're not quite right.
