Paper a Wall, "Tablecloth" a Window

Ideas 6, 7, and 8 come from my daughter's girly, bohemian room.

A couple of scrapbook paper "books" and some border wall paper paste and you have a fun and funky wall. I had intended to leave more open spots, places where the wall color (blue) showed through, but it didn't work that way. I used some chipboard letters to spell out words such as read, play, love, dream, joy (my daughter's middle name). I spent about $35 on this wall.
The second idea here is the $3 thrift store table cloth turned curtain. I used tacks to attach it near the ceiling.
And idea #8 is the holdback for the curtain. I am sure you have seen silverware used this way. We added some ribbons and Christmas garland crystals to the fork for a little extra bling.
I have a few more projects to show you from her room soon. Thanks to those who linked up for my first linky party--you can still join the fun and have a chance to win a set of felt coasters--see the post below.

Oh, and Happy birthday to my OLDER sister if you are reading this--I love you!
