I have read different articles on how to do this. What method did you use? What did you use to stick it to the wall? I was thinking about doing something like this in my kitchen, too.

Liquid starch. It worked like a dream and cheap and easy to clean up.
Pre wash/dry your fabric to shrink.
have a very sharp razor knife and good scissors for back up.

My mind is going crazy with what to do next.

I did something very similar to that by covering almost all of the cupboard doors in the glamper trailer with fabric. However, I used Mod Podge and the result is great!

Did you spray on the liquid starch or brush it on?

What I love about using liquid starch is if you get sick of it or what to change your theme it peels right off. I tend to change my mind a lot

Spray bottle and then used a dry 4 inch paint brush to smooth out.
The cotton was easy I did a burlap one too I had to use a lot more staples with it. I got it up but the spray method was really messy.

My daughter did two of the walls in my granddaughter's bedroom with fabric. Looked awesome!

LOVE that fabric!! Any chance you have any scrap leftovers? Even a sliver of that would make nice ribbon! Or a supplier who sells that? Thank you!
