How to Attach Fabric to a Wall Using Liquid Starch

Materials

  1. lightweight fabric in a pattern and color scheme you love; a sheet will work.
  2. undiluted fabric starch such as Sta Flo
  3. sponge or paint roller
  4. large container

Instructions

  1. Wash the fabric. Dry and iron it out.
  2. In the meantime, measure the area you want to install the fabric. Add about 2 inches to this measurement.
  3. Tape off this section of the wall so you will know where to place your fabric. Wash down this section of the wall so the fabric will have a clean surface to stick to.
  4. Cut your fabric to the dimensions of your measurement in step 2.
  5. Pour starch into a clean container. Cover the section of the wall you will be covering with undiluted liquid starch. Use a sponge or paint roller.
  6. Place the fabric onto the area where you applied the starch. Move it around to get the placement right.
  7. Starting at the top and working your way down, apply starch to the fabric.  Smooth out any air bubbles with a paintbrush or your fingers.
  8. Allow fabric to dry before using.

How To Remove Fabric Wall
Peel up a corner of the fabric. Use it to gently peel the remaining fabric from the wall. If it does not come off easily, use a wet sponge or rag to dampen the fabric a bit. Continue to wet and peel.
