Window Shade

Wallpaper Shade

Try that daring wallpaper you love on a window instead of an entire room.

This project works best on shades 27 inches wide or less (the width of a standard roll of wallpaper); otherwise, you'll have to match the print exactly where it meets at the seams. The shade will be difficult to roll up and down, so use this technique where you can leave it down -- perhaps to mask a less-than-inspiring view.

• 1 to 2 rolls of wallpaper
• Scissors
• Tape measure
• Sponge roller (available at any paint store)
