My bedroom is about 8 ft. x 8 ft., so I'd say it is pretty petite! But thankfully the ceilings are spacious!
To emphasize the height of my room I created this accent wall using a khaki faux woodgrain wrapping paper. I hung it with the woodgrain running vertically to maximize the visual height. The wrapping paper is actually vinyl! The fact that it is vinyl helped me in the hanging process, because unlike regular, paper, wrapping paper it doesn't bend and tear. I bought two rolls of the paper on sale at T.J. Maxx for a total
of $5. Then I hung it up using a heavy duty double sided foam mounting tape. It was a really fun simple project and it has not only made my room feel taller, but has made it feel like home to me!
