DIY Forest Wallpaper

Like My Pencil Box, I have coveted this lovely-yet-expensive Cole & Son wallpaper for years. The perfect solution? To DIY it yourself by sketching it onto your wall with a pencil, and carefully and patiently going over the pencil marks with a black pen. The result is this exquisite wall that the home owners created themselves. A few hand cramps is better than $200 a roll!

    The step-by-step is included in both articles, as it is super-simple. You literally draw it onto your wall with pencil first, then black marker. You can print out an image of the original wallpaper as a guide first here:
    Hope this helps!
