1. Interior Design & Colour Brochures
I did this for the wall facing my work desk and used Scotch Restickable Tabs for Mounting so it wouldn't damage my walls. Much better than my previously white one! The brochures I used were the Taubmans Look Books which had great pictures, colours and design tips on the front and back so I got 2 of each brochure and cut it up to fit how I wanted to display it. On another wall in my room I also used a mix of Dulux, Bristol and Wattyl brochures, colour charts and paint swatches. Yes, I got a bit excited :)

2. Printed Fabric Covered Canvas
Well, let me pre-warn you though, when I did mine it didn't take long to staple together but the hard part was finding the right fabric print and material. This one here is fabric that I got from Ikea. I liked this one since it fit in with my colour scheme, the large print resembled a piece of art rather than the small repetitive pattern of typical prints used for clothing and it was well priced at $9.99 per metre too! You can use printed quilt covers, pillow cases, or an old favourite printed t-shirt.
3. Textured / Patterned Place Mats & Table Runners
Here are some other placemat projects on Design Build Love and So Love That.
4. Toilet Paper Rolls
It's amazing what you can do with the humble toilet roll! Who knew it could be wall art? The example here is from Tali of Imperfectly Perfect . She has great instructions on how to create this. You'll find a heap of others on Google too. I'm keen to try this project out since I am NOT in short supply of toilet rolls :)
Pulling together your stash of holiday or art postcards into a wall art collage adds a nice personal touch and a great way to reminisce and relive those fun travel adventures. The example here is by Melissa of Ideas to Steal.
I wonder if I can do something with ...
