    Your Grandfather, my dad, was always puttering around with stuff. More with cars and fixing stuff than the decorating thing, but he is looking down and getting such a kick out of you and your projects. You got that gene from him.

    I have used this method on my living room wall to cover wood paneling. But I love this idea of using it in this way. It turned out fabulously.

    I love you enthusiasm for details!!! It’s so nice to know that there are other people in this nutjob of a city who geek out over removing the paint from their door knobs in a rented apartment. You give me the courage to sand down my caked on, dried-while-dropping paint from my window frame and repaint… Great blog, thanks for sharing with us.

    Living in South Texas, my first thought was, If I do this, will the cockroaches be hanging out eating the cornstarch?

      Oh, believe you me, cockroaches are no laughing matter in New York either! Since you actually use such a small amount of the mixture in the end (most gets removed when you squeegee the fabric onto the surface being covered) and it dries really quickly, I don’t think this is something to worry about. At least I haven’t noticed anything snackin’ on my doors.
