MANHATTAN NEST HAS MOVED. THIS POST CAN NOW BE VIEWED HERE!
Love the fabric covered windows. Lovely process. Up until the last line I was completely engaged. 🙂 xxoo
Thank you! Obviously there will be no nudity, I just didn’t want to disappoint the crowd who reads for the risque subjects I tackle. Just tryna please.
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.
Dan, your apartment is looking great!!
the door looks fab
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.
Flippin excellent idea! Gonna give it a go…somewhere? Apartment looks great, thanks for sharing.
Reminds me a little of shoji, which I love. Very nice.
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.
