Sharky Tea Infuser By Pablo Matteoda

got this from the design zen blog…

Pablo Matteoda own words: “INFUSION means to extract certain properties from an soluble ingredient such as tea leaves , herbs or fruit by soaking in liquid (water) until it gets saturated. So we can say that a infuser is the in charged of make this happen. This is a ludic point of view about the color given off from the phenomenon, which makes more interesting the waiting of the whole process.”

with common masking tape. The subtle yellow against the eggshell white resulted in a sophisticated dining room that nobody would suspect was created with!!

How about an aluminum foil treatment? Using glue and a hairdryer/heat gun, you can give your wall details a metallic finish.

Mod Podge Wall Treatment: an AT reader used tissue paper, mod-podge and cut out images to transform her bland work place bathroom walls into a textured wallscape with lots of personality.

you can use pages from old books, magazines, postcards, greeting cards, sheet music…just about anything…and make your own wallpaper. Mix some Elmer’s Glue and some water, and you can apply knowing you’ll be able to remove this treatment later with some some warm water and a sponge.

fabric wall treatment

scissors and liquid starch and bring some warm texture and colour without permanence

fabric wall panelsatla041508-bestwalltreat-10_small

If the idea above sounds a little too involved, you could always just stretch and mount complimentary fabric panels onto foam core and hang them on the wall using double stick poster tape. It’s like FLOR tiles for your wall.

using a huge tiled poster size panels or even your picture though it sounds weird!
