Washi tape

13 Sep

So we are supposed to be moving house at the end of the month.  No we don’t have a place yet, that is not an important part of the equation.  Oh wait it is (yes that is slight panic you can hear in my tone).

Anyway … as renters you can’t stick hundreds of things on the wall.  I want to stick hundreds of things on the wall.

Enter washi tape.  I think I am going to have to buy a couple rolls to do a couple amazing displays like these.

Have you ever used it?  I am guessing by how often I have seen it that it doesn’t damage the wall?

Any other decorating ideas for renters?

    Awww we rent houses out and never mind if people want to put nails in the walls!

    As renters we’ve also found washi tape’s ideal to leave no mark on walls! It’s pretty too! Blu-tack definitely leaves a mark though.

    Wow, I’ve never heard of Washi tape, but I’ve definitely seen it before. Such a good idea, and I’m pleased to have a name for it!

    I’ve never even heard of washi tape, let alone seen it in use. Sounds perfect for my bedroom walls. I do get fed up of the marks that blu-tack leaves. Thank you for your lovely comment on my ‘ethical’ style post – so much appreciated.

    I used washi tape for poster and photos when i rented an apartment for a year…generally ok but I left a mark (so I’m not sure whether it’s the quality of the paint or the extreme cold and hot weather in Jiangsu area).
    P/s I stumbled upon your blog which FB(under the name “wasabi tape”) links to. Great blog and I enjoy reading it.

Here is your chance to say something lovely or interesting or wise. Please do, I love hearing from you.
