Removing old sheets of wallpaper can be a major pain. Not only is it an extra step to take in the midst of a remodel, but the paper may adhere to a solid wall rather than a layer of drywall. Removal is extremely difficult and may even damage the structure
Embossed wallpaper has such a.rich and fancy look that I love, I am a huge fan of regular wallpaper pasted on lots of things, including furniture, but were I to do dresser drawers like these, embossed would be my definite first choice.
Applying fabric to a wall with liquid starch is a great solution for renters and commitment-phobes alike. A bit time intensive, yes, but the results are just about as good as it gets. And unlike wallpaper, you can take it with you when you move!
