Birch is big. But if you can't afford Cole & Sons Woods wallpaper, there are three DIY projects that give you a bit of birch for less.
Courtney at And Then There was Home made a freehand birch wall mural using white paint.
Katie Steuernagle at Ohdeedoh made a faux birch log side table out of, among other things, wet toilet paper.
A word about this last project. Some of you may be thinking, why not just get a birch log instead of faking it? From personal experience, I know it can take years to find a stick let alone a log in Brooklyn.
I eventually did my own DIY birch using . . . birch. However, I got it from the trash, not the forest. The glamourous city life.
