Paint is the central element in most faux finishing projects, however it is not the only one. Besides being messy and time-consuming, it is toxic-smelling and can be complex, requiring multiple coats.

Faux finish wallpaper is an excellent alternative to paint...plus it's more durable.

  • According to industry statistics, wallpaper lasts considerably longer than other wall finishes--a life span of 7 to 10 years versus 2 to 3 years for paint.

But how can you just tear paper, dip it in water, and apply it to a surface to get results like this?(Click images below to enlarge)

Introducing PaperIllusion®
the Latest Evolution in Wallcoverings

PaperIllusion® ~ The easy way to faux finish!

Achieve that Faux Paint Finish with PaperIllusion®

This innovative paper by Village Wallcoverings can be applied over any clean, flat, dry surface. Including walls & doors, ceilings & floors, furniture & fixtures, counter tops & cabinets and even sheet rock & paneling!

PaperIllusion® Room Shot

There's a textured effect built into the application as a result of overlapping the torn pieces.

So, unlike regular faux finish wallpaper, uneven, cracked or damaged walls are no problem for PaperIllusion®.

You can just cover them up!

This easy-care product is also completely washable and a breeze to remove.

To remove just moisten with warm water and repeat until the pieces peel off.

Paper Illusions Wallpaper
A Perfect Wall Covering for Wood Wall Paneling!

PaperIllusion® Before After Paneling Room Shot

Unlike with regular wallpaper, Paper Illusions wallpaper does not require a wall liner over paneling to camouflage the grooves, provided they are 1/4" or less in width. This wall covering for wood wall paneling bridges the gap!

Just prep the walls properly: wash with TSP (recommended), rinse well and let dry. Then follow up with an application of a good quality wallpaper primer (Zinnser Guardz is recommended). Your paneling is then ready for an easy and pleasing extreme makeover.

It's so easy and doesn't take a lot of time. With two little ones home with me I can't do projects that are too complicated or time consuming and this was neither. It was very simple and I've gotten a lot of compliments on it.

I used PaperIllusion® to do my bathroom floors as I couldn't afford to ceramic tile them. Everyone who sees them is simply amazed. I did the bathroom walls tuscan red and used Multi on the floor as my fixtures are beige and the Multi has some burgundy flecks in it. It turned out beautiful... It looks like I installed a stone or marble floor. I used Satin finish Poly. What a difference. (click images to enlarge)

I just resurfaced my kitchen counter yesterday with PaperIllusion® wallpaper...I am SO happy with how it turned out. Total cost was only $50 and it completely changed the look of my kitchen. I was very skeptical when I read about using wallpaper, but I (and my husband) love how it turned out. I highly suggest giving it a try. I am not a "crafty" person at all and this was a breeze. Here are some pictures of my finished countertops... (click images to enlarge)

...I was very hesitant to do this for fear of hating it and having to buy new countertops in the end. We love it though and have had rave reviews from everyone who has come over. People just can't believe it's wallpaper. At $50 total cost and about 5 hours of time I recommend it for anyone who hates their current counters.

We used the paper we bought from you to redo our kitchen walls (put up over primed wallpaper that wouldn't come off). We put a few coats of satin polycrylic over the top to protect it from spills. I took some photographs (pictured below) during the process for the heck of it... We're very happy with the results, and glad to be rid of the plaid!

I really like this product. The walls in our home were damaged from years of abuse, and even though I repaired them, painting was really not a good option. I found this product and have done two bathrooms, an entry hall, and a formal dining room. Each in a different pattern, each in a different color, and each with a very different look. This product is very forgiving and covers little imperfections with ease. It is very simple to apply and the scraps can be used for room accessories, I covered the matts on pictures and reframed prints. I even covered the cold air return grates so they would not be so obvious. I really highly recommend this product to anyone who wants a very stylish look that is easy to get.

I have been using the various paperillusions wallpaper colors for the last 6 or 7 years. I love them because they look funky and are extremely easy to use, more so than regular wall paper. I also like that you can easily stick a piece over another piece at a later time if there is a mark or damage to the original, rather than having to rewallpaper the whole wall or room. I have used it in my last few houses and love it, though it is very difficult to find.

~ Michelle Bowden

Paper Illusions is so fun to use. We actually have used it in 5 rooms now and love the look and get so many compliments. We have talked several people into using it. It is so easy and actually fun to do. My daughter and I find it relaxing and rewarding! Try it and you will be hooked.
