Faux Croc Adds Instant Chic
A little mock “croc” goes a long way to enhance your petite home décor, especially when it comes in the form of very affordable embossed paper. Layering in textures adds a sense of depth and interest to a plain, boxy space. Expect to spend about $4.00 for one 18×27” sheet that comes in a variety of colors. My favorites are the orange and glossy white. Find them at papermojo.com.
The embossed “croc” papers add a touch of glamour lining the tops of ho-hum trays and tabletops. A little double-sided tape under the paper will keep it from shifting and removable. The moc-croc paper also looks sleek as book covers for those resource books that have to be accessible and out on a desk.
Look, There’s More
Old, tired lamp shades look fresh and modern wrapped in glossy white mock croc paper sheets. Plain Jane bookcases look designer with backs lined with white croc. And, dress up an ugly wastebasket in fabulous faux croc. No need to hide it under a desk. Enjoy!
