Reuse those paper shopping bags

I just wanted to share a cool use for the brown paper shopping bags you get at the grocery store -

I did this myself with about a hundred or so bags saved by friends and from my own shopping trips. It was easy to apply, and took just an afternoon. I simply took each bag and tore it with a straight edge into similar sized pieces. Then using wallpaper paste, applied the pieces in a random pattern to the wall.

I was pleasantly surprised to see the subtle differences in color and tone from one piece to the next, which I think enhances the overall look of the texture.
