How to cover low cost a brick glass wall / Come coprire a basso costo un muro in vetro cemento

I changed (temporary) apartment... and I had the problem to cover a brick glass wall which separates my little bedroom from another one. I didn't want to use paints or wallpaper but something smart and low cost.

A friend gave me the idea to cover first the wall with aluminium rolls to block the light. So I unrolled aluminium along the wall, fixing it with double-sided tape.

Then, I took three SNÖVITA gift wrap rolls (5m lenght) and I unrolled them over aluminium, fixing in the same mode and paying attention to avoid folds.
I chose a creamy-white vertical lines pattern to lighten the bedroom.
And this is the result! Very low cost but perfect for me and my roommate! :)

Total Costs: 6.5 €
- 3 * 1€ (was a special offer!) SNÖVITA gift wrap rolls (5m lenght) = 3 €
- 2 * 1€ aluminium rolls =  2 €
- 1 * 1.5 € double-sided tape = 1.5 €

Update: IKEA Hackers ha pubblicato il mio lavoro! ;)
