The Facebook user traced around a hexagon shaped photo frame on each of the samples and then carefully cut each one out. Using paste, she stuck each shape to the wall, pictured

Explaining her step by step process, Tanya wrote: ‘I collected wallpaper samples; bought a frame from B&M that was hexagon shaped; drew all hexagons on paper and cut out; painted wall white with three coats; stuck them on with wallpaper paste, leaving gaps.’
Members of the group were very impressed with Tanya’s work.
One wrote: ‘That looks fab! What a cracking idea.’
Members of the group applauded Tanya for her effort, and said using the wallpaper samples was a clever idea
Another wrote: ‘That’s genius, although there is now probably a grainy picture of you in all the wallpaper shops telling staff to refuse you samples.’
Some of the groups’ members pointed out that Tanya must have spent a long period of time working on her patchwork wall. Many said the young woman had the ‘patience of a saint.’
‘I love this. Don’t think I’d have the patience though im too clumsy too,’ one wrote.
‘Must have the patience of a saint, I just couldn’t. Looks lovely,’ said another.
Some pointed out that Tanya must be a very patient person in order to complete the wall, though the young woman later replied it took her about ten hours in total
