Vintage Wallpaper::

                                Remember, designing a Home around this?
      Remember the days when we couldn't wait to wallpaper a room in our homes? Or, remember those days of not being able to wait to take it down? I remember it all too well. Frankly, I'm glad I'm over it! Until, I saw these rolls at the thrift shop calling me. No, I'm NOT about to wallpaper. Here are some ideas for using vintage wallpaper rolls: wrapping paper, book covers, collage, card making, dresser draw liners, coasters and valentines.  Hey, why not recycle those unwanted rolls? Oh, no I hear another project coming.... we shall see!
      Speaking of projects. Thank you for all those great comments about the shade. You guys rock! Yes, I'm going to finish it now. I'll show and share at the end of the week ;)

         Thanks for stopping by.......Time for me to get din, din started!

Love vintage wallpaper and I have a nice little collection of it, mostly with pink roses. The best project I did with the paper was to patchwork a wood folding screen. It turned out really cute. Have since sold it and now I wish I still had it. Oh well!

Wallpaper is really fashionable in the UK right now. Everyone is doing it !!!

Yep, agreed! Vintage wallpaper is my favorite medium to create with!

I think wallpaper will make a comeback someday. After all the people who dealt with it years ago die and the stories of taking it down have faded. Until then you can have fun doing projects with it.

I do love wallpaper...just not when I have to scrape it off the walls...Hee,hee,hee. Those were all great ideas for repurposing wallpaper. Great thrift store finds. Oh Liz, just wanted to ask you if you got my email about the heart exchange. Just curious :-) Wishing you a wonderful day.

Hugs and Kisses,
Ana
