My guess is that if I handed you a roll of wallpaper you would try to put it on a wall, am’I right? Have you ever stopped to think about all the other possible uses for a roll of the stuff? In my opinion, wallpaper should actually be called make-anything-awesome paper because in reality, you can install it on any hard surface. Remember my post Stair Risers Need Love Too? Some of those looks were achieved by using wallpaper!
One unexpected way to use wallpaper is by putting it on the ceiling. Stupid simple right, but who would’a thunk it?!
Another interesting use for wallpaper is to dress up cabinetry. Does anyone remember Jill Zarin’s apartment remodel on RHNYC? Her kitchen was amazing!
Decorative trays are a fun accessory for any living room and wallpaper is a great way to make a decorative tray even more fun! These are actually really easy to make (you can use regular decorative paper too); I have made a couple in the past. After pulling these pictures I have a hankering to make more! When I finally get my Etsy store going, you may see these on there.
If you have ever watched the Nate Berkus Show you have probably seen him use wallpaper to dress up a furniture piece or two. This is my favorite unexpected use for wallpaper!
Can’t find a piece of art you love? How about framing a piece of wallpaper you love instead?!
Between writing my post Wallpaper, Say What?!
, writing this post and shopping for wallpaper for a client, I’m going to have to take the first step and admit I have a problem. Hi, my name is Megan and I am addicted to wallpaper. There, that feels better!
