Wallpaper Inspiration

Great Projects using wallpaper to create a custom look for your home.  You can use self adhesive, wallpaper adhesive or decoupage glue when crafting your wallpaper projects.   Most projects use less than a roll of wallpaper.   My Three favorite ideas from BHG.com are the Room Dividers, Headboard and the Lamp Shade.

New Impressions

After removing the shirred fabric and rods from the panels of these hinged, decorative shutters, we gave the frame a fresh coat of paint. Then we tacked wallpaper-covered plywood panels onto the back to make a zippy privacy screen.

Editor’s Tip: Let loose! Wallpaper is a fun medium, so play around and see what needs a new look in your space. Accessories such as these are quick, affordable updates. More ideas from BHG

Retro bird wallpaper instantly dressed up this once plain wood headboard. To get the look, simply cut the wallpaper according the shape of the headboard. Attach using the manufacturer’s instructions.  This project is perfect for our Orleans Ready to Cover Headboard, which is manufactured from cabinet grade plywood.  Which creates a sturdy yet light weight headboard.  This wonderful headboard comes in twin, full, queen and king size.

Wallpaper Lamp Shade from BHG

Bright Ideas – Cover a lampshade for a soft glow whenever the lamp is on. Place a piece of wallpaper on a flat surface. Roll the shade along the wallpaper, tracing both edges. Add 1/2 inch to each edge, cut out the cover, and use spray adhesive to attach it. Snip the excess paper at even intervals, fold to the back of the shade, and secure with spray adhesive.  More Ideas at BHG
