Ideas For Decorating With Leftover Wallpaper

After my last visit to the Home Depot I came home with two beautiful wallpaper samples. Actually I wasn't even looking for wallpaper, I'm not really a fan, I'm way to lazy to put it on and I would be even lazier to eventually remove it. But as I was looking for new paint for my second bathroom, I spotted some beautiful wallpaper rolls in the corner of my eye. There were so many new and beautiful  designs to choose from. Finally I decided to ask a salesperson for a sample from some of them. It should be enough for a little decorating project, I thought of a lamp shade for the base I already have. I also did some research on the Internet for other ways to use wallpaper samples or leftovers. So many intelligent, surprising and beautiful ideas crossed my way that I decided to share them with you. Here are some of them:





Isn't it obvious why I chose the pictures above with loads of pink? No? Look at the calendar...

Sure, wrapping paper and scrapbook paper could do the job for some of these projects. Thanks for visiting,Diana!

Ah, decorating...

I haven't seen wallpaper since I left France, I notice people here would rather paint the walls.

Great post...great photos
Back in fashion and burgeoning with design potential, wallpaper has a place in everyone’s home. Wallpaper can hide a multitude of sins. If you use lining paper first on an uneven surface with hairline cracks and then add the decorative paper on top, you’ll get a superb finish that paint just can’t deliver
