Repurpose Old Wallpaper at Meetinghouse in Boothwyn With These DIY Ideas

February 12, 2015

Using wallpaper to actually cover walls isn't as popular as it used to be, but that doesn't mean wallpaper is obsolete. It can be used in a variety of other creative ways. If you're thinking about sprucing up your place at Meetinghouse, consider using these tips to incorporate wallpaper into your home decor.

  1. Line shelves. Instead of leaving your wall shelves or bookshelves bare, cover them with wallpaper to bring a pop of color to your space.
  2. Cover books. Speaking of bookshelves, you could give your beat-up books a makeover by covering them with printed wallpaper instead of using store-bought book covers.
  3. Line the drawers. Replace that boring brown drawer lining with colorful, stylish designs. Just attach the wallpaper with mounting squares or double-sided tape. Then cut it to the correct size so that it fits perfectly inside the drawer.
  4. Make a gallery wall. Pick out a few different statement wallpapers and frame rectangles of them. Then arrange the frames on a wall, creating a focal point in any room.
