Vintage wallpaper: what should I do with it?
Once upon a time I found a roll of a fabulous vintage wallpaper at my local Value Village. This was a very rare sighting. Leftover rolls of wallpaper at ValVill are commonly the 1980s variety – too heavy on the pinks and dark greens – or something from a child’s nursery… neither of which interests me very much.
This particular roll tugged at my heart. I had to have it.
Well, that was two years ago. A tiny fraction of it has since covered a school textbook, which worked pretty well (excuse the poor lighting here):
… but that’s it. I’m not brave enough to cover a wall with this stuff, but there has to be another way I can use it.
Maybe I could make envelopes out of it. Or cut out some shapes and make wall art? Or laminate it to use as placemats? (Ohhh, there are a whole bunch of neat ideas here!) If I can’t figure it out soon my roll of vintage wallpaper will be going up on UsedOttawa. I hear it’s a fairly sought-after item.
