Left over wallpaper - DIY

I love this DIY project from Shannon Fricke who did this for The Woman's Weekly - the perfect way to jazz up an old piece of furniture whilst making stunning use of those left over wallpaper pieces that you just didn't quite know what to do with! Clever lady she is!

  9. Something about it suggests Japanese art... along with a touch of tropical art too. Very relaxing and meditative, soothing colors.

  14. Now, that is clever!

    I have sample wallpaper pieces that I have been trying to find a good home project to put them to good use.

  16. What a great idea! I have an ugly china cabinet I've been wondering what to do with - some wallpaper would be fabulous in the back!

  17. What a fun idea. Stores that sell wallpaper might be willing to give away old books with samples, making this a no-cost project.
