Remember my post earlier this week? I was inspired to do something with some vintage wallpaper swatches I had. I decided to brighten up my old pantry doors in the kitchen. They looked a little boring and needed the "Beach Vintage Treatment".
- Collect some old wallpaper. Cut offs, samples, whatever you can find. Mine are from an old sample book I purchased on Ebay.
- Cut them up to the sizes you want. I didn't measure a thing as all my pieces were the same dimensions. I just made sure I had straight edges.
- Stick them however you want on the surface (I used a clear drying craft glue). I wanted my pieces to be in some kind of straight line or pattern but you can do it however you please. I applied the glue to the outer edges only and made sure the corners of each piece adhered well.
- Don't worry about perfection. My pieces overlap here and there are different sized pieces.
This took me about 2 hours from start to finish. It was so much fun and I love the end result. Wallpaper is easy to wipe down too if a mark appears. Well I am off for my birthday weekend to Byron Bay. I can hear the waves calling me now. Must fly. Have a good one. Simone xx
