Wallpapering walls and even ceilings is a hot trend that we’ve been seeing all over the design world. If you’ve recently done a wallpaper project in your home you might have a partial roll of paper leftover. There are many ways to use wallpaper beyond the walls and ceilings of your rooms. If you are too leery of putting up wallpaper and don’t have a spare roll lying around your home, you can buy a single roll for these projects.
Wallpaper is a great way to add color and pattern to a room and can also be used to spruce up furniture and cabinets. You can use spare rolls or buy a roll or two of wallpaper for smaller projects. Adding wallpaper to cabinets and furniture can give new life to old or dated pieces.
Add wallpaper to the inside of a bookshelf or cabinet to create a colorful background. Painting the exterior and adding wallpaper can turn an old cabinet or flea market find into a custom piece that perfectly matches your décor.
Just like an area rug can add pattern and color to the floor, wallpaper can add it to any flat surface. A console table, dresser, or table top can be transformed with chic wallpaper. Be sure to seal the surface after you apply the paper to protect it from spills and wear.
For less permanent ways to use small sections of wallpaper, think about framing them. A collection of framed wallpaper patterns is an expensive way to decorate bare walls.
