What to do with leftover wallpaper?
Here are a few suggestions; but first be sure you keep a good piece for unexpected tears etc. if you still have a room using it!
Frame it as art:
Cover an ugly book:
Backdrop a cupboard, hutch or bookshelf : Wrap, then tape or glue the paper around some coreboard/cardboard that you have cut to fit your unit. This way you can change it up as often as you like and there’s no damage to the unit itself.
Cover a lampshade:
Line a drawer:
Change a teeny space:
You can also decoupage something, matt a picture, slip it under glass on a tabletop, make envelopes for picnic cutlery, wrap a present etc!

Thanks! The hard part is doing them all once a week!
Oh wow, you’re ambitious! LOL
Well that came out wrong! Lol I just meant getting it all together!
LOL.. still… ambitious 🙂
I love your creative ideas! :~)
Thank you! I love sharing them with you!
Love your ideas here! I really like the idea of backing book shelves with wallpaper, and as I have lots of new samples lying around it is something I may be trying soon 🙂
Ugh I wish I could borrow you for help with my teeny space! It’s amazing how quickly a decent size ranch house can feel too small with a family of four!
How big is your space?
I will have to take measurements to be sure, but our biggest bugaboo is our bedroom. Two adults, a queen sized bed and two dressers…you have to walk sideways to get around! Definitely not the relaxing space we want it to be!
Bummer, but actually I prefer cozy to too spacious. Sounds weird but it’s true and there’s less to clean!
I am impressed by the quality of information on this website. There are a lot of good resources here. I am sure I will visit this place again soon.
Thank you so much!
