Let’s Get Creative with Wallpaper

Tidy Tuesday is a weekly post series on the subject of home. I’ll talk about any remodeling / decorating of my house to tips to help you get your house organized to decorating tips.


Do you love to get creative by making projects? I have many projects ideas for you. You can get creative by using wallpaper. You can use scraps of wallpaper lying around your house or as much as a roll of wallpaper. It is up to you.

Wallpaper can add interest to any table, cabinet, bookshelf, or dresser. The wallpaper can be as simple or bold as you would like it. The table below shows a simple wallpaper design that works great with the white of the table. The cabinet below is great example of how to create a bold design with wallpaper on the back of the cabinet.



Wallpaper can also be framed and hung on a wall. The framed wallpaper can be displayed like the picture below or in different sized frames. Wallpaper can also be made into an art piece by wrapping it around a canvas and adding a quote to the piece like the picture below.

  1. Oh yeah, I am loving what you featured using wallpaper, so sophisticated and something little different than anybody else. I like different things in my home, so usually make things just to my ideas. Have only used wall paper borders to make art sometimes. Got little pieces at HD or Lowe’s to use. Bit too expensive for my pocket book otherwise. The photos you shared fire up other ideas off them.
    We don’t have a big fancy house, have a 16×80 single wide mfg. home. Hard to make it different but I do try with so many incredible ideas I see on blog posts, then make it my own. I get alot of pessimism from hubs but eventually he’ll try something since other things I’ve wanted him to do came out well.
    We don’t have a big budget, heck we don’t really have disposable income budget since we’re on SS. But we have lots of pallets and other wood pieces. I try to find good bargains on paint and usually only buy things at craft stores if I have coupons. Think not having money makes our minds work harder to make things, make do with what we have. Luckily I can sew which helps immensely also.
    So glad to have found your post about wallpaper uses. Found your post on Hit me with your best shot party. Happy days

    1. There are so many great ideas out there. My favorite of the ideas I chose is framing the wallpaper in frames. It’s so cool to make an art out of the wallpaper.

  2. Going to try some of these! Thank you for sharing this post at City of Creative Dream’s City of Links on Friday! I appreciate you taking the time to party with me. Hope to see you again today 🙂
