Have old wallpaper that you want to cover up? Consider using aluminum foil to create a subtle sheen and vintage appeal. Unique and cost-effective!

  • Applying the aluminum foil on top of wallpaper paste.
  • Subtle texture created by wrinkling the aluminum foil first.
  • The finished product!
  • Such an easy and cost effective solution for covering up old wallpaper!

    I have used fishtank scenery rolls as a backsplash, looks like my kitchen looks out on an aquarium, waterproof and easy to clean. Lots of choices
