Framed Wallpaper Panels

When I inherited some awesome leftover wallpaper from my aunt and uncle, I knew that I definitely wanted to use it. However, with the possibility of a move in our future someday, I did not want to commit to putting it straight on the wall. So, I whipped up these framed wallpaper panels to showcase this beautiful woods wallpaper.

Woods Wallpaper
Paint Brush
Wallpaper Paste
Credit Card (for smoothing out the bumps)
MDF Board (cut to size)
Decorative Trim
White Paint
Wood Glue
Command Large Picture-Hanging Strips
I started by cutting the MDF board and trim pieces to my desired lengths (with a little help from the hubs).

Next, I measured and cut the wallpaper to fit on the board. Using the paint brush, I applied wallpaper paste to the back of the wallpaper and attached it to the board.

While that dried, I painted the mitered trim pieces and then used wood glue to stick them on around the edges of the panel, creating a pretty frame.

Finally, using Command Strips, I carefully hung the panels on the wall (after measuring where they would go.) They only weighed about 6.5 lbs each, so hopefully they will stay up on the wall without a problem.

The panels are now happily hanging in our bedroom and I love that I can enjoy them everyday. Check out all of the measurements and details on our blog!

    I like it, it looks good and doesn't look shoddy. Why use the command hooks and not anything else??

      Command hooks work great! On apartment the only way to go and they are always coming out with new products!

    Great idea especially if living in a rented home/appt. Command hooks greatest invention, aren't they?? 😊

    Great project, without wallpapering an entire room, and mobile, too. You can also fold and glue the wallpaper over foam core, like you might fabric, to make a lighter weight panel.
