How to Make Your Own Wallpaper
Wallpaper can be expensive. Usually the ones you love are pricey! Make your own with this tutorial.
I had this small nook in my house that needed updating. It is seen from our kitchen, holds our most used door, and is also our walk through laundryroom. It is a high traffic space that needed spruced up!
I researched wallpapers and all the ones that I loved were still pretty expensive...even for this small nook. I tried a few paint samples on the wall to see if that added pop of color would do the trick, it did not.
Then one day as I was reading one of my favorite books, I had an idea. Why not use the book to create my own wallpaper!? The images I LOVE. the colors are BEAUTIFUL! The quotes are INSPIRING. It was the perfect solution to my small space.
I ripped up my book, got a few tools and wallpaper paste and got to work creating my own wallpaper. I love how it turned out! I know this look isn't for everyone. It was perfect for our home. It is colorful and lively just like us. You might also like my floral wall I painted, if you like color! You can take this idea with your own book and create a wallpaper that fits you! A recipe book in a kitchen or an encyclopedia in a reading nook would look cool too!
I love how this nook also compliments the pink lockers in my kitchen! For lots more pictures and specific details, please check out my blog post. http://spoonfulofimagination.com/how-to-make-your-own-wallpaper/
