A recent stroke of genius from my husband and now I have a full blown obsession… wallpaper!
For the past few months we’ve had no luck searching for an artwork to place on our turquoise feature wall. One day my husband had the bright idea “How about we frame some wallpaper!” and a light bulb began to flicker inside my head. Give me an idea and I’ll run a mile with it. Soon I was envisioning every empty wall space in my house with framed wallpaper art.
So off we toddled to our local hardware store to look at their rather large collection of beautiful wallpaper. Ok, so we still couldn’t find the perfect ‘artwork’ for our wall but we did happen to stumble upon a decorator’s dream of colour, patterns and possibility.
Much to my husband’s dismay I took advantage of their free 20cm samples and I’ll admit I may have taken more than my fair share, but it was worth it!
Here is a quick tutorial on how I created a wallpaper artwork and added some colour back into our entryway table. Best of all, it is super, super EASY, FAST and FREE!
Step1: Remove the back of your frame.
Step 2: Lay the wallpaper face down and place the back of the frame onto the wallpaper.
Step 3: Trace around the frame back and cut out the wallpaper
Step 4: Place the wallpaper inside the frame and set the backing into place. Wallpaper is, well designed for walls so it’s super hard wearing. This is why I chose to remove the frame glass to prevent reflection and showcase its beautiful texture.
