What's On Your Drawers?

If you didn't know it already - we love wallpaper
Since we don't have anything to wallpaper on the walls in our homes at the moment, we're looking for some furniture, because we love this!

The wallpaper just makes these drawers pop!
One roll of wallpaper is all you'd need for something so pretty - just imagine the possibilities!

This decoupaged dresser from Martha Stewart
How about vintage botanical, floral or bird prints? Look on eBay or estate, or garage sales for wall paper remnants, pages out of books, blueprints, anything to put on the drawers - you just need some wallpaper paste - and voila!

Pick your paper out first, then pick out a fabulous paint color that compliments the paper.

Don't have a dresser?
How about a cabinet or shelf?
Wallpaper makes anything pop!

well, you are so my kind of
honestly i cringe when i hear designers say oh paper is so passe... the nuts. lol

i have revamped a dresser with paper, and it sits in the parlor. i also have used paper as inserts in cabinets, when the mood struck me.

love your images...they help show that paper is far from old school!

thank you so much for the notes about the kids wedding :)

Blessings to you.

Those are definately not the 70's trends. It has been so updated and looks so more polished. I like hand-painting, but for those not handy with a brush, and can't even do the One-brush technique....paper is the answer...
It also covers a multitude of sins.
Hope you can pop over for the Vintage Alphabet on my blog.
