6 Alternative Uses for Wallpaper
This summer, use wallpaper to create a range of authentic transformations in your living spaces. Freshen up everyday items by trying out some of these innovative and effortless ideas.
Statement-Piece Table Runners
Unroll a few metres of wallpaper to make a unique and stylish table runner. Whether dining indoors or out on the patio, this durable and versatile runner can be easily wiped in case of spills or stains. Place over a tablecloth or directly onto the table. When clearing away, roll it up to use again or recycle.
Cut and laminate matching placemats from wallpaper rolls to use indoors or outdoors. Old placemats can be covered and laminated to give them a brand new look.
Simple Napkin Rings
Matching napkin rings can be made by using offcuts of wallpaper. Cut the wallpaper into measured strips then tape or glue the ends together.
Give new Life to Lampshades
Brighten up your lounge by covering your existing lampshades. Create a fresh, new look each season with this simple technique: place the wallpaper around the lampshade and cut to size, leaving a small border on either side. Clean fold lines ensure a crisp, elegant finish. Allow enough time for the glue to dry before turning on the lamp.
Create a Pinterest-worthy Home Office or Study
Zhoosh up the top of an old table or desk by resurfacing with a vibrant wallpaper finish. Cover with a sheet of cut-to-size glass, or decoupage it to make it last a lifetime. Use a complementary wallpaper covering for the drawer fronts and revive with new drawer knobs.
