DIY: Framed Wallpaper Picture


{BEFORE}

We've had this old family photo up for four years. I've never liked the frame around it, and have been especially annoyed by it the last couple of years. Finally, I decided to do something about it! FINALLY! I ordered some wall paper from Walls, bought white spray paint from Home Depot, and purchased a matte to surround the "picture." Here is the result! I am quite pleased and love how refreshing it is to have a "different" frame in that location. This wall paper is fantastic and I'm thinking of using it on the back of my cabinet piece. When I ever get to that project, I'll show pics.
I have framed wall paper in two other places in my home. I'll show those pics later too. I love wallpaper ! After spending hours tearing down my mom's old wallpaper, I never thought I'd say that about wallpaper.....but have you seen how fun, unique, and sophisticated it is lately? Wow! If putting it on a wall sounds a little over-the-top right now, then framing it is a great idea! I think I'm ready to wallpaper a bathroom, entry, or one wall in my bedroom. I have to find just the right print for that.
