Homemade vintage book page wallpaper

Wallpaper Project

The room was most definitely due for a change. I chose this particular paint color a few years ago on the Behr website without considering the fact that my laptop screen has horrible color payoff. I love green, but not thaaaaat much!

My creative man had the idea of using old music books to create a wallpaper of some sort – when I found the perfect books at a little old shop in Franklin Village I got so excited I think I may have screamed!

From there it was making our very own paper machê with flour, water and a tad of sugar, and spending a few nights applying our pages to the wall…

Now we are both in dire need of a massage but let me say we are satisfied with the results.

El cuarto ya necesitaba un cambio. Había elegido el color de pintura hace unos años en el website de Behr y no tomé en cuenta que los colores en la pantalla no tienen nada que ver con los colores en la vida real. Amo el verde, pero no taaaaaaanto!

A el creativo de Ben se le ocurrió usar libros viejitos de música para hacer un tipo de wallpaper; cuando encontré los libros perfectos en una tienda vintage en Franklin Village casi grito de la emoción!

De alli nos tocó hacer engrudo con harina, agua, y una pizca de azúcar, y dedicarle un par de noches a la aplicación de papeles en la pared…

Ahora a ambos nos urge un masaje pero quedamos satisfechos con el resultado.
