Dump Day: Paintable Wallpaper

Like chicken wire, paintable wallpaper is extremely versatile!  Before, we've used it mainly on furniture.  In fact, a little birdie told me that a certain famous magazine may be featuring one of our wallpaper pieces (more details SOON)!!!!  What! What!  (and BOOM goes the dynamite).

Here are the two pieces that we've done previously with paintable wallpaper.


Now that you've caught your breath and changed pants, I'd like to expose you to our latest project...the wallpaper window

Here is what the window looked like before - plain, old and BORING! 

I simply laid the wallpaper behind the window.  Notice that it took two strips to cover the entire window.  Therefore, I had to make sure the two pieces met along the middle of the window. 

While Sarah had the yellow paint out for her trunk, I grabbed the sprayer, and doused the wallpaper (2 coats please).  After it dried, I went a little staple gun Crae Crae (isn't that how kids say crazy these days...whatever happened to Fo Shizzle?). Once I was done with the staples, my job was done!!!  Remember - I'm a laborer not a decorator!  Here is Sarah's "touch"...

Don't you just love the way the texture of the wallpaper shows through the glass?!?!

Happy Junkin'!

Mr. Dump
