Wallpaper...It's not what it used to be!

So I know that wall paper has this super bad rep for being well…not the best looking thing out there. Let’s be honest most of our grandmothers had some pretty…interesting wall coverings back in the day. Or my personal favorite the teddy bear border my mom put around my room. (They were a little creepy) BUT, wallpaper gotten so much better over the years and companies have really stepped up their game.

One of the coolest things I’ve seen being done with wall paper is to make a giant piece of art out of it. Seabrook, a wallpaper company, has come out with a gorgeous wallpaper that has a huge motif. It can be mounted to a 54” x 108” canvas!

This is a great and unique way to get a large piece of art for a wall. Actually we are planning to use the wall paper shown above for a project. This is going to look sooooo awesome in a niche. The plan is to mount the wallpaper to a canvas and to glaze the piece to make it look more like a piece of art and not just wall paper.

Don’t worry as soon as we have pictures, they will be posted!
