Wallpaper Projects: Book Giveaway!

I recently had the distinct pleasure of traveling to Savannah with Derek Fagerstrom and Lauren Smith of The Curiosity Shoppe and creative DIY crafting fame. It was a wonderfully fun trip, and spending time with the two, I realized that they look at the world just a little differently - everything they see can ultimately be re-purposed as a potential craft project. Even a discarded coffee cup became a vessel for a bouquet of pretty flowers on our vanity.

The duo's latest book, published by Chronicle, is a perfect example of their inspiring way of thinking - Wallpaper Projects is full of over 50 different craft projects utilizing wallpaper scraps in ways I'd never dreamed of. Wallpaper...it's not just for walls anymore! From projects for your home like lampshades and a modern cuckoo clock, to window shades and TV trays, and on to stylish accessories like wallet and checkbook covers to playful pinwheels, Lauren & Derek have done all the brainstorming for you. Each of the Wallpaper Projects include a list of materials and tools needed, complete with simple, easy to understand 'How To' steps. Even the inside of the book jacket is a pretty wallpaper print, designed by textile designer Lena Corwin, and when slipped off becomes one of many potential Wallpaper Projects.

And now, Chronicle Books is generously offering two lucky sfgirlbybay readers a chance to win one of two copies of Wallpaper Projects! Simply comment briefly below, giving us your DIY idea using wallpaper in a craft project and we'll pick two winners! Please enter by Friday, May 15th at midnight, and I'll announce a winners the week of May 18th. Be sure to include a way to contact you, either your email, or webpage/blog! For more about Wallpaper Projects and how to order, click here, and follow more of Lauren & Derek's crafty antics on their blog, Smarts & Crafts.

What a great book and giveaway!

I would wallpaper my bulletin board and my shelf in my closet.

This book would give me inspiration to do so much more.

Thank you!

Christine Chitnis said...

I have been dying to get my hands on this book.

I am excited/ scared to try wallpapering. I thought I would start with a small project, like lining the shelves of my bathroom closet. This book would be the inspiration that I need to take the plunge!

Norine said...

I want to do Inside of my nightstands, inside of my uh, armoire and shoe boxes. Somehow this all seems really hard. Maybe the book would change my mind.

angeltreats said...

I love wallpaper but we rent so I can't cover my walls in it. So lately I've been buying discontinued rolls and covering my notebooks and textbooks for university. They look so much prettier!

Meghan said...

I've got a couple rolls of vintage wall paper waiting for a good use. This book sounds like it would be perfect for that. I've always liked the idea of wallpapering the inside of cabinets and installing glass doors so that the paper can be seen.

SpaGoddess said...

I love making greeting cards out of vintage wallpapers - each of them is unique, and extra special because they're handmade....

Krissy said...

That book looks marvelous! I'll definitely have to scout it out. :)

Since I rent and move around a lot, wallpapering walls isn't really an option for me. But to get that same effect, I bought three small rolls of discount rack wallpaper (on the cheap is key for a student like myself), attached an office clip to the top corner of each, and hung them off of nails. So now I have three hanging strips of wallpaper over my bed (think like a wall scroll) that are my headboard. Cheap, simple, and easy to bring with me wherever I go. :D

melinda said...

-i would use wallpaper to line an old suitcase i have.

-secondly, the inside of a bathroom
shelf

- a wall of many different squares of wallpaper, overlapping each other and sort of random(saw it in a book once and loved it)

this book would be great for me because i am wanting to tackle the skill of wallpapering. i do have a wall in my house in mind....

Annie Atkin Rasmussen said...

I;m going wallpaper crazy these days. Must be a symptom of looking at my BEIGE apartment walls!

I want to

*wallpaper individual panels of my furniture
*wallpaper the inside of my TV armoire
*wallpaper filing cabinets and clipboards
*Hang a framed piece of beautiful wallpaper

As you can see, I desperately need this book to help me get this out of my system!

suGar,Honey,bAby,doll said...

I love the idea of this book!

My wallpaper craft ideas are to make:
* a table runner
* a mat to place in front of the kitchen sink
* a stylish room divider made of old doors swathed in wallpaper
* cover recycled jars or cans to use as storage tins or flower vases

Sarah said...

I love the idea of decorating with wallpaper! If I had oodles and oodles of fun paper, I would wallpaper the ceiling of my closets and powder room *and then paint the walls a funky, fun color". I also love the idea of framing cool wallpaper or using a background for photos or artwork in a frame!

What a lovely giveaway!

I would love to wallpaper the back of an old bookshelf we have in our spare bedroom, and the walls on the sides of our fireplace where we hope to put built-in bookshelves.

thelady said...

I would use wallpaper to decorate FÖRHÖJA wall shelf with drawers from Ikea. I'd paste them to the front of the drawers and mount them above the desk in my sewing room for storing sewing supplies.

Liz said...

I would love to use wallpaper inside of my medicine cabinet for a nice "Good Morning, Beautiful" first thing in the am. I love the idea someone suggested about the inside of a china cab to set off barware! Great Giveaway! Thank you!

Lauren said...

I am currently a renter and love wallpaper so I would make wall panels by putting wallpaper onto particle board then frame it off with some white trim and hang it on my walls to add some color to my white walls! I am also looking to get a crafting armoire where I could line the inside with fun wallpaper!

jennifer in sf said...

I don't know, that's why I need the book!!

No, actually I've been thinking about doing a wall in my closet, and the back of 2 built-in cabinets I have. I'm thinking seeing all their projects might push me into action!

lilia said...

This book looks lovely - and the photos are totally inspirational! I've been wanting to make a kids' memory game with photos on one side and wallpaper on the back....I think it would be a really nifty gift for my clients! :-)

Maghanoy said...

I would love to wallpaper the inside of everything with in my house and use wallpaper to create bookplates for my books.

katek said...

It depends on how much paper I had. If I had a small amount, I'd use it to make custom mats for a bunch of artwork. With a few rolls, I'd paper foamcore and put it in the backs of my 15' wall of Ikea Billy bookcases in the dining room. They recently changed the backing material and now there are visible seams if you don't have each shelf completely filled. That Ferm feather wallpaper is actually what I've wanted to use for that particular project!

Mary Casper said...

Yes Please!

I think wallpaper makes a perfect summer table covering, as a runner or placemats, because it's so easy to clean up and more interesting than a plain old table.

Craftwise, the possibilities are pretty endless...bookmarks...postcards...the mind reels.

Miss Aimee said...

i am really wanting to cover my metal file cabinet with a cute hip wallpaper to give it an entire new vibe!

michelle and brittany said...

there are quite a few things i'd love to do with wallpaper, but i'll limit it to these three:

1. the top of my coffee table (i'd seal it of course :] )
2. the inside of my linen cabinet, china cabinet and closets.
3. i actually thought of the lampshade idea, but the book already has that in it!

-emjay

Sarah said...

Since I rent, I would probably just make cards. But that's why I need this book! :)

moxie sinclair said...

I'd like to make a wooden dollhouse and line the rooms with really great wallpaper. And there's always the old standby when you're in a pinch: table runner.

lovely book.

Tammy said...

I'd like to wallpaper some 12x12 clipboards to hang above my desk in my craft room. I think it'd be a great way to display magazine clippings, cloth swatches, and other objects of inspiration.

Augusti_73 said...

I have three ideas I'd like to try:
- Wallpaper the back of an old medical cabinet (not sure if this is the right word) where we now have our glass ware
- Wallpaper the inside of the frosted glass doors of a cupboard in the living room
- Wallpaper the top of the plain white tv-furniture-thingy

We've just gone crazy with wallpapers in our apartment and did the hallway and two different walls in the living room. Love the result!

jenna rose said...

a couple wallpaper projects i would like to do:
-i have an old dresser I would like to paint and put a lovely patterned wall paper on the old beat up top surface
-wallpaper + wood veneer + rounded corners= postcards with pattern on one side and wood on the other where you can write your message, address and stamp.

This looks like a great book.

how exciting! I'd love to try to use wallpapers on birdhouses! (maybe not for the birds' sake, but strictly for home decor purposes) :)

SimplyGrove said...

What a great Giveaway!! I want to paper my shelves in my living rm and my dining room pendant light:)

Sandy said...

i would put some wallpapers inside black frames to add contrast on my one-color-wall.

Carrie said...

So fab!!

I actually had an idea that I'm hoping to implement this summer if I can find the right paper...

Basically I'd like to make easily wipe-able placemats, tablecloth, runners, etc for my outdoor dining furniture.

I'd like to use a few different papers and create some sets that can easily be interchanged for mixing up even my outdoor dining decor....AND easy clean up!

when skies are grey said...

Hello! What a great giveaway.
I'd love to see this book to give me better ideas on how to wallpaper either my bathroom (it's due) or a wall in my hallway. I love the idea of wallpaper but don't like may of the traditional designs.

Ems said...

oh that book is on my wishlist! it looks so amazing!

dazzlynn said...

OHHH! How wonderful!

I really really want to wallpaper a section of my wall, maybe in 3 panels, and frame it out with decorative molding.

Anonymous said...

so many things you can do with extra wallpaper! depending on how large a piece of wallpaper that you have, you can:

• cut piece to fit tabletop + cover with glass to protect it + cover bad/ugly/damaged tabletop, desk, night stand, side table... i've done this!

also
• attach to plain "roller" shade + jazz up a window
and
• use it as a mat for a photograph
• cover books to protect them + make them pretty
• make journal covers
• cover tins + jars to organize or hold flowers
• cover cigar boxes for pretty storage
• use in collage artwork
• line shelves + cupboards
and so much more...

thanks for the opportunity! the book looks great!

Why didn´t I know about that book before now??? My blog was to begin with an all wallpaper blog - how could I miss it.
As you would see on my blog I use my wallpaper leftovers in many ways.
I use them for gift wrapping,
Christmas Decorations (http://wallyspaper.blogspot.com/2008/12/christmas-decorations.html) and my next project is a dollhouse that I have seen a couple of places. (http://wallyspaper.blogspot.com/search?q=dollhouse)

ephrat said...

What an awesome book!

I'd love to make a lamp shade, and of course to line my cabinets and shelves with a fun design.

Kate said...

The only wallpapering I have done is on a dollhouse:-) Now I would like to use some on my house: either on the raised panels of my doors or on the front of my stairs. Or cut out some animals for my son's bedroom wall. I must have this book (and it'd be lovely to win it). Thank you!

Ana said...

I am a wallpaper virgin!

I was admiring this book and I think it would give me the inspiration I need to give wallpaper a shot.

Whits said...

I saw this book on design*sponge and I have coveted it!

I would wallpaper my closet doors because they are dull and brown.

Vera D. said...

I would use the wallpaper to make my DIY wedding invitations, including:

- Double-pasting to the back of the invitation
- Belly bands
- Envelope liners

If I find enough of it, I'd also consider using "vintage" style wallpaper as inexpensive table runners (stitched together).

jaime said...

I frame leftover wallpaper to use as artwork. It looks like an original painting if done properly.

brand-eye said...

i've been wanting to wallpaper the risers of my steps. i just need to find the perfect roll!

Bianca said...

i would love this book :)
-i recently made a shoe shelf and a simple shelf and i decorated them with black and white wallpaper.
-i have two very old simple chairs and i want to stick wallpaper on their legs to cover them because they have 6 paints on them. and i can`t take them off...
- and i want to cover my livingroom door and my bedroom door with wallpaper..but i didn`t found the right one yet :)

meggcellent said...

i really want to line the back of my bookshelves, or inside a trunk... and of course the gift tags! too pretty.

Inklore said...

I want to paper the wall behind my bed...and make some cards/notebooks. Such a lovely book!

laura said...

i use wallpaper to stretch around pre-made canvases or stretcher bars and hang them on my wall to add pops of color and pattern throughout my space.

Martina said...

My apartment is too small for a coffee table, so my boyfriend and I were planning on buying two square ottomans that we could use for footrests, storage, and tables. So we're going to get trays to put on top of them and I've been thinking of covering them with wallpaper. I was thinking of doing the trays in one pattern and then getting some coasters and covering them in another pattern.

mS said...

-Wrap the pots of flowers in my patio with wallpaper then put a hair tie or ribbon (maybe even baker's twine) around it, just like the pretty pots in grocery stores.
-Make an envelope using wallpapers.
-Put a vellum paper on top of it, write on the vellum and use it to write a letter.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Allison said...

Hi Victoria!

I have an old file cabinet that I'm dying to cover with this Cole & Son wallpaper that I scored on eBay. I'll send photos when I do! I'm also going to remove the hardware, and add some cute vintage pulls. Filing cabinets are so ugly! I'm gonna doll mine up!

That said my other wallpaper project is to make some ornaments for my Christmas tree this year. I have this old flocked wallpaper that I will never hang but will look great adorning my tree.

I've seen Derek and Lauren's book at Urban Mercantile, and it's amazing. It would be put to good use in my house! :)

Belle said...

I like to use wallpaper samples to collage onto book covers in altered book projects.

Ursula said...

I know it has been done before, but I have a cabinet with glass doors and the inside would be so beautiful wallpapered. It would set off my collection of white dishes beautifully.

Does anyone sell beautiful scrap wallpaper? I'd be interested in anyone's leftovers!

lindsey said...

When I was little I used my mom's wallpaper sample books to make cards for everyone's birthdays...cutting out wallpaper flowers and gluing them to cardstock.

Viktoria said...

I would use the wallpaper to make cards for my small home business and I would also wallpaper the badly drywalled sloping walls around my bed in the attic. How inspiring it would be to wake up to those walls!

robin said...

Tiny house, tiny walls...wallpaper? The permanence of it sort of scares me, but I would love to find some gorgeous wallpaper to make decorative panels or perhaps cover a blah room divider.

I need help and inspiration!

Rachel Dallaire said...

Looks awesome! Thanks for doing the giveaway!

Heidi Jo said...

How did you know I'm dying to get this book? I am sure I don't have any original wallpaper ideas, but I like the idea of using wallpaper as book covers. Imagine how pretty they would look on a bookshelf. The only problem would be not knowing which is which until you open them up... : )

jennifer said...

i would love to re-do my plain black shelf with a vintage wall paper backing!

This has me thinking about the three rolls of border wallpaper I've stored in the linen closet for several years. Instead of hanging in the steaming bathroom I think I would make a set of cansisters for the kitchen counter that are colorful and attractive. Should also be easy to do.

Courtney said...

I have some abstract charcoals waiting to be framed, and I'd love to wallpaper big wide mats to lend some graphic color.

I recently wall papered a few frames of black and white photos to give it some color and it looks awesome! it really unifies the photos.

I love playing with Wallpaper samples. They're so wonderful! I would love to create temporary covers for my ugly apartment cabinets.

jomama said...

ooh, ooh, ooh, i've been coveting this book!
and i've been looking for inexpensive ways to personalize my house.
my daughter has a very plain white dresser from ikea, and i'd like to wallpaper each drawer front and put on some new sparkly knobs.
thanks!

Glamour Moms said...

This book looks AWESOME. I adore wallpaper.

I am planning on wallpapering the inside backs of the 2 bookcases in my front hall.

I am also planning on using wallpaper to cover the top of an old desk I am going to be refinishing and then topping it off with a piece of cut plexi glass.

I am a renter so instead of wallpapering the wall, I covered a board with fabulous paper from Graham and Brown and hung it as a headboard. It is insanely gorgeous and has fueled my desire to attempt more wallpaper projects.

Jenna said...

Awesome book! I like the idea of using wallpaper to cover stair fronts.

kristy said...

I love using wallpaper to line the inside of things - like cupboard doors, drawers, door frames. It gives a little bit of surprise when you open something and find a beautiful and unexpected design. Love it!

Christina @ Pardon my Vintage said...

I have been thinking of applying wallpaper to the inner frame of my bedroom door, and along the back of a bookcase ... it does seem intimidating, which is why this book is so timely, I suppose. :)

Renata said...

I recently used a wallpaper piece from a sample book that was being discarded as the matte background in a frame for a birthday gift I made for my sister. It was not fancy, but I liked the texture and substance of the paper! Turned out great.

tiffany said...

I have an open-plan space, so everything is visible, all the time. Including my office and ugly black bookkeeping folders. It would be great to cover them all in lovely wallpapers. In fact I could cover some other office elements in coordinated colors/patterns as well. That would completely transform the space. Great exercise... I'm inspired!

amanda bee said...

I recently framed a black and white print floating against linen backing board, I bet a bright, small-print wallpaper would make a great backing for a floating print.

I also really like my planner: for some reason I searched high and low for an attractive filofax before it occurred to make my own with cardboard and binder rings. I've covered the cardboard covers with something different every year, but never wallpaper.

Suzanne said...

oooh, i SO need that book! i live in an apartment so unfortunately all i can do with wallpaper is everything BUT put it on a wall! and i love some of the new, fun wallpaper patterns that are out right now.
i'd love to do the inside of my big bookshelf unit with a fun wallpaper. and maybe find some to use as fancy gift wrap. i'd also like to use some for covering an ugly journal i have (the inside pages are pretty but the outside - not so much). also use some to cover a cork bulletin board.
sorry, i know that's more than two but i'm feeling rather inspired all of a sudden!

shanon said...

I keep thinking that I want to wallpaper the ceiling of my bedroom. But then I have visions of doing it wrong and the wallpaper falling down on me in my sleep. =) Surely that wouldn't happen?

Connie said...

I have been making post-and-screw scrapbooks using retro 33 rpm record jackets (most from the '60's) as the covers. Examples posted on my blog http://menumagicandmore.blogspot.com/
I have used new papers for the inside back covers, but would love to use vintage wall papers - I keep my eye on ebay for some great 60's patterns.
Would love to win a copy of the book for other wallpaper ideas. Thanks for posting this giveaway!

I want to
1) Wallpaper the top of my desk. I think it'd be inspiring to have a pretty pattern to look at while I'm doing homework. :)
2) Use wallpaper scraps as book covers. Wouldn't that be lovely?

I have lots more ideas, but can't seem to find any wallpaper remnants around my town. :(

Carli said...

Okay so at my son's reptile birthday party we used old wallpaper to make big 'scaly' snakes and they turned out really well. My other favourite thing to do is go to wallpaper and design showrooms and see if they have any old wallpaper samples they don't need anymore - then make collages with them.

This book would be great to get some more ideas!

my names Jo, what's yours? said...

love your blog and love the curiosity shoppe. super excited about the new book.

i love saving, even the littlest, of paper scraps. cutting them up in fun shapes, then glueing them on some blank cards for stationery.

Jacqui said...

I love wallpaper so much! I've used it to cover school books in the past, then lined envelopes with it, and now that I finally have my own house I can't wait to put it on my walls and furniture!

emily_h said...

OOoooo.... I would love this book! collect loads of wallpapery scraps but never knew how many possibilities there were! Derek and Laura are two very talented beans indeed.

I would love to wallpaper my desk at work!! it is currently black (they all are) and hugely uninspiring... I think a bright wallpapered worksurface would make those working hours so much brighter!!

(great post, thankyou)

museofmeraki said...

This book sounds wonderful!

I rescued a dilapidated collection of Victorian era children's books and have been altering them to create works of art and functional pieces. I think adding wallpaper to the books would be an excellent idea!

Margaret Perry said...

Scraps of wallpaper make excellent labels for my homemade jams. The paper is much more sturdy than any labels I can find, and more fun. Ink the label (with a fine marker, or medium tip ballpoint), and cut it out. Use a touch of rubber cement to affix it to the jar.


You could use fun shears for the edges, but I like to do a straight edge and let the paper's design shine.

The Other Tiffany said...

Great giveaway! I've been looking for wallpaper for the main wall in my entryway to give guests an idea of the fun in store for them when they enter. I also want to use wallpaper scraps to cut out car shapes to adhere to my son's nursery walls. I'd love to get a big sample book of swatches with fun geometric patterns and create a little transportation mural with the cutouts on his walls.

I have an old school desk (with a top that lifts up) that I use as an end table in a cozy little den off my living room (in my condo). I will use wallpaper inside the desk as a pretty surprise and also some on top of the desk. The sides are a pretty orange color so wallpaper will give the rest of it a pretty look.

Would LOVE to win the book. Wallpaper projects normally intimidate me. Maybe with the book by my side, I could actually complete a wallpaper project!

leanne said...

i live in an apartment and my bedroom is a tiny, tiny room with only one wall free of doors. one wall has the entrance as well as a very large breaker box, one has sliding glass patio doors and a door to my stackable washer/dryer and the other obstructed wall is fitted with sliding mirror doors leading to my closet.

i couldn't do much about most of these obstructions, but i could at least get rid of the gold rimmed mirror eye sore, by covering the doors with a roll of wallpaper that i found at a thrift store.

it looks clean and bright and just generally makes me smile everytime i walk into the tiny space. wallpaper is great. i need more ways to cover up my renter woes.

kathemc(at)gmail(dot)com said...

Get an awesome print, put it in four matching 11x14 frames, and hang them in a grid over my headboard as art.

Jonathan said...

If I'm not too late, consider me as a possible winner!

I got an entire house that I could wallpaper as I just got it a month ago and I haven't done a thing to it.

MOMFOREVERANDEVER said...

latest thing I dis is lined the inside of shelves and did insiode the doghouse- yep they get a makeover every spring

mridula said...

the book sounds wonderful. Live in the land of whitewashed cement walls. i wonder if they lend themselves to wallpapering. Would certainly make my house different. But really if I had wallpaper I wouldn't glue them to the walls, would instead frame as art. Large pieces of art in a varying large sizes of frames. Sometimes they would be backdrop, at other times they would come into the foreground. I love the idea of changing walls at will.

joolee said...

luver-ly book! we need some wallpaper in our bedroom...even just on one wall. a change will be good!!

Raina said...

i would like to cover the top of a rectangular, pine table by muji. this table is just right for me because it's small and it folds up nice and flat. the idea is this: i will be storing this table under my sofa when i'm not using it, which is why i'd cover the top in a pretty print. that way, each time i pull out the table it would be a colorful, charming sight, like being handed a bouquet of flowers or a tray of sushi.

Creative said...

I would love for somebody to show me how to use scrap wallpaper mate and frame photos or a collage of photo projects; I am a mother, grandmother, photographer and graphic designer and simply cannot afford to professionally matt and frame EVERYTHING!

Creative said...

Additionally, I would love to use the new Wallpaper Projects book to update my decor at my new town house; now that I think about it my office could use some help,too!)

Sincerely,
Creative

Cool! I have a hope chest I want to line with wallpaper, and I also want to try to do the outside but not sure how it will work due to the curved edge of the lid.

Christine Edwards said...

Great looking book. I really can see using wallpaper in smaller projects, especially if you rent or can't hang wallpaper for other reasons. There are so many wonderful designs out there...framing a piece with a cool design, use as shelf or drawer liners, cover an old wastebasket. Thanks for the giveaway.

Barefoot Contessa said...

I would wallpaper my phone books because there always seems to be 3 laying around and I can never bring myself to get rid of them *just in case.

I would also line the inside of old glass jars with vintage wallpaper to create pretty ways to store bathroom supplies like cotton balls and q-tips

I am also planning to wallpaper the section under our breakfast bar because it is a sadly neglected stretch of vertical space.

Would LOVE to win this book!

BinkyJ45 said...

I like to make envelopes out of wallpaper - they are sturdy and much more special than the envelopes that come with cards. I can customize the envelope to the person I am sending the card.
