Weekend Show and Tell

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

I'm a little bummed. I lost 2 followers over the weekend. I suppose that's what I get for my inconsistent posting, eh? But I'm so glad you're still here! I'd hug you if I could!

Anyway, I wanted to let you in a a little sneak peek on what *I* was laboring over all weekend! And when I say labor, I totally mean it. So much so that every part of my body aches. More on why later.

I'd like to line the back of the cabinets with something cute. I'm thinking my best bet would be wrapping paper. What do you think? Have any other ideas instead of wrapping paper? I'd love to hear!

would fabric work?!!?!?
can't wait to see the finished look!!!

Kristina at The Purple Pea said...

Oh yes! That's a great idea too!!

Something bright and patterned, for sure! Fabric, wallpaper, wrapping paper...scrapbooking paper? Viv at Ish & Chi does cute stuff like this - I'd see what she uses - good luck!!

And thanks for commenting on my blog, Kristina! :)

xo, Lindsay

I was going to suggest fabric, as well.

A few more ideas:

Woven wide ribbons, handmade paper with bits of botanicals included, a tile mosaic, maybe? Mirrors might also do well in the space to make the space feel bigger.

Wrapping paper is good so long as it's thicker -- some papers tear so easily! Try Whimsy Press; they're paper is super thick!

You could print/paint your own pattern on some canvas and stick it back there. Can't wait to see what you decide on!!

ooh, that's fun. and yes, chalkboard contact paper; i've heard about it but never tried it out! i like it when people use a little strip on the inside of cabinet doors to make lists, etc. or i think maybe that's how they make those chalkboard labels on jars/cans/etc. cute! can't wait to see what you use it for!

I would go the wallpaper (you can get stuff that comes off easily too for when you want to change it out). Maybe a fabric covered board cut to fit in snugly? You wouldn't even have to glue it in.

contact paper?
wall paper?
old bed sheet?

I'm excited to see it!
