If you're a regular reader of these here pages, you'll be aware that I love the creative possibilities that wrapping paper offers. I find it very hard to resist a paper with a heavy, textured feel to it and of course...a wonderful eye-catching design.
I found the above 1930s style paper in a giftshop in Nailsworth and was attracted to it straight away. I love the vibrant colours and the stylised trees and timber-framed houses; I wonder if this paper has been printed from an original barkcloth or cretonne design?
As I was looking at it an idea sprang to mind: I could paper the inside of my Easiwork cupboard with it!
So, armed with two rolls of said wrapping paper and some PVA glue, I made a start on it the other weekend. It was a bit tricky matching up the pattern in places - as you can see from the above photo, but I don't think it looks too bad.
And here's the final result...
...although I have to admit that the cupboard doesn't look this tidy now!
