Well, I had one of those aha moments, I have lots of those lately 😉 So, I pulled out that beadboard wallpaper, you know, the same wall paper I used on THIS project.I measured each back panel, then cut the piece slightly larger than I needed and applied this self pasted wallpaper to the back panels.Many of you may not know this, I guess it depends on when you started reading my blog.But, I was selling painted furniture and vintage pieces at an antique mall a few years ago.You can’t just slap a coat of paint on this and call it a day.I knew that I wanted to paint it, I just needed to decide what to do with the back of it.I think this bookcase would look great as a display for dishes as I have it here, or in a bathroom for towels and things, in a craft room, or as a bookcase. The lesson for today, don’t pass up on that piece because it’s ugly. Beadboard Wallpaper Beadboard As you can see my home has a Shabby Chic look to it.Ha, I think I’ve said this before, but you can see that no matter what, you can transform a piece. I know I’ve been showing lots of pink, which I love.
I’ve had lots of questions about Shabby Chic style, so I made a quick little video on adding Shabby Chic style to your home.Press the "Windows" key and the "R" key on your keyboard simultaneously to display the "Run" dialog box.Type "regedit" into the text box and click "OK" to view your computer's registry.It’s better to have a piece slightly larger than too small.Once your piece has been applied and fully dry, go back using a razor and carefully cut the excess wall paper off.
