I stumbled across this picture from an old Cottage Living yesterday and it got me so inspired, I almost got out the Mod Podge and started covering some walls, an old door, whatever was in my immediate view.
What looks like wallpaper here is really just maps that have been decoupaged onto the wall. I've written before about how I just adore decorating with maps. Seriously, can't get enough of them. But, I also love here the repurposing of something traditional in a way that's totally unique. And it's a great-looking result achieved so easily (no plumb lines and booking and soaking and matching sheets of wallpaper, which can frankly be exhausting). I don't know about you, but I'm pretty partial to creative, easy, and fun over laborious and precise.
And you can decoupage any kind of paper. I love the idea of using pages from old books.
