I've always wanted to

I've always wanted to wallpaper a room in book pages, and today I am doing just that.  this is just the sample board.  We're doing the bathrooms (above a tile base) in a restaurant with a London Deli vibe.  I found AMAZING books at the local vintage book emporium Midway Books, including one called At Home With the Royal Family that has appendixes listing all of the Queen's household.  Things like Swans, Keeper of The.  And Travelling Yeoman.  And another with line drawings of all the grand old houses of London.

Can't wait to get started!


  1. So cool! How are you treating it so the paper won't get soiled by any moisture? Inquiring minds want to know...

  2. Several coats of clear poly top coat in a satin finish should seal water out. (And make it not super easy to remove this should they ever desire to do so.)

    The bathrooms are looking awesome. can't wait to share all the restaurant projects next week!

  3. I hope you do a tutorial for us. I've always wanted to do exactly this with botanicals from a book. I saw a kitchen Laura Day did years ago on Trading Spaces using book prints of insects and it was fantastic! I love how you're thinking outside the box on this one!



Let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
