Kitchy Kitchen Wallpaper

This is a really cute wallpaper and you are recycling too. You need to decide on a color scheme for your kitchen. Paint walls your desired color.

Then you need to save all the labels from cans of food that go with your kitchen colors. Get your family and friends involved they mostly likely won't mind saving them for you. Trim the labels down so that all the nutritional information is gone. I personally like Campbells labels.


Now to enable easy removal apply sizing to your walls. This is very easy just brush it on the walls and let it dry completely. Next apply unpasted wallpaper paste to each label and start applying them to your wall in a random pattern. When you are through you can cover this with varnish to make cleaning of your walls easier.

If you have not covered the walls completely and have only applied the labels in certain areas make sure you cover these with varnish.

Hope you enjoy.

This is a very cute idea for a kitchen. I have seen other rooms in a house wallpapered with pages from books. A very frugal way to recycle and decorate!

I was at someone's house recently, that had done something like this, but she'd not shellaced or varnished over it. She'd painted the walls and backsplash plain white & had glued pictures of loose apples & some were bushels of apples, around on the walls every so often. It was interesting. She might not have been finished with her project, yet, I don't know. The apple pictures felt like they were maybe cut from wallpaper borders & had almost a 3-D effect.
