“I am in the middle of a wallpaper frenzy, yes that is wallpaper on the fridge. I am revolting against white, more white and stainless steel.”
Holey moley, I think I can die a happy woman now, having seen this kitchen, is what I say. The Slide Show is growing with submissions every hour — Let’s see yours –>

    These are all so incredible! I can’t pick a favorite but I love the wallpaper collage behind the stove a lot. And how that one bathroom with the trees looks with the owls on it.

      Thank you! I also did the same thing as a backsplash for my sink, but it’s so full of dirty dishes at the moment I didn’t want to take a picture 🙂

    I am digging on the insane wallpaper frenzy kitchen!! It has given me an idea. I have a fabulous KitchenAid/Hobart dishwasher in avocado green (circa 1969) but sadly the front panels are rusted and in yucky condition. I have been debating trying to repaint it but now I’m thinking it’s time to add another wallpaper collage to my kitchen! Perhaps if I sealed it really well, with… something, not sure, it would hold up to normal wear & tear?

    The 1958 duplex I just bought has paint over wallpaper. I have no idea what the paper looks like. Does anyone know whether there is there any way to remove the paint and save it???
