When I was a child, one of my favorite things to do was to unwrap the presents on Christmas day and my birthday. I mean come on, this is the case for just about every child, right? Tearing apart that thin, crinkly paper to get to my buried treasure was always an insurmountable pleasure. What happened to that annoying paper afterwards was none of my concern; I just wanted the present. My mother, however, never threw away the mutilated wrapping paper. She instead would use this paper for future craftwork, typically paper-mache work. In fact, the one time I was at a friends house for Christmas morning, I was fairly stunned that my friends mother didnt do precisely the same. She just collected the wreckage and put it with that weeks recycling. My mother always had neat, artistic uses for leftover paper like this, and that extends to excess or old wallpaper as well. Contrary to what many may think, wallpaper does not have to be used strictly for walls. There are all kinds of creative and fun uses for wallpaper you make not be using. Here are some of them.
If you still are not able to peel the wallpaper down with your hands, you will need to use a scraper. Again, keep your scraper as close to the wall as possible and scrape from top to bottom and horizontally across the edge of the wallpaper as you work you way down.
The origin in children's wallpaper began around 1870 and continues today. Since their inception, the wallpaper designs have been strongly influenced by literature and pop culture. The earliest works had strong religious and moral overtones. Later in the 19th century you saw more wallpaper designs stressing the importance of good behavior. In the 20th century the wallpaper has become lighter in tone and feature more engaging content. Papers have been manufactured to illustrate favorite literature, nursery rhymes, comic strip characters and works of fiction. Some examples of these are Mother Goose, Alice in Wonderland, and Cinderella.
Wallpaper Pros While many homeowners (and renters for that matter) believe that wallpaper is outdated others believe that wallpaper opens up a world of possibilities when it comes to patterns and designs for your walls. Benefits of wallpaper over paint include the array of styles and patterns to choose from, its ability to cover uneven areas on the wall, its longevity and its easy removal should you decide you don't want to use it anymore (sometimes dark colors of paint are hard to paint over).
