I get the BHG e-newsletters, and noticed a link to a slideshow called "Projects Using a Roll of Wallpaper" in my latest one. The idea of dipping my toe into the wallpaper world through a small project was appealing, so I clicked through. Some of the ideas weren't my cup of tea, but one that resonated was a wallpaper covered furniture...they specifically showed a headboard and a dresser. This trick could be a great way to jazz up an old piece of furniture that needs a facelift or a new one that needs a dose of personality.
With some strategically placed wallpaper (probably on the inset panels), both pieces would get a lot more interesting!
