“Retro Wallpaper”

Description from Deb Harding: I have this wallpaper sample book that has all these cool papers with 1950's/1960's designs. Going to make some kind of art projects, put in pictures, etc. These Lillypilly things just remind me of them so much. I'm into the whole mid-century modern retro thing. Have my Mom's old dinette with the lime green chairs. Have these 2 cool pedestal chairs that need re-upholsturing. Saw same chairs on Ebay $500 each!!!! Have a Heywood-Wakefield vanity.
Spare bedroom has my old 1950's bed. Guess
I'm living inthe past.

Now I'm trying to figure out what I can do with these things. Hmmmm.....

    Everything old is new again!
    Why not frame the wallpapers in odds and ends of frames. Then create a random mural of all the framed colors on the wall. 3-D and colorful and eclectic!

    Funky! Building on Julies idea, I see a black “box frame” (don’t know the eng word for it. Glass to protect it. I think it’s cool when the pices are put a bit out of the backpice/background so it pops out. Might be able to stack it in some way.
