Book page wallpaper isn't a new idea. But, it's a worthy idea to revisit if you want to add some charm and texture (or hide unsightly "charm and texture") to your wall without investing in expensive wallpaper panels.
Using just a stack of pages from old books, a jug of wallpaper paste, and a credit card, interior designer Kara Paslay and her mom covered an entire room together (ceiling included).
If you can't bring yourself to tear apart your treasured books, this project would make excellent use of outdated encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases and maps, trashy novels, and even comic books (especially for a kids' room). What I love is how the wallpaper can take on a wonderfully aged gradient if you find old pages in various stages of yellowing.
And if you accidentally mess up — simply grab more pages to work with. It's a simple, green and low-cost way of dressing up your wall!
