Recycled Newspaper Wallpaper by Lori Weitzner

While we're not typically fond of recycled newspaper products, we are quite drawn to this wallpaper made of past issues. Woven together in small strips, the bursts of color aren't overwhelming and you can often make out words and sentences!

Lori Weitzner creates beautiful wallpapers and other textiles (check out the Currents paper, which can be used as a room divider, as well) and "Newsworthy" is no exception. We love the repurposing of old issues of the news, as well as the modern feel to this ecologically thoughtful wallcovering. As far as we can tell it is available to the trade only, for $125 per roll--perhaps this could be a DIY project? We imagine, though, that it would be a pretty labor intensive one.
