How To....



I'm having so much fun, conceptualizing and styling these gorgeous 'how to' projects for The Women's Weekly. It's amazing how off-cuts and bits of wallpaper and fabrics can be reused to completely transform your home and interior. This project was a favourite (and is in this month's issue) - you know how much I'm completely in love with wallpaper and it was so inspiring to be able to put some of my favourite Signature Prints and Cole & Son offcuts to good use. It's just such a pretty result - I can't help but open up my old cupboard to take a peak at the pretty patterns inside....

Wow I'm having a how to weekend as well. Am posting photos in next couple of days. Your cupboard looks great! Happy Weekend.

What a gorgeous cupboard. I have been thinking of finishing off the inside of a built-in that I made from MDF with wallpaper to save me painting it over and over. It would also be a nice suprise when you open the doors!
Now...to find some nice wallpaper :)

That really looks lovely, I can see why you keep wanting to open the doors! I'm thinking about my daughters' old wardrobe that I've painted glossy pink on the outside - it would look great papered inside, I must find a print that suits. Thanks for the inspiration.

This is adorable! It inspires me to transform an old armoire I have that I'm currently using as my shipping station (boxes, mailing labels, etc.) It'd be so nice to open it and see something cheery!
Hoping you're having a wonderful weekend Shannon!

I love it Shannon!! So colourful and pretty. I recently wallpapered inside the drawers on a vintage bedside, but mine was quite subtle as I used a white on white Florence Broadhurst wallpaper. This is gorgeous.

Amazing work Shannon! Stunning outcome not that I expected anything less! xx

Angela Henrie said...

Oh, I just love that! Just leave it open, I say.

Terri said...

Love this! It's perfect for people (like me) who love the look of wallpaper but are afraid to commit to putting it up on their walls.

Flotsam Friends said...

This looks fantastic... You've just given me an idea... Maybe I could use off cuts on the inside of the frames for my Flotsam Friends dolls?? Thanks for your continued creativity. Pruxxx

I read this article last night by chance, and it was my favourite thing in the magazine. So pretty and colourful Shannon I just adored it.
