Uses for Leftover Wallpaper

There were quite a few large pieces of wall paper left from our bathroom remodel and also about a half of a roll that was uncut.     I used the large pieces to line the center of our bathroom cabinet doors.......

There was enough left in the uncut roll to line the bottom of three shelves.

  I am so pleased with the result that I may go back and get another roll to complete the rest of the cabinets.

I didn't get a photo of the cabinets before I lined the door with wall paper,  but I did remember to before the doors were painted.

We have tons of storage in the bathroom cabinets for extra linens and decorating items that I'm not using but don't want to get rid of yet.

I have several wicker baskets that are filled with  "necessities"

I use the under the sink cabinets to store bath mats,  extra bath towels,  and wall decor that you may recognize from previous theme's in the bathroom.   

I have extra trash cans and toilet brushes stored in the under cabinets.     I keep all the cleaning products in the utility room which is right across the hall from the guest bath.

This winter  I may tweak the guest bath a little more.....

But for now,   I love all the changes that have been made!


  1. You need to come help me get organized better. Sometimes I feel like I am just moving things around from one spot to another, then another and feel like I never get organized after all!

  2. Great idea. I use leftover wallpaper to line drawers, too. xo Diana

  3. Wow...the wallpaper makes the bathroom cabinets so finished and very pretty!!! I have used wallpaper to line my hutch drawers, but never thought of using it for the bathroom! Pinned!

  4. Good Morning Penny
    Love your ideas on what to do with left over wallpaper. Plus it looks so pretty in the cabinets. Just adding something pretty like that makes such a difference and I love when I look at something and it looks pretty. Great ideas Penny

  6. You are so inspirational, Penny! But, then I've told you that before..
    I have lots of wallpaper left over..and have used it in dresser I'm going to use some in the betcha. What a treasure hold of idea's we can find in our blogs..better than any magazine. Your blog is one of the most inspiring...*sigh*

  7. What a beautiful idea- I refaced the fronts of some of my cupboards and now can dress up the insides too! This is a game changer for putting away clean linens too I would smile every time I opened a door up to see this inside - I Love it!

  8. Good ideas like the wallpaper on the insides of the cupboards. I often use left over bits of wallpaper to revamp things in the home ( Love the blog too, Cheers!

  9. What a beautiful idea!. The wallpaper makes the cabinet awesome.

  10. I bought a roll of wallpaper and gave my kitchen cupboards a revamp last year. I mixed my own chalk paint and totally changed the look of it. Here is a link to my transformation.
