Wallpaper beyond the walls

It's a funny thing, but just the sound of the word "wallpaper" makes my other half, Mr. Hunter, shiver. I think there is nothing he hates more than wallpaper when it comes to home decor. Poor him, when the time comes for us to decorate our home...

Anyway, I thought of starting a new section on M&P that sort of falls a bit under the Home & Crafts, but that is not necessarily made of tutorials, just ideas and inspiration... I couldn't think of a better name for it than 4Home, I know... I'm open for suggestions, but in the future you can look for more posts under the label Home Ideas.

And here is the first post! I recently collected some ideas of what you can do with wallpaper when you extend its use beyond the traditional "let's fill the entire wall" approach. I hope you like it, and if you have more ideas, I'd love to hear about them @craftyblog

Add a charming touch to draws and cupboards interiors.

A lot of these pictures came from a selection of ideas displayed at Better Home & Gardens or Apartment Therapy, others from a collection of posts on Pinterest and a couple of them I came across on google images when searching for inspiration.
