CED- $1 Wallpaper and me

So I like to go to Renovation Station and buy cheap wallpaper. It is only $1. Renovation Station is run by Habitat for Humanity. Homeowners can donate unused and used items which they sell at a very low price to raise money. This is what I can do with it.
I covered my sketchbooks to make them look uniform and beautiful. I will add the year on the side. I just haven't created my stickers yet. Now when I sit them back on my self they will be pleasing to the eye.
I also use it to cover Christmas presents because I really hate cheap gift wrapping paper. Wallpaper is so durable that it doesn't rip around the corners.
I know there are so many more uses. What do you use it for?

What a great idea! I haven't seen wallpaper at my local "re-store" (which is the habitat for humanity store... but next time I need to look more closely for it. Love what you've done!

I like the idea for covering sketch books. Very nice! I like to line drawers with wallpaper, and also back book shelves or cabinets with glass doors.

I forgot to mention I used it on a bookcase and to line my linen closet. Thanks for reminding me Ricki.

I love the idea of using wall paper for covering sketchbooks. They look great! I bet they would be great for collage too!

Your sketchbooks look so lovely. I used a scrap of wallpaper once to cover my daughter's school reading diary because it would be durable carried in her bag for a year.

Fantastic idea! Next time I'm in the city I'll find one of those re-stores. I love paper, it's so expensive at craft stores, etc. You are so articles, I love your women's faces. Terah
