Speaking of wallpaper

schoolhouse_gwDecember 18, 2013

mntrdredux began a thread about wallpaper and I just had to share the snippets of a wallpaper I discovered under a layer of another paper in my kitchen years ago. The paper had torn and I peeled it back to reveal this charming but unusual paper for a kitchen. The gold highlights are actually shiny! I was cleaning out a bookcase recently and came across them again.

I really, really like that paper. I think I've seen something similar at my house. ( 1930s). I have saved some snippets myself but of course can't find them now.

I have enjoyed the recent threads about wallpaper, but the papers being used would be too fancy for my house.

That's so cool, Schoolhouse.

Does the bottom snippet have another paper on top (a flower)?

No, the bottom snippet is one piece, no layer over it. I didn't think to arrange it correctly on the scanner. It probably should have been given a half turn clockwise.

That is so cool! I would love to see a bigger slice of it.

The PO before I moved in had re-papered, a couple times. Then I painted over the wall paper (yeah I know). Currently there is bead board, so I don't think I'll get to see the entire wall with the vintage paper anytime soon.
