Feeling the Frankie...

Who says wallpaper should only be used on the wall? A quick trip through the laminating machine and yesterday's wallpaper suddenly becomes today's lino.

Add a vintage chair (another piece from an eBay estate sale job lot) and a few other bits and bobs and suddenly I have the beginnings of a studio reading corner. You can just imagine that the pieces in the photo have been sourced at no great cost from various op shops and markets to provide inspiration to the artist, who uses this corner to relax and regroup.

And what exactly is on those shelves?

And who is your furry little friend? Is Mr Tibbs jealous?

That was Weasly, Mr Nibbs' predecessor. I realised I didn't actually have a Mini Nibbs yet :-(

mmm i like it as lino. you could glue it down, then lacquer it, instead of laminating.. :)

Glue it down and lacquer it? But then it would be permanent (and where would I put the books I removed from that cuby of my shelves?) and take time! ;-)

Nah, laminating's quick and easy. But your idea would work really well if I ever decide to start on dollshouse number 18...
