Fun Uses for Faux Wallpaper

I was looking on Etsy for affordable, removable wallpaper and I found a ton that I really love.  Seriously, I want to go and wallpaper the heck out of everything now!  Here are some of my favorites; you can see the rest here.

Aren't these so great?!  And I love that you can do just about anything with them. *click on images for sources*


I'm not big on animal print, but I love how it really elevates the look of this drawer.  Such a fun way to add pattern without it being too bold or overbearing.


Framed wallpaper can be a great way to incorporate very inexpensive art into your home.  You can buy sample sheets that are 12"x24" from Spoonflower for only $5 and the selection they have is huge.


Wallpapering the inside of your closet is another great way to add a big punch of pattern and color in a small way.  I think it would be so fun to put it into a walk-in closet with a fun pendant lamp or even a mini chandelier, and a pretty floor length mirror.  You could make your closet the funnest room in the house!  Wouldn't that make getting ready a lot more fun too?


I'm sure you've seen pictures all over Pinterest of kitchen cupboards lined with wallpaper, but I love the idea of lining the medicine cabinet!  It's so playful and unexpected.  This one is on my to-do list, you know, if we end up living in a place that has a medicine cabinet...


I love the bright and bold colors in this bathroom and I think it's such a fun idea for a small space.  I'm a fan of big and bold pops of color being used in small spaces, if you couldn't already tell.


I really like the idea of using wallpaper on an accent wall, instead of paint.  I think the grasscloth used behind the TV in this family room adds great texture to a wall that you wouldn't really expect to have any depth.


This image was one of my earliest pins and even though I am really over the Chevron print, I love how the black and white make the bookshelf and the decor stand out.  I love big, graphic designs like this and black and white is one of my all-time favorite color combinations.

Faux wallpaper is such a fun way to incorporate color and pattern into parts of your home that you wouldn't think to add anything.  Plus it's great for renters and those who don't want to commit or deal with the hassle of wallpaper.  Have you used it before?  I'd love to see what you've done with it!  And if you have any favorite sources for faux wallpaper, share them in the comments.  I'd love to check them out.
