Vintage Wallpaper

Aren't these cool?! They are vintage wallpaper borders I found at an antique shop. They were still in the box...she said they are selling the stuff from an old hardware shop that closed its doors years ago and is like a time capsule. I'd love to see that place!

I only bought about 24 ft of each design, but I could go back and get enough for a small room if I could think where to use it. Or maybe I could just use what I have to edge some shelves or something. Any ideas?

O-o-o-o-o-h, that Dutch border is SO cute!!! (the other one is cute too tho!) But I am Dutch (at least way back I am) and I am wondering if you were wanting to sell these borders? Or were you looking for ideas for yourself? I know they are not real pastelly and country-chic style - but it still is cute! But wouldn't it look cute in just a white room? I don't really know much about decorating - (like nothing!) but the borders are great - just let me know if you would like to sell the Dutch one!

Thanks - Diane from Michigan

Oooooh nice! Very cute, I just got a box of vintage wall paper, what a coincidence. And yes I have some nice ideas. First you could frame them, use them inconjunction with some pictures in a frame or line the back of a hutch. That would look nice. You could also use them to decorate some books, cups and accessories for a desk or something. That would be really cute. I have to go through my box yet. If I get any more ideas I'll be sure to let you know. Or just pop by in a week. I might have done something with them by then.
