DIY recycling: how to use scraps of wallpaper to customize a cabinet?
To customize a wardrobe with wallpaper, you have to pay particular attention to the choice of patterns while thinking of the final rendering. If, for example, it's a display cabinet makeover, you'll probably want to display colorful tableware on it. But do the patterns of the latter match those of the chosen wallpaper?
Depending on your taste, you can bet on a single motif or mix the wallpapers. First, start by measuring the size of your cabinet backrest. Transfer the measurements to the back of the wallpaper and apply glue to the backing. On the latter, place the first length and roll it down in order to remove the air bubbles. Remove excess glue with a damp sponge. Once the folder is covered with wallpaper, put it back in the cabinet. Then measure the dimensions of the cabinet doors, transfer to the wallpaper and cut out the lengths. Apply glue to the doors and lay the lengths one by one, without forgetting to smooth out the bubbles and clean the excess.
Few of the pieces of furniture on the market are designed down to the smallest detail. And yet, the latter makes all the difference. To give a touch of style to the drawers of your wardrobe, we are once again relying on the leftover scraps of wallpaper. You just have to line their bottoms or the internal sides, as desired. For a harmonious rendering, you can opt for a kind of patchwork of patterns by combining several varied wallpapers. Multicolored or in the same tone, the choice is yours. Either way, the redesigned drawers with scraps of wallpaper will make you love your forgotten piece of furniture again!
The wallpaper dresses the shelves and drawers of the cabinet in two steps and three movements. Another unusual DIY idea to discreetly sublimate your furniture thanks to the wall covering is to cover the external edges of the latter. That's why we can't get enough of the patterns or prints chosen. This easy little DIY will automatically divert your cabinet from its storage function by transforming it into a decorative object in its own right.

As you have probably understood, cabinet wallpaper is a great DIY idea to try but it is not the only one at all.

Reminiscent of the surface of a wall, the large doors of your dressing room can be adorned with several strips of vitamin color that will undoubtedly brighten up the bedroom.
