Vintage Wallpaper Giveaway!!!

Did you know that I have a vintage shop on Etsy? At gingerscraps I sell random odds-n-ends that I find when I am out thrifting. I love hunting for discarded treasures! Garage sales, flea markets, and thrift stores are a great way to spend a day. I get so excited when I find something wonderful that someone else just throws out.
One of my favorite thrifting finds was last year when I found a huge collection of vintage wallpaper. I purchased the whole lot and loaded it in my car. As I headed down the road, my mind was spinning with crafting and decorating ideas. After I had my fun with it, there was so much left that I decided to sell it by the yard on Etsy.

I would like to offer you a chance to win some of my vintage wallpaper. Just leave a comment and include a great crafting or decorating idea that uses about one yard of wallpaper. On Thursday, 5/20, I will pick a random winner. Check back on Saturday 5/22, when I will announce the winner. The winner will be able to pick 2 yards of any of the cool wallpapers from my shop. Here are some pictures of wallpapers you could win:








I have a lot more in my shop so check it out! Have fun!

Beautiful! I would apply it to a coffee table and then put a coat of resin over it! Kind of like this little guy!: http://blog.craftzine.com/map_cofeetable-1.jpg
