For today’s DIY section I thought I might feature one of the projects from my latest book. Turning a boring old blind into something amazing. All you need is a length of wallpaper to turn a boring as anything roller blind into something spectacular. You can showcase a vintage printed-paper, a hand blocked paper my only advice would be as you are only using the smallest remnant use something special.

Hand blocked, or vintage papers have a depth to them that you just don’t get when you buy off the shelf.

Start with making sure that the papers thickness is similar to that of the blind, then cut it to fit, making sure of course that you have layed the blind on a flat surface.

Glue paper to blind – you might need to use an adhesive or your paper may even come pre glued the trick is to work from one end to the other. Smooth away any bubbles let it dry and hang.

Voila!
