Harlequin Wrapping Paper in My Hutch

I have had this harlequin wrapping paper since last year, Christmas I think, when I bought it at Hobby Lobby. It has been sitting in my closet waiting to be used on a project. Manuela at The Pleasures of Homemaking (LOVE her blog, address is thepleasuresofhomemaking.blogspot.com) used it on the back of a piece in her dining room a while back and I decided to do the same. I am thrilled with how it looks! It is just taped on there. I like to change things so I didn't want it too permanent. I also hung 2 rooster pictures beside it that I got on clearance at Kirklands several months ago. I am working on something I am going to hang on each side of that kitchen window. Hope it turns out the way I want. I'll be sure to show you when I'm finished. Have a wonderful Wed.! My parents are going to keep my son this afternoon and I am going shopping so you know I'll have a great day!!!

That looks incredible! I love harlequin patterns to begin with, but combined with your other decor, it is just fantastic!

What a lovely room! The harlequin is gorgeous and your dishes really stand out against it. I love your rooster topiary on the table.
Beautiful.

Looks great, Angie! I got a smaller harlequin print paper from Hobby Lobby online and used it in a bookcase in my den.

That looks great! I have red toile fabric taped into the back of one of my hutches - and I borrowed the idea from Manuela too!

Hi Angie! I love it! Your rooms are always just perfect. The paper really adds some punch and I love how you've dressed your cabinet too.
Have fun shopping!
Be a sweetie,

Very nice changes you made. I heard that wall paper is coming back again. I read a blog that featured bead board, as a backsplash, is coming back. I can't remember where I saw the pictures, though.
Your house is so charming. So homey. I am trying to go back to the cosy feel these days.
Stop over anytime and I would love to have you as a follower, even though I still am just getting started.
Have a good day.

This looks so awesome. I may have to "borrow" your idea. Your hutch is always so inspiring and gives me great ideas. I invite you to my blog, I'd be honored if you visited. It's new

Angie, that is so you! It is the perfect background for your hutch, and fits just right with every thing in that room! :)

I hope you had a wonderful afternoon shopping! :)

It looks very very pretty... and I love your rooster pic's.

Angie said...

Just beautiful, I had some shelves I thought about doing the same with some red paper I have, been a little nervous about it, I think you have inspired me to try.

Love and prayers.

Your home is just lovely. I could sit and dream all day long. I wish you could come over and move some of my things around for me - I seem to get stuck leaving things as they are forever. I admire how you move things around and change things for the seasons. Very, very pretty! Hugs, Patti

Miss Janice said...
