    Dear Clair,
    Your post is fantastic. Could you please let me know what glue would I use to wallpaper my wardrobe? Do I use wallpaper glue or any other?

  4. These are all such creative ways to use wallpaper! I NEVER would have thought to put wallpaper on my floor, but I actually really like that idea. I’ve been wanting to spruce up my kitchen for the longest time, and that might be fun and easy way to do it. I would definitely want someone to come and do it for me, though. Do you have any tips for finding someone who offers services like that?

    • Thank you ! You could always just ask your local friendly builder to see if he’d do it. My builder is used to me asking him to do things he hasn’t done before.
