10 Creative Ideas for Leftover Peel & Stick Wallpaper

10 Creative Ideas for Leftover Peel & Stick Wallpaper

Whenever you have a wallpaper project chances are you are going to have some leftover pieces that are just too beautiful to throw away. So what are some things you can do with these left over pieces? Well I've come up with 10 ideas for what to do with leftover pieces of wallpaper.


1. Drawer Liner

Jazz up the inside of a drawer by measuring and cutting excess wallpaper to fit. If you have pasted wallpaper you could probably just place the piece in the bottom of the drawer. If you have peel and stick you stick the piece into the drawer. 

I can see this inside a favorite make up drawer, lingerie drawer, baby's drawer or even the classic junk drawer.
