I've never been "afraid" of patterns. My mom has sewn since I don't remember when and there has always been fabrics full of pattern and color around. I would cover everything in my home with fabric and wallpaper if my roommate (husband) would allow it. I love those Waverly ads that have the taxi cabs or newspaper bins covered in colorful fabrics with the caption "In a Waverly world..."
The laundry room is far from being done, but wallpapering the cabinets was a quick and easy Saturday job. I found the wallpaper at a local store and purchased one double roll. I could've probably used only the samples they gave me, but because this pattern had to be run a certain way, I had to purchase more. I will use the remaining to wallpaper our Guest Bathroom. Maybe. I sort of love this wallpaper and might want to save it for our permanent house. I digress.
The paper did not have adhesive on the back so I went to the local hardware store and bought wallpaper paste and a small foam roller. I removed the cabinets and sanded them a bit to rough them up, giving the adhesive more to work with. I then cleaned them with rubbing alcohol and let them dry thoroughly. When dry, I measured and cut the wall paper being sure that I knew top from bottom, so as to not put it on upside down. I rolled the paste onto the wallpaper and carefull attached it to the cabinets. Using a tool I purchased at the wallpaper shop, I flattened any kinks or bubbles. I folded the paper around the edges, cut off extra and waited for it to dry. It was a very simple process and if you've wallpapered before, it's a breeze.
