The textured wallpaper I used on my stairs is getting a workout, that’s for sure. It’s getting to be right up there with drop cloth on the list of materials I would like to wrap myself in.

But instead of wrapping myself in it, I wrapped my door.

Well, just the raised panels anyways. We have those boring builder standard hollow core interior doors, so the wallpaper adds just a subtle punch of detail that makes them stand out. All of the doors will get a fresh coat of paint when I’ve finished (I plan to do all the ones upstairs) which will unify the color. The possibilities for paneled doors are endless-fabric, paint, wallpaper, vinyl, etc…

What do you think? Have any of you modified your doors?

      Laura- I got it at Lowes in the wallpaper section, it’s made by Allen + Roth and they have several styles, this one is Medallion I think.

    Love it!

    1)Will this work on grooved paneled doors (aka fake wood grain)?
    2)How did you cut and measure? Tips please.
    3)Is this the type of wallpaper that will just peel off when you want to remove it?
