Holy crapsticks! Have you been to Paper Mojo yet?
I have never been so quick to whip out my wallet and commit, even with a mind bending assortment of paper like some of my favorites below...
I found this site today after seeing Jenny's amazing DIY Agate Trash Can she made using a piece of their freeform marbled paper. (She originally was using the paper as artwork).
They carry a wide array of papers and designs perfect for small projects. I bought a few pieces of 24"x 36" marbled paper (see bottom left above) that I am going to use to paper the backs of my bookcases.
(I have been tortured trying to decide on a color to paint them for years,
and paper is so much faster and easier!)
Best part was the price. $5.75 a sheet!
Less than a dollar a square foot, and there are many patterns for even less.
So besides bookcases...
I'm also thinking they have lots of great papers that would be perfect for small projects like lamps and lampshades...
and stair risers to name a few.
And lets not get started on all the knick knacks you can decoupage the shit out of!
How about you? Need a big pop of color and pattern for a small space?
