I love a rainy day...

I do love a rainy day once in a while, and it is a pretty nasty windy rainy one here today. I feel like it gives me permission to change things up a bit in the routine. When little one asked me what we were going to do today I told her we would be staying home all day and that she could play with all her toys and watch some of her favorite tv shows. She was thrilled at that plan.
Anyway, I decided I would spend the day doing some crafty things. I worked on some more clipboards and then wallpapered my refrigerator, yup, that wasn't a typo, I did.

I have been so sick of the mess on it all the time. Little one doesn't play with these things enough anymore to justify this eye sore.
I found a roll of really vintage rose wallpaper at the thrift store last week for seventy-five cents.
I imagine I will get tired of it at some point-and at that point I will figure out how to remove it, but for now I really love it!

Now we are off to go make those cookies I promised her.

Yes, rainy days can be fun!

Amy, it looks great. It so totally matches the rest of your kitchen/dining room that all of those out there in internet land can't see...but I have had the pleasure to sit in and enjoy some wonderful company and a cup of tea.

how funny are you!!! i recently bought a new fridge that seems very huge and white in my kitchen...i've literally spent hours looking for some kind of a vinyl "skin" or decal to cover it with. Can't justify the wallpaper since it is brand new, but you're onto the idea! I think someone could make $$ coming up with a skin like one you'd put on your laptop!!!
love it!!!

I have never heard of doing this before. It looks great! The paper is pretty. Now, I wish I had a fridge to cover!
