  1. Love this!

  2. Oh my! You really work hard for each photo shoot, don’t you?!!

  3. this photo is gorgeous!!

  4. Thank you so much! ~M.

  5. Actually, this wallpaper was originally meant as the table runner for the dinner party we had. I just thought I’d kill two birds and shoot the table setting while I was at it. But when that photo shoot tanked, I decided to reuse the wallpaper for the Wall Vignette challenge, so I really didn’t do any extra work for September. However, I really do take styling very seriously and really, really, really want to improve my blog photos, so I’m not opposed to going the extra mile to stage my challenges the best they can be! ~M.

  6. What a great project! And wonderful instructions – I thought this would be beyond me, but now I’m keen to give it a go!

  7. Awesome! I’m happy to hear you find my instructions easy to follow, therefore, less intimidating. 😀

  8. So lovely! Architectural tiles are a fave, but you can’t always find them here. I love your solution of using embossed paper…it creates the same look and gives you so much more flexibility. Great job!!

    I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award because you redo things beautifully, uniquely and usually for not that much money.

  10. I adore tin tiles and wish I could find them easily. Then again, when I do, I can’t find the heart to shell out $20-$50 for one tile! This was my way of getting the look without paying the price. Glad you liked it! ~M.

  11. Gorgeous! I was wondering how you got that great background for your photo. Thanks!

  12. Glad you liked it, Aimee! ~M.

  13. Your final result came out beautifully. Such a great idea and cost-effective too. I’ll have to remember this one!

  14. Hi! I nominated you for a blog award. http://charlieandjo.wordpress.com/2013/09/12/one-lovely-blog-moi/

  15. Great way of repurposing the tile and love that it doesn’t cost a lot.

  16. Thank you! I was nervous throughout the process that it wouldn’t give the look I wanted it to, but I think it turned out alright!

  17. I’ve always luved the embossed wallpaper but never thought of making it into tiles…great creation!

  18. Lovely! I was teaching some painting and decorating students how to do this last year. I like the imperfect, shabby chic look you’ve created.

  19. Thank you! I’m so glad you like it! ~M.

  20. That’s the beauty of paint! You can’t do whatever you want with it! ~M.

  24. What a compliment! Thank you! It was a very easy and imperfect project. Can’t mess it up! ~M.

  25. I just want to get really good at photo styling! Thanks for the follow!

  26. What a great idea you have here! So cool to see someone else has discovered the beauty of paintable wallpaper; I’ve not tried the patterned ones like yours, but may give them a go thanks to your post!

  27. There are so many great patterns out there in paintable wallpapers, yet I have only worked on this one pattern – twice. Haha. Thanks for the comment! ~M.

  28. Awesome. This idea is a keeper. Thanks for sharing. I found you via Twigg Studios. Have a good week. 🙂
