Getting my crafting on.

I've been experimenting with the vintage wallpaper from yesterday. 
First I took the box frame apart, removed one of the matting boards and then frame a small swatch of wallpaper. I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for things to add into the frame. I tried adding a few of Gman's mini trains but it didn't look quite right. 

I put the frame on top of his bedside table and was struck with a surge of inspiration.

What do you think? I'm really pleased with how they've turned out. There's still a huge amount of paper left on the roll too, so there is plenty for more projects.

I shared the photos of my upcycling on Facebook. Within ten minutes two people had messaged me offering some Thomas curtains and bedding. I was given both on the school run and rushed home to get his new curtain put up. 
The second curtain will become some cushions for his bed shortly.
I feel so blessed today.
