    Doing a little work in the kitchen on my rental house. I found this 2' boarder when I pulled down some back splash over the kitchen cabinets. Only one piece and very thick for wallpaper. Anyways my wife saw it and really likes it but I knew she would... I thought you all might like it also. I would guess this is from sometime in the early 1940's based on how thick the paper is and the design. The house was built in 1919.

    I wish our house had neat things like that hidden.

    Someone ripped out all the cool stuff and remodeled to crap.

    I've lived in older homes most of my life, and every time I've exposed old wallpapers etc, it's been multiple layers and each one uglier than the last, lol

    The top of it is in pretty rough shape from nails holes. I tried hard to get it off the wall with out damaging it more but glue was strong in one place and it tore.

    Even though it's damaged and because my wife likes it. I decided I'm gonna make wooden a frame for it. So she can hang it on the wall. I'll try and do a frame in some some weathered / distressed pine like old barn wood to try and make it look old.
