Great storage tip.

Where do you keep your wallpaper and flooring?  Mine has been stored, gently rolled, in some very nice under-bed boxes.


they have castors and they stack nicely

the wallpaper box

This worked OK other than the paper is not flat so they faddle about when you are cutting it and every time you want to look through what papers you have, they all have to come out and be mauled around to find the one you want.

Thanks to mini-chum Irene, who is always full of good ideas, here's the brainwave she came up with.


Under a tenner and no postage, from EBay.  This particular Tiger brand does books with 10, 20 and 40 pages.  I considered ten pages, being a cheapskate, but pushed the boat out for a twenty page version.  The theory being it will be useful for years to come as I acquire a bit more wallpaper here and there.

I settled down to happily stuffing  it full of favourite things!  Twenty full pages later I am now wondering whether to open a dolls house wallpaper shop.

  1. Hi Em!
    I think that your new wallpaper storage solution is Brilliant!
    I also have those plastic storage bins where I keep my wallpaper rolls, so I understand the frustration of trying to get them flat again when you want to use them.
    The book seems like a much more practical alternative. :))

    1. Easy peasy and with luck it can go on top of a bin and you get more storage! Marilyn

  5. This IS a great idea! Thanks to both of you for sharing. I bet it's great for roofing and tile sheets, too! Mine are all rolled up in a drawer and like you I forget what I have in there and often avoid it because it is such a hassle to mess with.
