Flocked Wallpaper Window

This is one of my favorite windows I have created to date. The reason why it is so special to me, is that not only does the old window have a story of it's own but the paper does as well. This was my first attempt at using vintage flocked wallpaper. It is truly one-of-a-kind. I purchased the samples from a wallpaper warehouse in Illinois. As I understand, these papers date as far back as the 1930's. I would LOVE to have several roles of this stuff. How cool would it be to cover the walls in a bedroom? Unfortunately, 1 roll of this stuff will run you $325!!! This particular piece was on display at the RETHINK, RECYCLE, REDESIGN exhibit held in conjunction with the Festival of the Arts back in April. Now it is available for purchase up at Tulips Home & Gift Store in Norman, OK.

I appreciate you stopping by and hope you will do a few things for me before you leave. Tell your other blog friends about me, and be sure to become a follower of Curly Q Mosaics so that you can be updated on my latest news and events!
