How to create old from new: DIY Vintage Wall Decor

I love all things vintage and vintage inspired. I especially love the look of old, worn wall paper...all torn and tattered. I think about what my grandparents’ house would look like now with all of its vintage charm. I remember my grandma‘s gossip chair and the old rotary telephone that would ring so loudly that it would startle me. I can still see them sitting in that little hallway between the living and dining rooms. These childhood memories were the inspiration for this wall decor.
