Wallpaper from the 1970's
  • Me likie.
  • uh.... didn't we just spend the last 30 years trying to forget this stuff? no really, some of those are retro-cool. like the giant orange "owl-eyeball" dots. but some of them... well, let's just say i wouldn't want to have those specific patterns on the wall if i staggered home drunk, 'cause sitting here sober they're making me seasick.
  • egad, the '70s. i'm with caution. these patterns were bad enough first time around! next they'll be bringing back leisure suits and shirts with scenes on them. (i have to laugh when i see some of the styles *today*. those kids are gonna be SO embarrassed they wore this crap in 20 or 30 years.) *feels old*
  • Dy-no-mite!
  • My in-laws spent the better part of two weeks getting this kind of thing *off* their walls. Imagine their surprise when they come over to find I've put it up in our house!
  • This makes me want to have a key party. Okay, most things do.
  • Makes me want to drink a few Harvey Wallbangers and get down on the shag carpet.
  • I remember having some of these in our house when I was really little. Luckily (?) all in shades of beige - I don't think I could stand crimson.
  • Cool. They don't have anything like the irridescent gold paper with velvet-like black flocking that covered the walls of my parent's hallways, though, and I'm pretty sure that was vintage '70s. For those of us who are wallpaper commitment-phobic, there's always blik. The oversized wall decals have made their way to Target.
  • That "Beyla" paper keeps MOOOOVIING!! Don't make me sit in the chair. Not the chair. Please, PLEASE. Not the chair!
