Wallpaper Dillema

I'm sure I have mentioned this before, but we're still working on the kitchen.  We have the back splash and counter tops attached and the shelves above the sink hung.  Now, it's time to think about wallpaper.  Now, the paper that is currently there isn't bad, but it is a bit dated, and curling up at the edges.  I tried pulling it off the wall, but quickly found that the previous owners papered directly onto the drywall.  (sigh)  What a royal mess that is going to be to remove without having to replace all the drywall!

So after some "pinning", and thinking, I decided on  my final options.  RECIPES!  Many years ago, my mom, sister and I wallpapered a wall in my brother's room with comic pages.  Glue on the wall, smooth out the comic, then another layer of watered down glue on top of that.  Why can't I do the same with recipes?

So, now I'm on the hunt for handwritten recipes from friends and family members.  Just this wall is getting the treatment, but there is a lot of space that needs to be covered.  I can't tell you how excited I am!  Don't worry, pictures will come as the project gets underway!!  In the meantime, send me your favorite recipe, handwritten of course.
