Free Blog Background - Engraved Roses on Shabby Wood

Here's the newest layout for you to use on your blog. For this one I used a photograph of an old shabby wooden door, that I took at the antique shop where I work. The door had the best chippy white patina on it and I couldn't resist using it! I've paired up the rustic wood with some amazing antique Rose engravings and 2 cute French tags that instantly thank your guests for visiting your blog!

This free background was made to be used on a Blogger blog using the Minima template for the standard number of columns.

Follow these instructions to easily add this background to your blog:

1)Make sure you are logged in and then click "Customize" at the top of your blog.
2)Click on "Add A Gadget"
3)Scroll down the box and click on "Html/Javascript"
4)In the "Content Box" cut and paste the Html code posted below.
5)Click "Save" and you are done!

<style type="text/css">body {background-image: url(""); background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed; }</style><div id="tag" style="position:absolute; left:10px; top:30px; z-index:50;width:172px; height:51px;"><a href="" target="_blank"><img

Check back in a day or two as the 3 column version for this one is coming soon!

    I hope you can help me! :) Thank you!

    Love Silje

  6. Seriously? Hmm... I still can't see the whole thing... It still has those white areas covering it up... I don't know why you can see it right, and I can't? I even tried visiting my own site on an other computer. But I still couldn't see it right...

    Thank you for answering!!


  7. Again - thank you for answering!

    Ok! That might be the problem! :) I'll ask my boyfriend to take a look at it when he get's home.
