If it helps (not providing any code so don't shoot me d.i.c) :ph34r:

If you want to display your wallpaper, you can get its location from the registry. So have a look at finding where that registry key is, and how to read from registry (involves api).

Once you have the location its a simple process to show it in a picturebox.

If you want to show in an image box what your screen is showing, have a look at screenshots... take a screenshot, save it to a file, imgbox displays said file.

Not really sure what you want exactly but hope some of that helps. Post some code, explain a little better, and I'm sure people can help. :)
