About this deal
Start with a plumb line. Do this by drawing a vertical line away from the corner or start point you will begin to hang the wallpaper. This line should be marked off at width slightly shorter than your paper so that you can run the edge of the paper down the line and over the beginning corner. Be sure to use a long level or hang a plumb line to start off straight and correct. Your whole project hangs on the straightness of this line! Trust me, your walls and corners are not straight on their own, so you have to find and make your own straight line. Allow the paste to activate for 5 to 10 minutes. Your wallpaper will have instructions particular to it on the label, so refer to those for the timing needed. I would activate two strips at a time and once the first strip was hung, activate the next two so I could work continuously. Do not activate them all at once. You can’t move that fast through this process!
It dents and dings easily. It isn’t as hardy as I was hoping. Below is a photo of our guest room. The bedside table in the room scrubbed the wall lightly while I was moving furniture in the space and this is what I was left with. Sadly, it has happened in a couple of places in the room since I wallpapered it. It’s a bit frustrating because once wallpaper rips or dents there isn’t much you can do about it. Air bubbles are super noticeable. Installing isn’t difficult but because of the grooves and lines if there are any air bubbles you’re going to notice! The lines help to make the install easier, however they also draw attention to any blemish on the wall. Keep that in mind while hanging. This isn’t a worry when installing traditional beadboard. If you’re walls are not extremely smooth I would skip the wallpaper.Use an Exacto knife to trim the corners and edges. I used a metal spatula pressed into the seams and ran the knife along the edge for a clean cut. Be cautious if your paper is super wet because it can tear. Make sure your blades are sharp to avoid this. Unfold your wallpaper – be very careful. This paper in particular had a tendency to rip in the beadboard crevices if I wasn’t careful.

Line up the side of your wallpaper with your plumb line and gently begin to lay the paper down from the line sideways. Use your hand to kind of roll the paper onto the wall. Pull up and rub flat until you get it laid down without any major wrinkles.We often hang it on ceilings in the older houses in Brisbane as a way to disguise ugly ceilings that would otherwise be a mission to paint.
