Thursday night I had a very unexpected call saying my wallpaper had arrived, which meant it was at least a week early from what I was originally told not that I'm complaining! I've never wallpapered before but this turned out to be a good project, not difficult, not easy but certainly worth all the trouble.
Costs for one 8x10ft wall:
Wallpaper - 4 rolls $100
Time taken to hang paper: 3.5hrs
The original wall was a soft butter yellow, I had read online about using an acrylic product called sizing which stops the wallpaper from drying as quickly which enables the wallpaper to be adjusted for better positioning. Plus, the sizing can be tinted (as seen above) which will blend better with the color of the wallpaper being used to reduce the ability to see between the seams of the paper just in case!
Voila, my masterpiece! Good luck to anyone that comes over to my place and tries to find the seems on this wallpaper, I could hardly find them when I was looking for them to run the seam roller over them!
If you've been thinking about wallpapering, I say do it! I did this project all by myself, just me and my two hands (I'm a perfectionist and my man is not, ergo he was not invited to participate in this project. I will say that it seems as though he was relieved about this because he brought up once that he didn't think he would be good at wallpapering....)
Please not the time listed is simply just for the hanging of the wallpaper, it did not include all the moving of stuff nor the moving back of stuff!
Now I'm trying to figure out what else I can wallpaper.....
