I was so excited to put up my beadboard wallpaper, that it didn't matter to me that it was not pre-pasted or that it came with no directions...and never mind that I hadn't hung wall paper in over 10 years...
Something I did learn is that wallpaper and "winging it" does not really go well together. I also love that the directions on the can of wallpaper paste were "Follow the instructions as directed on the wallpaper package."
So, what the heck, I "wung" it.
I slapped that paste on, did not "book" my paper and ended up glueing the edges of my paper together with wallpaper paste and a paint brush. I prayed that when I got up in the morning, it hadn't all rolled off of the wall onto the floor.
I know the whole thing was very "I love Lucy."
I got lucky.
It all stayed up and I was able to hide my uneven measuring with the molding.
Thank goodness paint also hides a multitude of sins, so it didn't matter that the men who built my house in 1959 obviously couldn't draw a straight line as all of my walls are "wonky".
I love the result. It was great money spent for the impact. I would say it was less than $40 with the molding, and I still have a ton of paper and paste left over...it's a very simple project..
after you read the directions.
Stop over to Rhoda's for the beadboard wallpaper party!
p.s. I was asked about my faux paneled door project and there was no return email address, but I used standard 1- 1/4 inch trim.
