I am probably the most anti-diy person in the world; but I have come to realize that if I really want something doing then I have to try it myself, either that or pay someone a ridiculous amount to do it for me.
I have been wanting my hallway redone for ages as it’s not been touched at all since we moved in. I did the majority of painting before Christmas which was not too difficult and now attempting the wallpapering a bit at a time. As I have never done it before, I don’t think I’ve done too bad a job.
I purchased both the wallpaper and the paint from Graham Brown, both in the sale.
The wallpaper is paste the wall. I can’t really do a comparison to the normal paste the paper type as I’ve not used it. However from just watching others decorate this paste the wall type paper looks so much easier. No decorating table is needed, no measuring each piece and no sponging. I just pasted the wall and hung it. The hardest part for me was cutting away the excess around the edges.
I will post more pictures once the rest is done. Now I have the hang of it I may even do the rest of the house myself too.
Oh and I highly recommend ready mixed wallpaper paste too rather than attempting to mix your own.
