Hang First Strip

  • Start at your plumb line and ensure the pattern is right side up.
  • Apply the top half of the strip to the wall, slightly overlapping the ceiling and adjoining wall.
  • Slide the wallpaper into position, lining up with the plumb line.
  • Gently press the strip to the wall with a smoothing brush. Be careful not to stretch the wallpaper while positioning.
  • Smooth the bottom half into place.
  • Smooth the entire strip, working from the center outward, forcing out any air pockets.
  • Wash off excess paste with a damp sponge and clean water.
