Hanging Wallpaper Borders

Measure wall width corner to corner. Each border strip should extend to full width of wall plus 1/2" to extend around corners.

Submerge border in water tray for prescribed time, book by loosely folding accordion fashion, and apply to the wall. If the border is being applied over wallcovering, do not wet border but use a vinyl to vinyl adhesive. Hang border, wrapping corners by about 1/4". Smooth as you go. Make sure you wipe with clean sponge to remove excess paste.
