- make sure the wall behind it is SUPER smooth...every little tiny bump, nick it will show!
- I used a wallpaper paste (even if the wallpaper is prepasted) especially made for hish humidity areas (kitchen and bath)
- use a level to make sure your first piece is straight. beadboard has lines, so it is an easy thing to do. once the wallpaper glue dries, if you have your first piece not straight, the rest of the wallpaper will not be straight. I kept checking with each piece...peace of mind
- invest in one of those plastic "smothers" (I think it was just a couple of dollars), it does wonders when smothing the bubbles out.
- if at all possible get a someone to help you when you hang it up...4 hands are better than 2
- when cutting around outlets, plumbing, make sure you do that as a "dry" fit, before the glue is activated...will save you lots of headaches!
- as far as the corners, the outer corner just wrap the wallpaper around it, as if you are wrapping a present. Inside corners, use the handy plastic tool and gently push the wallpaper in the corner, then attach the rest on the corner wall.
Hope this helps!
It really is an easy project. Happy wallpapering :)
Have you ever hung regular wallpaper? Essentially inside and outside corners of beadboard
Don't be intimidated. Beadboard wallpaper is extremely user friendly! After you use it once and see how easy it is to work with and how great it looks, you will be looking for other projects to use it on. :)
