Hi loves this is a very simple way to glam up a standard wall
Step 1: If you have any outlets on the wall remove the plate
Step 2: Remove the faux brick vinyl paper from the package/ measure the wall and the wall paper and then cut.
Step 3: Be sure the second cut piece matches up to the first.... and continue the process throughout the entire wall.
The process is simple but please take your time, happy install

    I loved your calm voice and detailed instructions. You gave me the confidence to try this by remaining calm and continuing to move forward when the alignment was difficult. The end result was Beautiful! I don't know your profession but I think you would be a great teacher due to your calm approach. Thank you for sharing!

    Always take the light switch covers off before wallpapering.

    That way you need to cut only a little circle around the protruding outlets. Simple screw the cover back on over the paper once the paper has dried.


    It's a lot easier, and more forgiving, than cutting against the edge of the cover.
