Faux It Stone Wall (wallpaper)

Medium
I wish I could afford real stone walls but this was easy and fun and i saved a lot of money
starting with a wallpaper and making sure you lay your 1st piece on the floor cutting the right measurement you need for the height of your wall and then lay the 2drop next to it making sure you match the pattern before cutting the next drop
Using wall paper glue on the 1st drop paare the whole back and starting at the top of the wall working your way down using a large plastic scrapper to remove any air bubbles as u go if I find you get some you can’t move out one of the side edges pop a little pin hole and get the air bubble out . Next step is to now match the drop on the floor (2) with the 3rd drop making sure you again keep lining up the pattern before cutting .. now again paste and pla E this drop butting it up against the 1st drop now continue these steps until your wall is complete
Using a ladder is needed to help with reachibg up the top and it is easier to use it and slowly work your way down the ladder as your working your way down and along the wall
Now time to put the room back together .. and here we go here is part of the wall completed
sorry for the dark picture I will fix when I get a better pic I have marked this as a medium task however once you do get the hang of it (pardon the pun) it’s actually very easy it also does help is you have someone to help if it is your 1st attempt at wallpaper

    Not only do I love this, but it looks as good as the real thing and can be replaced easily if you decide to change it! You have inspired me to try something similar! thank you!!
