I started cleaning in the kitchen and decided that the wallpaper just didn't need any more scrubbing, it needed a new look. I have been wanting to change things in there and brighten. I had a roll of Beadboard wallpaper and decided maybe to try that. I didn't know if I had enough. I didn't want to remove the old wallpaper and had heard as long as you prime over the old wallpaper you could paper right over it. I had the primer and the paper and I had the time.
I started by priming just the little wall that is between the two pantries to see how it looked and then I could continue if I liked it. If not I could always pull it all off and do something different.
I always measure my wallpaper and add an inch for the top and the bottom just to make sure it fits. I start my cutting on a square by putting the wallpaper into the corner of a table, then I measure the length, it makes my cutting so much more squared off to start with.
My first piece went up and I liked it already. I will trim the extra off after it drys because when the paper is wet it just seems to tear. At this point I went ahead and primed the rest of the walls so that they had time to dry while I was papering the first area. It went rather quickly even though I had to wet the paper in the bathtub. My basement is a mess and I know I have a wallpaper tray but finding it would take forever.
It turned out so nice, I love it. It really makes my area look so neat and clean.
