Wallpaper Made Easy
Wallpaper is back in vogue―and simpler to put up than ever.
PrepastedThis type of ultra-sturdy wallpaper comes with adhesive already on the back, so all you have to do is activate the glue with a damp sponge before installing it.
How to hang it: "Lay a strip on a table, dip a large sponge in a bucket of water, and wet the entire strip," says Scott Mulhern, a professional paperhanger in Hopewell, New Jersey, and the 2007 winner of the Winning Walls with Wallcovering award for residential work. "It will take to the wall beautifully." Wipe off excess paste that may seep from the edges with a clean, damp sponge.
Keep in mind: Be gentle when sponging water onto the paper. Overzealous rubbing can remove the adhesive.
