Wall Paper Application Method

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Fabric for the walls - measure the wall space to be covered then determine the amount of fabric required for the wall space.  Keep in mind the repeat of the pattern, allowing for any waste that may occur when the design is lined up.  Purchase additional yardage (recommending 3 yd) in case a panel needs to be replaced. 
  • Scissors
  • Dropcloth
  • Liquid starch
  • Push pins for dry wall or painter’s tape for plaster or paneled walls
  • Utility knife
  • Metal edge straight edge
  • Paint roller
  • Roller pan
  • Sponge
  • Another person to help

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Wash the fabric then cut off the selvage. 
  2. Wash the walls and allow to dry completely.
  3. Cut the fabric slightly longer than needed for the height of the wall space and tack or tape it to the top of the wall.  Turn under the top edge of the fabric before taping or pinning as the cut edge may fray while working with it.  Have the helper tack up the fabric and guide them if it needs moved or adjusted.  The outlets will be cut out with the utility knife later.  Let the fabric overhang the baseboard, that will be trimmed later as well.
  4. Lift one panel up at a time, keeping the top tacked to the wall, and apply the starch with a roller.  Bring the fabric down over the wet wall immediately as the starch tends to dry quickly.  Smooth out the wrinkles, working your way down the wall panel.   Be sure to work into all corners.
  5. Use the roller to apply starch to the top of the fabric, allowing it to completely saturate the surface.
  6. After the fabric is totally dry remove the tacks or tape at the top and starch that area like the previous steps.
  7. When the wall is dry, use the straight edge and utility knife to trim away the excess fabric along the baseboards, at the top and around outlets.
  8. If the fabric needs to be removed from the wall just apply warm water to the wall.  A sponge works well for this.

 

Wall Panel Method

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Fabric for the walls - measure the wall space to be covered then determine the amount of fabric required for the wall space.  Keep in mind the repeat of the pattern, allowing for any waste that may occur when the design is lined up.  Purchase additional yardage  (recommending 3 yd) in case a panel needs to be replaced. 
  • Foamcore Board cut the width of the repeat in the fabric.  Purchase enough Foamcore panels to cover the wall completely.
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Masking tape
  • Tacky glue
  • Small nails to mount panels to the wall
  • Hammer
  • Another person to help

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cut the Foamcore boards to the width and length needed for the fabric to cover the board.
  2. Cut the fabric 2” wider in all directions so it can wrap around the board and be adhered to the back.
  3. Place the fabric face down on a work surface then the Foamcore panel on top. 
  4. Run a line of glue around the back edge of the panel.
  5. Wrap the fabric around to the back of the board and staple it in place.  Masking tape helps hold it in place while the glue dries.
  6. Cover all the boards and mount to the walls with the nails.
