Add Wallpaper Paste

Protect area with drop cloth. Place each strip of wallpaper on flat surface with back side facing up. Pour wallpaper paste into paint pan, slide roller pad onto roller handle, then dip roller into pan. Coat each strip of paper by rolling on a generous amount of paste. Book each strip of wallpaper by folding each end over and into the middle. Allow five to 10 minutes for paste to set.

Match Repeat Wall

Apply each pasted panel to the wall assuring pattern matches up. Once in place, remove any air bubbles or wrinkles with wallpaper smoother, then assure perfectly straight seams with a seam roller.

Cut Away Excess

Cut away excess wallpaper with utility knife by pressing down along corners, tops of baseboards, bottoms of crown molding and/or where wall and ceiling meet. Add hot water to bucket, dip large sponge in water and thoroughly wipe paste residue from surface of wallpaper.
