Finding a Starting Pattern

  • Avoid wallpapering with either of the two strips that lie on either side of the final seam. You want these two drops to be the last ones you do because both drops may have to be cut simultaneously which requires that they both be wet enough to peel back and reposition.
  • Don't rely on a corner of the wall or the edge of a door and window trim to guide the first piece. Use a plumb and chalk line to create a straight, vertical guideline.
  • If an out of ceiling calls for it, you can establish an out of plumb vertical guideline by taking the following steps.
  • Measure about four feet down form the ceiling at each corner and snap a chalk line between the two points.
  • Use a framing square to drawn a line perpendicular to the chalk line.
  • Extend the out of plumb line by using a pencil and straight edge until the line runs from floor to ceiling.
