Like any wallpapering project, you're most likely to be successful if the surfaces are clean and smooth. If you're installing a wallpaper border over an existing paper, you'll get the best results using a vinyl-to-vinyl adhesive.
A beginner and a helper can hang a border around an average room in an hour and a half.
- Wallpaper primer†
†Available at retail stores.
Using the width of your border as a guide, prime the wall or surface area where you plan to install your border. Plan your starting point so that if there is a mismatched seam, it'll fall in an inconspicuous place. If you're going to be hanging a border as a chair rail, use a level, and draw a light pencil line around the room at the right height.
You'll begin hanging your first strip at a corner, overlapping the border onto the adjacent wall about 1/4 inch. Have a helper hold the border while you hang it and smooth it with the smoothing brush.
Sometimes, you can't help it, and your seams fall in the middle of walls. If that happens, overlap the border strips so that the patterns match, then cut through both layers with a utility knife. Remove the cut ends, then press the border flat with the smoothing brush.
To make your border flush with the surrounding wallpaper, first overlap the border onto the wallpaper. Use a straightedge and razor knife to cut through the underlying wallpaper along the border's edge.
Pull up the border, and remove the cut wallpaper. Press the border flat with your hand, and finish it with a smoothing brush.
