Bedroom wallpaper


Time to prep the upstairs bedroom wallpaper.  I lucked out with a great find at a local miniatures show - a vintage paper from Mini Graphics called Gallery Flower.  Since it came rolled, I pressed it flat on the table for a couple weeks before using.  I had traced the wall outlines before assembly, so these helped me make paper templates to check the fit before cutting the final paper.

There were only two sheets of the paper in the roll, so I had to be careful with my cuts.  I was able to get the three pieces needed to cover the bedroom from one sheet, leaving a couple of small scraps and one full sheet in case of disaster during installation.  The light paper color will help keep the room from becoming a dungeon once the roof is on.

The upper floor will have stained baseboards, so I propped them in place to check the color and fit.  They are lighter than the flooring but don't clash since the paper is light.

Next up, figuring out the lighting before installing the paper.
