Default Wallpaper border installed in the powder room...

My lovely wife had me repaint 3 rooms, install some wood trim, stain it to match the wood already installed, etc etc etc

She said she wanted wallpaper borders.

I don't do wallpaper

So she did it

One room done.

2 more to go.

The brand is Bradbury & Bradbury, never heard of it, but they make Victorian and Arts & Crafts style papers. Apparently its hand screened. I'm not sure what that means but it sounds like it cost me extra? Had to have the local paint/wallpaper store order special clay based paste to put it up.

I have to admit, I was very skeptical but I think it looks great. She ordered a few pictures from them too.

Wallpaper is a sore subject in my house but what you have done is in keeping with the look and works ok,it kinda has a medieval/old English pub look.

Good job.

While I sit in the living room with a mug of hot coffee, my dog Misha, and the local Chicago news on the TV, I can hear the lovely Mrs_Bob toiling away and installing more wallpaper border up in our kitchen/dinette.

If I survive the day, I'll post photos later

AND NOW THE KITCHEN!

The first, and hardest, bit of wall in the kitchen/dinette area with the border now up. This had to wrap around 3 corners and she wanted it all to be 1 piece.
