Oswald - Buffalo Check
From someone who had only wallpapered using the old "apply the messy paste" method, I was surprised by how easy the peel and stick method was. I also appreciated the heaviness of the paper which allowed me to paper over my lightly textured wall without any preparation. My only suggestion is with the directions sent by Wall Blush. My friend (who was experienced) and I followed the instructions by beginning with the top left corner of the wall and making sure all were level. However because my ceiling was not square, by the time we did the second drop and certainly the third, we were not able to go all the way to the ceiling and still match the pattern. By the third drop, we had to move the paper up and trim and then use the part that was cut off and patch at the bottom. Thankfully, due to the quality of the paper and where it was situated on the wall, you cannot tell. If I use the paper again, instead of following the directions, I will start the paper further to the left and above the top of the wall and use a plumb line. Trim the excess. This will give me enough paper to allow me to match up the pattern while still being able to not have a problem at the top on the subsequent drops. I would hope that Wall Blush would consider this when cutting the rolls and allow a little excess.
Thanks so much Cynthia for the feedback, we wanted to let you know your instinct to start an inch or 2 up on the ceiling is correct. We do have this in our current directions to start 1.5 inches above the wall to compensate for unlevel ceilings. We also give an additional 3 inches in height to each panel to give our customers confidence that their panels will still be long enough to reach the baseboard.
