This review reflects user error, based on my not reading that this wallpaper should only be applied to SMOOTH walls. I have lightly textured (sand) walls. I thought that it would still work..... Nope.
Day one it went up beautifully. But at 1 am we awoke to wallpaper crashing to the floor. I was so upset. Next day I reapplied it all and applied a lot of pressure smoothing it against the wall. Couple hours later it came down again. Knowing I had some $$ invested in it, I searched for remedies on line. Someone posted using small amounts of rubber cement. So I did that across the entire top and down the sides and bottom- in dime sized amounts. So how is it now?? Well, it's only staying attached to the wall where the rubber cement is- and nowhere else. It's pretty much a disaster and will be taken down. Learn from my mistake!
I am redoing my bathroom with this wall paper. I'm doing it mostly by myself and have had very few problems.
The only issue I've run up against is matching the pattern. At first, I though as long as I lined up the pieces of wood, they would all be the same size and it would be fine. Unfortunately, I had to pull down the first pieces I put up and start over. There is a definite pattern that has to be matched up. Also, if you pull the paper off, be careful not to stretch it in the process.
Once I got that down, it worked like a charm and my bathroom looks fantastic!!!
Once again WallPops has made my life easier and more stylish.
This wallpaper looks so great in our garage! Bought it to cover newly painted garage where the tools hang on the wall. Looks fantastic!
