                        Martin may be an idea to practice . You could put lining paper on first to get into the hang of papering. At £62 a roll , and matching patterns could be expensive. Lots of how to videos on Youtube. :blue thumb:

                          @martin-f you really have done a grand job, well done.

                          Good luck with that wallpaper :dbgrtmb:, give yourself plenty of time & keep calm! I can't wall paper to save my life, I've not got enough patience :doh:
