Stripping off that old wallpaper Or, "Why did I ever put that up?" Most homes built in the 80s and 90s have wallpaper in them somewhere. I know, because I installed a lot of it in Northwest Arkansas during those years. But, like the hairdos of the 60s, we are ready to put that behind us. So, how do you remove wallpaper? To start with, be assured that what went up can come down. Some of it is just a little more difficult. Do yourself a favor and go to Lowes or The Home Depot and buy a wallpaper steamer.It will cost you about $50.00 to $75.00. This is the secret sauce, the Genie in the Bottle, the magic wand. With this tool, most wallpaper will submit and turn loose the death grip it has on the walls.
Use a wallpaper stripper solution in the sprayer as mentioned above. NOT VINEGAR, NOT SOAP! You can buy wallpaper stripper in a concentrate. It was created for just such an occasion. It will work better than anything else you might be tempted to use. Sometimes, though rarely,wallpaper just will not strip off. In such an instance, you will have to skim over the top of the wallpaper, particularly, at the seams with sheet rock compound to make it smooth. This is because if you just paint over the wallpaper, you will see the seams. They will just be a different color. After you have stripped the wallpaper or skimmed over it, you will need to texture the walls. This will produce a look that we all desire on our walls. All walls are textured with one type of finish or another. Once this is done, a good coat of primer and 2 coats of paint and you are finished. It is hard work, but the result is a room or home with "up to date" wall finishes.
Congratulation, You just hung your first piece of wallpaper. Continue with the next piece and align it up to the one on the wall, making sure that the pattern matches. Smooth, trim, wash and towel dry. Please note that small bubbles under the wallpaper are common and will disappear when wallpaper is completely dry ( about 2 days). When working around windows and doors, take care not to tear the wallpaper at the corners. I use my scissors to make a relief cut, coming towards the corner of the door or window with my scissors and stopping right on or a little short of the corner. This will allow you to work the sheet around the corner without tearing it. Remember to keep your work table clean of glue. Have several sponges handy to wash the table, your tools, hands and the finished wallpaper. Any glue left on the wallpaper could damage the finished surface over time (several months might go by and then the print starts to flake off the front) Also make sure to clean the ceiling, crown, baseboards, cabinets with clean water and towel dry.
When picking out the wallpaper, there are several things to remember. Shinny finishes on wallpaper will tend to highlight any texture or imperfections on the walls that are to be covered. If you are dealing with a textured wall, try and pick a wallpaper that will disguise (hide) the texture. The other option would be to have a sheet rock contractor come in a smooth out the texture. Some textures are less noticeable than others. Be aware that dark colored wallpapers will tend to show their seems slightly more that light colors. Large repeats in the pattern match will cause more waste and more wallpaper. Some wallpapers are pre-pasted and some are not. Wallpapers are sold in double rolls with widths ranging from 20 1/2"...27" and 36."
Desktop wallpapers are the first thing a user sees when they sit down at the computer for work or play. They bring color to a black and white world especially for the office worker who has to stare at words or crunch numbers all day. There are numerous usages for wallpaper, mostly as decoration. Space wallpapers provide some of the most interesting designs someone can find for their desktop. The universe is full of different colored stars and planets captured on clear and dark nights with only the stars illuminating the sky. Most people have never even seen the sky without some form of artificial light marring the view, what better way to bring back some of the wonder the ancients felt than with a nice space wallpaper. The entire idea of space itself is immense and inspiring. All the time people talk about reaching for the stars, with space wallpaper the user needs only reach a few inches in front of them to touch the cosmos. The solar system is a timeless wonder that is both contemporary and classic. Space wallpaper is nothing like the old style Windows screen savers shooting through small dots on the screen. Instead of being stylized, many of the stars and comets depicted are what someone could see with the naked eye without all the light pollution.
Paper backed or solid sheet vinyl is another very durable type of wallpaper. It is almost like vinyl coated wallpaper, except that it has a layer of pulp or paper on the back. It is still very moisture-resistant and easy to clean, so it works well in any room. Fabric backed vinyl can be a little more tricky. It is usually more durable than coated fabric, but not necessarily as durable as paper backed or solid sheet, or vinyl coated wallpaper. It consists of fabric with vinyl, but the fabric layer is not always coated. So be careful to fully inspect this type of wallpaper before purchasing it for your decorating job.
