Wallpapering toolkit. You will need:
- Flat surface (a wallpaper table is ideal, but if not a large kitchen counter or dining room table will work just fine)
- Wallpaper brush
- Wallpaper paste
- Taping knife
- Spirit level
- Pencil and Stanley knife
- Tape measure
Paper over the top of the socket
Position the paper against your wall and press gently to the pasted surface, continuing for the full length of the paper but not pressing down over the socket.
Use a pencil to carefully mark out the four corners of the socket on to the wallpaper.
Commit to snip
In the middle of the pencil marks cut a slit in the paper and from this centre slit, cut to each corner of the socket to create four triangles. Gently peel back these triangles and cut them off to reveal the socket.
Slowly does it
WE RECOMMEND TURNING OFF THE ELECTRICITY FOR THIS STEP
Loosen the socket and push any excess paper behind the fitting to create the perfect finish! Re-tighten the socket screws once done.
A quick tidy up
Use a slightly dampened sponge to clean off any paste on the socket.
