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
Position the paper against your wall, over your window and press gently to the pasted surface, continuing for the full length of the paper but not pressing the wallpaper to the windows edge.
Use a pencil to carefully mark out the edges of the window onto the wallpaper.
Carefully use the scissor to cut the paper horizontally to the pencil mark.
Gently work the paper around the window sill, smoothing the edges as you go for the perfect fit.
Time for the chop
Use your Taping Knife as a guide, cut the paper as close to the edge of the window frame as possible with a Stanley knife. Peel away any excess paper.
Now you’ve got the hang of it! Repeat each step until you have wallpapered around the rest of the window.
Once you’ve done this we recommend papering straight over the box (or plates if they’re too tricky to remove), cutting a small cross in the paper and trimming the paper back to approximately the size of the socket or switch. Be careful not to cut too much paper away.
Finally, flatten the paper back against the wall and using a Stanley knife cut neatly around the fixing’s perimeter
