A Little Water Color Does the Trick!

A pretty common problem with wallpaper is shrinking at the seams and showing a teeeny bit of white wall between the strips.  It happens most often with thin, pre-pasted papers.  On a light paper, no biggie.  But with a dark paper, even a hair’s breadth bit of white showing at the seams is undesirable.

But it’s an easy fix!… I hit Texas Art Supply near my house (or even Michael’s of Hobby Lobby) and pick up a bottle of water-based craft paint in the appropriate color(s).  Then it’s a simple matter of getting the paint inside the seam, to color both the wall and the edges of the paper, then wiping any residue off the surface.

It’s fast, quick, cheap, and unbelieveably effective.
