The Paste-A-Dot Trick

Digital ImageDigital ImageDigital ImageDigital ImageCeilings and walls are not always level and plumb. When you have a geometric design like this trellis, any deviation will show. See how the dot on the right is being cut off, as the ceiling line moves downward?

Sometimes, a large part of wallpapering is fooling the eye. My trick today is cutting dots out of scrap wallpaper, and pasting them at the top of the wall, covering up the ones that were being cut in half. The eye would catch if a dot were cut in half, but it would not likely notice that the lattice design is a little shorter than the one on the left.

Yes, pasting on an appliqué adds a little thickness, but up at the top of a 9′ high ceiling, it’s not visible.

I had to do the same thing along the top of the vanity, because the right side was 1/2″ higher than the left side.

This fun pattern is by Thibaut Designs, one of my favorite brands to work with.
