Grasscloth on a Bull-Nosed Arch

Digital Image

Digital ImageThese bull-nosed edges and arches are popping up in many new homes these days. They are a LOT harder to cut wallpaper around, as compared to a squared corner or edge. Compound that with textured paper (see 2nd photo), and it is a real bugger bear.

It took me a day and a half to hang the grasscloth in this dining room, and several of those hours were devoted to covering and trimming the paper around two of these bull-nosed arches.

It’s the first time I’ve worked with such a thick and nubby material on these arches, and I have to say that I’m pleased with how well they turned out.

This warm hot chocolate-colored grasscloth is by Phillip Jeffries and is called Juicy Jute. It was bought for less than retail from Dorota at Southwestern Paint in Houston. CALL BEFORE HEADING OVER TO SEE HER (713) 520-6262.
