Tricky Intricate Cuts on a Bull-Nosed Arch

These bull-nosed edges are quite popular in new homes these days. When the wallpaper is to end on an edge like this, they are hard enough to trim on, because you can’t tell exactly WHERE the edge is, because the strip of paper is flopping over the wall. The difficulty of this job was compounded by the additional angles in the arch.

But I have a little gadget that helps get good straight cuts on these bull nosed edges. I spent at least three hours on just this wall, but, as you can see, it turned out great.

This wallpaper is by Designer Wallpapers, and has a little glitter, plus a bit of a raised texture that feels something like velvet. I hung it in a dinging room in a new home in Bellaire. This paper was bought at a discounted price from Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby.
