Piecing In a 1/4″ Strip of Wallpaper

Sometimes, you do what you have to do. This last strip of wallpaper fell near a corner, but it was just 1/4′ shy of that corner. And, beings as how it was a rigid geometric pattern on a thick unyielding substrate, any attempts to “fudge” the pattern, “grow” it, “shrink” it, overlap and appliqué it, or pull any other paperhanger’s trick to move the pattern over 1/4″ – would not work.

In the end, I had to cut and fit in a 1/4″ strip (with a little more added on, to permit a tad to wrap around the corner, which is standard paperhanger’s protocol).

This geometric pattern is called la Florentina, and is by GP & J Baker, a British company. Designers credits include David Hicks and his daughter Ashley Hicks.
