More Pictures of This Week’s ” Menagerie ” Wallpaper Install in Nursery

August 11, 2022
Closet corner before.
Closet corner after.
Window corner. Continuing the chair rail inside the window return would have made it difficult for the blinds to fit properly. So the carpenter ( Arcadio Morgado , who is unparalleled in craftsmanship and professionalism – email me if you want his contact info ) stopped the molding at the window edge, but painted that little 1/4″ lip.
I love the way the narrow strip of wallpaper looks falling down along the green wainscoting .
View from door of crib wall .
Close up. My clients love these peacocks !
Called Menagerie by Rifle Paper , which is made by York , one of my favorite brands .
Please see previous post for more information about this product and installation .

Avoid Damaging the New Wallpaper – Have All Work Done BEFORE the Paper Goes Up

October 8, 2020


See those dark smudges and scrapes on the wall, on both sides of the corner? The homeowner had crown molding installed, and this resulted in damage to the walls.

Either scraping while manipulating the wood into place, or the carpenter letting his sweaty hands touch the walls, or maybe leaning against the wall with his keychain rubbing on it.

So, best to have work like this done before the new wallpaper goes up.
