I Hope They Didn’t PAY Someone To Do This!

I don’t know if a paid “tradesman” or the home handyman did this work, but, gee, I hate that a homeowner is left with work that looks like this. The second photo is a close-up of a patch over a hole in the wall – plastic (improper material) stapled (improper fastener) to the wall, and never taped-and-floated. Third photo shows a paper towel (?!) stuck into a hole in the baseboard (??!!) The last photo is someone’s idea of touching up paint on the woodwork.

When I’m wallpapering in a home that has work that looks like this, it’s hard to get my job to look as good as it should, because the infrastructure is so poor. And this effects the adhesion and long-livability of the new wallpaper.
