Door Hidden by Wallpaper

July 4, 2021
You can just barely see the outline where the door is.

Here is a swinging door that leads from the dining room to the kitchen. The homeowners wanted it to “disappear,” and covering it with wallpaper was the perfect way to have it blend in with the other walls.

I won’t get into logistics, but the four strips of wallpaper needed to cover this space were complicated and tricky. I’d say I spent three hours on just this corner of the room.

Even though this was a non-woven “paste-the-wall” material, it worked much better to paste the paper, because then it became more pliable and cooperative.

The homeowners have sworn that they will place a small clear acrylic push-plate to keep people’s hands off the paper as they pass through.

The pattern is called “Pine” and the manufacturer is Sanderson. The home is in the Tanglewood / Galleria area of Houston.

Foresty Pattern in Dining Room

Textured wall has been smoothed and primed – ready for wallpaper.
I love the way this coordinates with the green moldings.
The pattern is called “Pine.”
Manufacturer is Sandberg, a Scandinavian company. I love that their word for “pattern” translates to “monster.”

Can’t wait to do the remaining three walls tomorrow.

This is a non-woven (synthetic) material, and I hung this first wall with the paste-the-wall method. Due to the complexity and characteristics of the remaining walls, I may opt to paste the paper.

The homeowners had never used wallpaper before, so they were a little uncertain going in. Once they saw this first finished wall, they are thrilled!

The home is in the Tanglewood / Galleria area of Houston.
