Trimming Grasscloth at the Ceiling

Have you ever wondered how wallpaper gets trimmed?

Here I am, using my trim guild to hold a strip of grasscloth tight against the joint between the wall and ceiling, and using a razor knife to trim off the excess.

CRISIS! Broken Tool!

Digital ImageDigital ImageI was pressing hard, trimming a through a thick woven grasscloth, and my single edge razor knife broke into pieces!

These knives can be hard to find, and the last time I needed one, Home Depot didn’t have any. I had to get my local mom-&-pop hardware store (Southland Hardware – “The Store That Has ALMOST Everything” – and it does, too!) to special order some. I bought a bunch, so luckily, when this one broke today, I could run out to the truck and dig around and find a new one!

I wouldn’t want to try to try wallpaper without the tool that my hands are used to using!
