Fuzzy Stuff vs. Toothbrush

See the fuzzy stuff on the edge of this paper?  This roll by Designer Wallpapers has shards of paper left by the factory’s trimming process.  If left in place, they could cause gaps or rough looking seams.

A toothbrush has turned out to be a handy tool for scrubbing off these minute particles of paper.

A Tight Squeeze

Look at how close this pedestal sink is to the wall on the right. There is literally only about 1/2″ of space – and I need to get wallpaper on that wall, as well as down that little narrow gap on the sink wall!

As I like to say, “If you can’t get your hand in there, then find a tool that will do the job for you.” Bottom line, I did get the two spaces covered with wallpaper.

But … next time, I just might have the homeowners remove the sink. This would make the whole job easier and faster, and it would result in a neater look. And a lot less cussing. 🙂
