If you didn’t hear about our first round of wallpaper samples, check out episode 56.
We tried few more samples for round 2. This is the same floral Spoonflower paper we tried in round 1 with a charcoal background instead of blue. It still didn’t have enough contrast for the dark hallway.
We wanted to work with Tempaper, but this pattern was a little too on-the-nose midcentury for our taste.
We ended up going with Tempaper’s Travertine. It packed a lot of punch while seeming like the easiest of a difficult set of options.
Tempaper provides a calculator on their site to help you figure out how many rolls to order.
The squeegee was a recommended add-on with our order, and we’re glad we bought it.
After we cut a few pieces we knew we’d need, we numbered them so we could remember which order they were supposed to be hung in.
It took us an hour to hang this first piece.
Hanging each piece required trimming along the ceiling and the bottom trim.
We thought that hanging the paper around our fire alarm was going to be the hardest part. Luckily, it only ended up being the third or fourth hardest part.
We started with a solid system for storing offcuts, and then it got a bit out of hand.
Here’s the final product.
