    Does anyone has a technique that doesn't make you feel like your arms are going to fall off?! I've been scraping all week, and boy am I sore! We normally mix up a bucket of water and stripper, then slosh it on with a rag, scrape, slosh, scrape, slosh. It makes a wicked awful mess, the bits...

    As much as everyone seems to hate it, I'm thinking about putting up wallpaper in a few places. Sometimes in an older home, walls just aren't perfect anymore and wallpaper hides a lot of defects. I want to check out some of the new paintable wallpapers - they are basically just a textured...
  4. Freebies
    Choose a pattern from any wallpaper book. The "free sample" link is directly beneath the box with the pricing and billing information. I am not sure how big the sample is from American Blinds for this promotion, but they are usually letter sized (roughly 8.5 x 11 inches). I will use these for...

    How many of you have borders on your walls? I, by NO means, am an interior designer, but I'm wondering: are these still "in"? I just bought some because I painted my dining room bright red. The border has pictures of colonial homes and trees--think "folk art". KWIM? All the colors tie in...

    We are having serious issues with about 1/4 of one wall in our dining room. Is it really "out" to put wallpaper on one wall and paint the other three? It isn't my first choice, but it is an option we are considering to deal with the mess on the one wall. (I can't show you any pictures as my...

    I love wallpaper but the price is just getting to be too much. I would have Victorian wallpaper in every room of my home if the cost wasn't so high.

    I love wallpaper. I just wish it wasn't quite so expensive. I always wait until they have B1G1F and then pick up enough for a room.

    I found this border today for my new laundry room and I really love it.  The walls in that room- as in the rest of the house-- will be painted cream when we move in. The washer and dryer will also be cream colored.  In a small laundry room (long and narrow, just big enough to contain the...

    <H1>Has anyone bought discontinued wallpaper online?   I found a border I wanted to use in DD's room several months ago (online), but now that I'm ready to buy it, it's been discontinued!   :bang:   I have picked out another one that will work, but, I really like the first one better.</H1>...

    Is there a limit to the amount of wallpapaer you can have on your computer? I am trying to install new wallpaper as I get bored looking at the same picture all the time. I can install them to C:/windows where they are supposed to go, put when I go to the display area where themes and wallpapers...

    The new issue of Countryside magazine has an article telling how to make an inexpensive decorator floor with wallpaper. I thought this was so clever. They say to remove all old flooring, then lay ¼" plywood down and fill the seams with lap and leveling compound. Let dry and sand. Then prime the...

    I found 2 bags of wall paper scraps in the storage closet from the people before us. None of them are big enough to do much with so I have a bunch of pen pals and decided to use the scraps to make my envelopes for my letters. I tried it and they actually turned out pretty nice. I dont follow any...

    Here is a cheaper alternative to remove wall paper. Use fabric softener. Use one part fabric softener to two parts water. Apply to wall, let set 15 minutes, and then peel off. :paw:
