Repairing Wallpaper Blemishes


wallpaperLet’s be honest, wallpaper installations are not one of my favorite things. I’ve done it many times, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. Along the way I’ve learned a few things I will share.

There are times that no matter what, wallpaper seams just won’t behave. You are supposed to butt the seams together and roll them just once using only light pressure so you don’t squeeze all of the glue out of the seam. This works most of the time. For the times that it doesn’t work, use small amounts of wallpaper adhesive and work it into the seam areas. You can try a small syringe and place a few dabs where you need it, or you can use a cotton swab. If you use a cotton swab you may leave some fibers in the adhesive, but they won’t be noticeable when it dries.

If you are hanging the paper and you see small bubbles, don’t worry. They should disappear after a while. If they don’t go away, you can use a sharp razor blade and cut a small slit in the bubble to push out the air. You may want to use add some paper adhesive just to make sure it stays down.
