Remove the old coating from the walls. To make the wallpaper easier, wet them with water and wait a bit. Inspect the surface for mounds and cracks. If there are mounds, then clean them with a spatula or a rough brush, and cover the slots with cement. Remove all nails and metal objects from the wall, otherwise they may rust and leave a mark on the wallpaper.
Using a roller, apply a primer to the walls andLet it dry. Buy a special primer for heavy wallpaper, for example acrylic. It is slightly more expensive than usual, but it will well level the walls, reliably protect them from moisture and will not allow flaky wallpaper. If such a primer could not be bought, cover the walls with wallpaper glue diluted with water.
Cut the wallpaper pieces of the correct size, leavingAllowance is about 10 cm. Fold them in one stack face up. Do not bend the sheets, since the bend marks will be very visible. Textile wallpaper is more convenient to cut with large scissors.
Proceed to pasting the walls. If you bought wallpaper on a paper base, then apply glue on both them and on the wall. When working with wallpaper on a non-woven base, only the wall is smeared. If the package with wallpaper does not have information about what kind of glue they need, then buy any glue for heavy wallpaper.
Wall a piece of wallpaper, pressing itWith a rubber roller from top to bottom. Do not make transverse movements, otherwise the glue protruding from the edges will stain the surface. Stick the next piece to the first one. Make sure that the picture on the sheets matches.
After the whole room is pasted, and the wallpaper dries, cut off all the extra edges. To do this, use a sharp construction knife.
