DIY Shout Out!

May 18, 2010 03:32 by ehouston

I would like to send a SHOUT OUT to the well trained, detail oriented people that put up the wallpaper in my new old house!!  Using sizing or primer on the drywall before adding thick pasted vinyl paper to the wall was apparently just one step to many.  I understand your need for immediate gratification and am so excited to see that you went right over the wallpaper border! 


(Yes, what you think you see is correct.  The drywall below the chair rail is missing the top layer of paper.  Insert scream here.)

I am also anxiously awaiting the opportunity to spend the next week repairing the dramatically damaged wall before I get to add my final coat of paint.  YEAH!! 

Off to Home Depot....I believe one of these is in my near future.
