Installing Wallpaper On A Ceiling


Here is an extremely boring video of myself and Nigel S. Shorts installing some high-end wallcovering on a dining room ceiling.

Re: Installing Wallpaper On A Ceiling


Make sure you tape all the switches off before starting. - I speak from experience.

My wife thought she had to do a wall with ugly paper in a long narrow converted glazed porch. While putting up a panel, I bumped a switch and turned on the ceiling fan wihout noticing. - The ceiling fan was low and the room was narrow - you guess the rest!! I was very mad but it was so silly looking at the thing going around and around. I had to laugh. Now a few years later, it has become more rediculous and I am not mad any more.

I had enough paper, so I finished putting the ugly stuff (black with big flowers) up. I got some revenge when we could not sell the house for months, so I painted directly over the paper with beige and we sold the house a week later.
