Now that I’m finished being sidetracked by my library mini-makeover, I am back to finishing up the details on the work area in my office.

I thought when I put up the fabric roll storage rack originally that I would wallpaper behind it to match the inside of the panel mouldings in the rest of the room.

Then I thought that there wouldn’t be enough of the wall showing to be worth the effort, so I didn’t do it.  After I lived with it for a while, I realized that it was bothering me.  You could see the wall and the brackets in the space behind the top roll, and it looked unfinished to me.

I know some people may think that it seems like a lot of work for that little bit of space…but since I’m in this room all the time, I notice it and it bothers me every time I look at it.

So I went back and wallpapered it.  I am so glad I did!  And to be honest, it really wasn’t all that time consuming or difficult.

  1. Whenever I butt the pieces of wallpaper together, the next day there is a space between the seams. I’m assuming the papers shrinks when it dries.

      Hi Loretta…It can separate a little when it dries. Using the wallpaper roller to go over the seams right after you hang the paper can help with that. If I’m putting up a wallpaper that’s very different from the paint color, I also paint the wall a similar color to the wallpaper background before I start…that way you don’t notice any separations as much. Hope this helps!
