It's that time of year. Gardening and home improvement. Feel free to post before and after pics of your projects. If you have tips to make things easier, please post.
My current project is to wallpaper and paint the kitchen. My walls have a vinyl covering that rejects paint but will take wallpaper. Soooo, am covering with a textured white paintable wallpaper.
Here's the rub, this is a very flimsy when wet wallpaper. I have wallpapered before with more robust coverings. This stuff becomes very much like wet newspaper. I use a metal straight edge to press the wet paper into the "trim line".
So while trying to trim the excess to fit instead of cutting, it bunches up and tears even when using the razor knife against the metal staight edge that is pinning the paper down.
