Please note: The wallpaper material isn’t designed for high moisture areas/splash zones and is not recommended for use in bathrooms.
Wallpaper may be applied to any dry, clean, smooth surface. Old wallpaper or other surface materials should be removed before application. Fill cracks with a spackling compound or plaster patching and sand to a smooth surface. Glossy or enamel finished walls should be lightly sanded, then washed with a common household detergent and allowed to dry completely. Any greasy surface should be cleaned with a strong ammonia solution, rinsed and allowed to dry completely.
If the wall to be covered has highly contrasting colors or white patches on a dark colored wall, prime over the contrasting areas until the entire area has a uniform color.
For new drywall, countersink all nail heads. Tape and repair all joints and holes using joint and holes using joint tape or a wall patch and joint compound and let dry. Sand the wall to a smooth finish. Prime all new drywall with a wallpaper primer/sealer and follow primer instructions for the dry time.
Extreme caution should be used when trimming or hanging wall covering around electrical outlets. Turn off all electrical current to the room at the fuse or circuit box before installation.
You will begin on the left side of your wall and continue until the last panel is hung on the right side of your wall. Using a plumb bob or level and a pencil, lightly draw a line from the far left corner of your wall at a distance 1" less than the width of the roll (23" in from the left corner of your wall). The right edge will align with this guideline. It is important to get this guideline completely vertical to ensure that your wall covering is correctly installed.
Fill your wallpaper water tray 2/3 full with lukewarm water and have your tools laid out and ready to use.
Loosely roll your first panel, Panel 1, printed side in and immerse in the wallpaper water tray. Holding onto the top of the panel, slowly unroll it so the entire pasted surface is moistened, which will activate the paste on the back of your wallpaper. Do not soak the panel for more than 10 seconds. Let excess water drip off and gently place the moistened panel directly on the wall and align it with the vertical guideline you drew earlier. If you need to fold the panel over for handling, be sure to fold it paste side to paste side.
Starting from the top center, work down and outwards to smooth the panel in place with a slightly damp sponge or wallpaper smoothing brush, working any air pockets toward the edges. Small air bubbles will go away after the panel dries. Do not use a metal or plastic blade as it may tear through the material or damage the printed surface. Be sure to rinse the sponge frequently to maintain a clean surface, and remove any excess paste from the printed wallpaper before it dries. Recheck that the edge of your panel is still aligned with your vertical guideline.
Continue this method with the remaining panels in numerical order. Place the left edge of the next panel immediately next to the right edge of the panel you just hung, making sure the pattern is aligned down the length of the two panels. Once the panel is smoothed into place and all air bubbles are removed, use your sponge or a seam roller to ensure that the edges are firmly pressed into place.
Once all the panels are in place, use a new, sharp razor blade knife and a metal straight edge to trim any excess material. Wipe any remaining paste away with the sponge and make sure that no bubbles are remaining in the panels.
The manufacturer warrants this product to be free of defects in material and workmanship for a period of 90 days from date of purchase, and will replace any material found to be defective. The manufacturer is not responsible for labor charges, improper installation, or problems arising from the defects in the construction, surface, or preparation of the wall.
Once installed, your wall covering may be cleaned using a soft, damp sponge. Do not use abrasive cleaners containing chlorine bleach, solvents, or ammonia as they may damage the printed surface.
When your wallpaper is installed as directed, this product can easily be removed from your wall for redecorating. To remove each panel, simply lift the top corners of the panel and pull down on both sides until you have 4-5" off the wall. Next, grab the panel firmly in both hands and pull straight down to remove the entire panel. After removing the panel, use a soft sponge and clean warm water to remove any paste from the wall.
