Prepare the Wall
Before you begin hanging the wallpaper, you need to prepare the wall. Start by removing any existing wallpaper and cleaning the wall. Make sure to fill any holes or cracks with spackle and sand them down. Once the wall is clean and smooth, you can begin hanging the wallpaper.
Measure and Cut the Wallpaper

Apply the Wallpaper Paste
Once the wallpaper is cut to size, you can begin applying the wallpaper paste. Use a wallpaper brush to apply the paste to the back of the wallpaper. Make sure to cover the entire back of the wallpaper.
Hang the Wallpaper
Once the wallpaper paste is applied, you can begin hanging the wallpaper. Start at the top of the wall and work your way down. Use a damp cloth to smooth out any bubbles or wrinkles. Once the wallpaper is hung, you can trim any excess with a sharp knife.
