That’s a lot of lining paper….

Seven rolls of lining paper later and we finally have one final thin strip to paste up in the Poppy room 🎉.
This has been really tough going because of the terrible walls underneath but for the first time in probably 100 years we are down to the walls lime surface rather than simply adding another layer to it – I hope that doesn’t prove to be a mistake and the wood-chip paper was holding up the plaster! 🤪
Now we let it all dry, add some caulk to hide the joins and tomorrow we can put up the wallpaper.
The final job for New Year’s Eve is to put a couple of coats of paint on the ceiling because we do NOT want the red paint to drip onto the wallpaper.
