Prepare the walls: Before sticking the wallpapers on the wall, it is important to prepare it. The first step is to prime the wall. Rub the wall space with sandpaper to smoothen the rough surface or any lumps that weight is there. These may spoil the wallpaper’s appearance. Once the smoothening is done, put a primer on the wall. Well, primed walls make both the stacking and removal of wallpapers easier. Once the priming is done, it is important for you to measure the walls. As stated before, vintage wallpapers may not be in the correct size and shape for your wall. Plus, you might want to mix and match with two or more kinds of vintage wallpapers. So, take the sizes so that you can cut the wallpapers accordingly to that magnitude.

Sticking the vintage wallpaper: The next step is to prepare the wallpaper adhesive. This can be bought in powder form, and then mixed to make the adhesive. Just follow the instructions on the box. Once the adhesive is ready, apply this paste on each of the squares allowed for the vintage wallpapers. Be careful about making it too thick or thin. Wait for five minutes or so and then start applying the vintage wallpapers. You can use a piece of cloth or a wallpaper brush to remove any air bubbles that might form. Make sure the work is smooth. Wipe the extra adhesive paste oozing out from the sides. Make sure it has been positioned correctly and is not inclined in any way. Now apply all the other wallpapers on the rest of the wall. Your vintage wall is ready.

Ways of using vintage wallpapers: Apart from covering your wall, vintage wallpapers can be utilized for many other decorative purposes. You can use it to cover cabinets, bookcases and drawers instead. You can frame it up and hang it on a wall. The wallpaper can be used to cover your trash bucket or even table lamps, thereby making them look impressive. You can line drawers with it. Need to wrap a gift with something unique? Use the vintage wallpapers to give the wrapping a different look. The bottom-line is that vintage wallpapers are very decorative and when used creatively can transform the look of the space they have been used on. So use your creativity and decorate your house using vintage wallpapers.
