James M. Tiner: Hi! I'm Jim Tiner, Professional Paper Hanger, and we're talking about how to hang wallpaper today.
We've done the room, we've hung our sheets, and now we're coming to the end. Usually at the end is probably the most inconspicuous point in room, that's usually right over the door, that you walked into the room and most likely as you can see, the paper is somewhat smaller than the width of the paper that we're going to install. So now we need to make it look like something natural.
I also want to talk about level line. Remember we talked about the level line, trying to keep the pattern as level as possible. That will keep this point inconspicuous as possible as well. So, let's see what happens. We'll install this ending sheet up against where we left off over the door. Hold this over, don't get any glue on your ceiling. As you can see, there's no pattern match there. However, maybe by cutting around some patterns, I can make it look like it belongs here. I don't want to draw any attention to this.
So first of all, tuck it in, make sure it's in position. Then, just take a quick look at what you have here. You maybe able to do something, you may not be able to do something. But it looks like -- well, see, maybe we can turn it over this way. You can go back and forth, nothing says you can't move and check out the other way. Pull it back, let it come back over and gee! I don't know. We maybe able to get away with cutting around and cutting out like this, but we might have to do some scouting. So we're on a position ready to go. This is called double-cutting. We're going to cutting through both sheets of paper.
I'm going to be standing up here to cut this pattern out, come down here as close as I can to this pattern, and then sort of jump over here, so I'm away from the pattern that's underneath, while keeping everything intact, everything that I can I want to keep intact. So, let's get a fresh blade and get started. Okay, we'll start here. I'm cutting through both pieces, taking my time. You take your time, because, as soon as I get around, I know that there is a pattern under there. So I want to get away from that pattern, come around. It looks like we might have -- okay. Since we cut through both pieces, you want to take out the excess off the bottom and then put it altogether.
Now, it's not perfect, but it doesn't draw too much attention, because of cut patterns. You want to keep pattern intact if you possibly can. When I finish, let's finish it up like we always do. We'll cut the top, the bottom, and wash it. In the bottom, put it all back together, wash, and voila! This is what we call a kill point or an ending point.
What you want to do is make it as inconspicuous as possible. I think, we've done that. I know that you can do it. You'll probably do it the same way or a different way, depending on the pattern. If it's a straight pattern, of course, we'll keep straight lines. But since this has different patterns going through it, we kept those patterns intact, and we didn't draw attention to the wallpaper itself or the ending point.
