Hi! I am Jim Tiner, professional paper hanger. And we're talking about how to hang wallpaper today. We've already done our preparation, got our walls ready to receive the wallpaper, now we are going to cut three sheets. And we're only going to cut three sheets out of the first roll, because that's normal in the industry. You are responsible for everything else after that. So cut three sheets and we're going to check the wallpaper and go on from there.
If you remember, our wall was 92 inches long. So we'll measure out a good bit first, you don't want to have to go right to the top, leave an inch or two from the top and come down to 92 inches. That's the length right there, it's the length of our wall. Right where your finger is, point your straight edge, and you've got extra, you've got at least two-and-a-half inches extra.
Now you can either cut it or tear it. I am going to tear it. That's the length of your sheet. That's 92 inches with the little at the top, and little at the bottom. Now because of the match, we need to cut another one just like it.
We'll talk a little about matches in a little while, but right now I want to just cut the sheets. And again, we're only going to cut three sheets. So you can see here, you go into -- because of the type of match, you want to make the sheet exactly the same as the first sheet. Okay. Well we've lined it up, and as you can see at the top there is not enough paper.
What you need to do is keep moving your sheet until it matches again, and you'll have enough at the top and definitely enough at the bottom.
The next sheet will be the same way. As a matter of fact the next sheet will be the same as this second sheet. Keep moving it down, moving it down till the pattern matches and it's long enough, pattern matches and it's long enough. As you can see it's the same length as the second sheet. This is perfect. Cut it, we have our first three sheets, but I am not going to take all of that material to the wall with me. I am going to move it down, this was the extra, you don't need that extra. We're going to remove the excess paper.
Now you have three sheets exactly the size you need. Next, we will be installing these three sheets, and checking them. We'll be talking about how to install it.
