authentic vintage wallpaper hanging

Vintage Wallpaper

Most vintage wallpaper is about 40 years old or older. Normally it comes with selvage that must be trimmed. The best way to hang this is gently. Vintage wallpaper hangs best over lining paper or bare sized plaster.

Made in USA

Most vintage wallpapers were made in the good old USA

Trimming vintage wallpaper

You must keep a fresh supply of alot of razor blades. This is a very delicate wallpaper, and not very washable as a rule. The trim and join lines are usually off a bit.

Trimming vintage wallpaper

After trimming, plan the room layout and cut your pieces.

Hanging Vintage Wallpaper

This must be a careful process as the paper is so old that it's brittle. I use either celouse or wheat paste. Cutting at the ceiling and floor can be challanging as it will rip easily, but the charm of the "look" is definitly worth it

Matching Vintage Wallpaper

This wallpaper must also be trimmed. I test to see the best place to trim it as the "trim and join" lines may be off a little.

Trimming Vintage Wallpaper

This is slow and exacting work. I want the seams to be as invisible as possible. The paper is very curly with memory of being in a roll for so many years

 

Vintage Wallpaper has it's own look

They just don't make it like that anymore. Proper wallpaper hanging methods give you a one of a kind look.

Kitchen

"The wallpaper we installed is all hand-screened dead stock, from the '40s. The colors are really pretty and you can see where the register is off in some spots. It didn't have paste on the back, but we found one old school guy in New Jersey who was able to paste it up, piece by piece. When the wallpaper guy put his sign up on the front lawn our neighbors came over and said, "I see you're getting rid of that hideous old wallpaper that came with your house. We had that problem, too." And we were like, "Um...no...actually we're putting it up!"
