    Is that all you have done all day? besides, the pattern doesn't match & it is upside down :hysterical: :hysterical: :jester:

    Every one is doing feature walls these days, I suppose they can't afford the wallpaper for the other three - with all these cut backs & all.

    Ohh, by the way Brian NICE job :thumbsup: :thumbup: I like the Laura Ashley paper - I am not so sure of the current designs, but years ago I lapped it up, hung miles of it.

    That's nice paper, Brian.  :thumbsup:
    That's where a laser line would come in handy at that height for the first plumb. Do you use one?

    I hoped you'd put this job on. Cheers!

    no i didn't take it the wrong way Aggie,i think a lot of us on here no when the michael is being extracted.
    £5500 you could buy Tim a new van instead of paying your tax bill. :hysterical:

    What were the walls like on that barn, did they need the wallpaper as a coverup ? i do like though, fairplay, with the height and all and dropping rolls, good show  :thumbsup:

    Looks nice and fresh, Brian  :thumbsup:

    Was it just the sticking you had or did you do the lid and any w/w too?
    No lining needed either  :no:

    That looks really good Brian. Those jobs are awkward, with not just teh height, but the sloping ceilings as well. The little brick corbeled pad stones for the purlins look like little bee hives! You will be able to get teh bill in now!

    No worries, Brian.
    We all know what we enjoy working with and as long as the result is the same  :yes:

    Did you sign the wall before before sticking? - Proudly decorated by www.briandaviespainteranddecorator.co.uk/ 2011
