We spent quite a while choosing the right wallpaper for inside Peggy, we wanted it to complement the blue spotty curtain material and the grey sofa. We also wanted to add a pattern but not too much as it is quite a small space after all. We got a few samples and decided on Kelda by Scion in pewter from John Lewis.
We measured everything out and only needed one roll, which was lucky as this is rather expensive wallpaper for a little old caravan! After measuring and remeasuring each small cupboard door, we cut the paper using a fresh craft knife and trusty metal ruler.
Again we used the extra strong and gloppy wallpaper paste and a firm wallpaper brush. We way over applied the paste to the first cupboard - always have kitchen roll handy to wipe away the excess. So we were off..... we just kept going around the caravan, checking each piece before sticking it down. Again a few pieces needed trimming with the craft knife - do this once the paper has dried though to avoid it ripping.
The fiddly bit was the inside of Peggy's front door, we only wanted to paper the lower half as the top is going to be black board painted. I was a little overzealous with the knife and we had a chunk missing by the latch, but I'm pretty proud of the patch up I did!
We are so pleased with the outcome and think she looks great. Next up, hanging her curtains!
