So with all of the planning in place to get Peggy ready for the wedding, we need to start actually doing it!
This weekend we cleared her out, took away all the cushions and started to take off the old bright wallpaper. In doing so we also took off some of the original wallpaper! Opps! It was clear that she's had a little damp at some point, which the previous owners had told us about and we'd checked it everytime we went to see Peggy and so far so good, no sigh of reoccurring damp. It did mean that we needed to do some repair work to give her a nice smooth wall surface though.
So who can wallpaper the walls of a caravan? We can, apparently! We used super thick lining paper with extra strong and think wallpaper paste (we added less water than normal). We just went for it! Cutting out templates from spare paper and using a little trial and error. Around the Windows was difficult as it curved, but we also knew most of it would be covered by the curtains (argh, really need to do those!).
We were really happy with the outcome, a little neatening up with a craft knife once it dries - don't try to cut wet wallpaper, it rips!
I'm a happily married 30 something who has a fondness for planning and organising, an appreciation for spreadsheets, a love of all things wedding, a passion for DIY and am totally smitten with our two cats Bruce and Eddie.
