Can anyone recommend a wall paper hanger? I'd like to put
up grasscloth on an accent wall. I live in the Lamorinda
I can highly recommend Heidi Wright in Montclair.
email@example.com She installed a wallpaper frieze in
my living room about 2 months ago and it looks perfect. She
did it all in one day - she is very organized. I have hung
wallpaper myself in the past, but in this case I planned to
use some pricey Bradbury & Bradbury paper in my 1912
Craftsman home, and since the house has settled over the
years the walls and ceiling are all a little out of kilter,
I wanted a professional to come do it. Heidi came out
and took measurements and told me how much wallpaper to
order, and then made an appointment to come back to hang the
paper. She primed the wall first, cut all the papers, and
hung it. It looks amazing! I found her by going to the
professional organization http://www.ngpp.org/ and she was
the only one in the area who could schedule me within 6
months. She is very good - you won't be disappointed!
Hey there fellow BPNers,
I'm loving all the cool new wallpapers out there, and would like to paper an accent
wall in my home. Actually hanging the paper, however, is not something I feel
confident about trying. Can anyone recommend a skilled wallpaper hanger? (I
checked the archives, but there's only one recommendation from several years ago.)
Is this something that a painting contractor would/could do? (That would be ideal,
since I have some painting needs as well.) Or should I look for a paper-only person?
Any recommendations would be most appreciated.
Thanks so much!
For wallpapering and excelllent painting, I recommend Susanne
George (510) 289-0713. She has painted every room in my house,
stripped some very tenacious old paper and re-papered with
skill. She is in the East Bay.
Two or three years ago I used PAPER DOLLS WALLPAPERING 510-235-
4759. They did a great job and it still looks great. My
wallpaper was not trimmed so they also had to trim it - they
probably would not do that again, but they did at that time.
I would highly recommend them.
Does anyone know where I can find cut-out wall decorations with
a fairy tale theme (princess, fairy, castle, unicorn, flowers,
trees, etc.) for my daughter's bedroom? The kind that I can
just peel off and stick on the wall. Physical stores or website
addresses would be very helpful. Thank you very much.
You might try Wallies...they are wallpaper shapes that apply
with just a bit of water. This theme from their website
might be what you are looking for:
Hi, I found ''wallpaper'' designs that have all sorts of
choices (fairies and castles included) at Michael's (it's a
chain so there are lots of stores, but closest one to
Berkeley is in Emeryville). The brand name for these
decorations is ''Wallies''-- I think you can also get them
off the internet. The application on the wall is easy--
just wet and stick and they have proved quite durable.
I received a few recommendations for wallpaper hangers from the wallpaper
dept. at Pursel Quality Paints on University (845-7525). We used a man
named Denny Sheehan who did a great job - he primed and hung the paper in
1 day plus 1 morning. He charges by the roll, but I can't recall how much -
our total was around $380 for one room. I can't find his number but I'm
sure you can get it from Pursel.
