Linny 8 years I've seen some cool ones. I like the really bold/graphic designs or the metallic/foil ones, but I don't know where I would put it. maybe a door or something. I rent now anyway so it doesn't really matter. I'm not going to be wallpapering any time soon. JaimeLeah526 8 years I don't like wallpaper at all. My husband does but I have a feeling he'll be hanging it by himself if he wants it. paii 8 years I have never used wallpaper.

It's this huge underwater mural with dolphins and coral and fish. It looks REALLY nice and it only cost me $25!!! katherynn 8 years I'm pretty picky on wallpaper. There are so many BAD designs out there. I like what the new wallpaper designers are coming up with though. the last time I used wallpaper was a few years ago. We tore some out of a bedroom and it ruined the wall for painting (the person behind us didnt prepare the sheetrock first (d'oh!)). So we had to do something. We put up a textured paper and painted over that. it was subtle and pretty. lolany 8 years I've hung it many time, both at friends, my parents and in two rooms in my own house. It's a great solution if your walls are less than perfect - but you obviously want forgiving patterns on those walls, or very subtle patterns. The trick is to know how to measure well and where to start. Other than that, it's pretty easy. I do prefer painted wall however. chancleta 8 years i'm not a wall paper chic...looks hard to get up and down tiff58 8 years I do like SOME wallpaper, but I would be too scared to do it myself. vienvien 8 years I have a tendency to shy away from wallpaper because I don't want my walls to be looking busy with patterns. I'm more of a "Zen-type, minimalist, sleek " person and that's what I aspire for in my house. Plus wallpapers can peel off and it's unsightly . glam-sugar 8 years I've installed a border years ago but I'd probably never do it again. studio524 8 years Wallpaper is just too much of a comittment if you ask me. staceyleeroberts 8 years Tried putting up wallpaper on my own, turned into a total mess and ended up wasting $ on expensive wall papaer that I had to repurchase and have a pro put up! books-and-shoes 8 years I grew up with a wallpapered house but I prefer the painted look. Plus if I found some really lovely wallpaper I liked, I'm too scared to make that kind of commitment.
