How to create your own custom feature wall?
Mark out each panel with the width of the wallpaper and the spaces between each panel. We decided to have three panels at 12000 millimeters long and 120 centimeters wide, with a 200 mill gap between each frame.
Measure and cut your wallpaper. It’s okay if the lines are not as straight as you’ll be later covering it up with battens.
Apply your Wallpaper.
We applied our wallpaper using premixed glue to the wall with a large dense brush. Starting from the top and then easing the paper on to the wall with a sponge. Making sure that you have no air bubbles. If you do it’s as simple as lifiting it off gently and the going again.
Then it’s simply repeat this process three times.
Now to frame these!
We just using simple square cut straight edge battens from bunnies. They already come pre-primed so they going to be a dream to put on!
We are going to create simple white frames around each panel. We are giving them one coat of paint and then we finish them with another one once they apply.
The final step is to install these battens. Once they are up, we putty up the nail holes, sand them down and finish them with a final coat!
