Farrow and Ball Wallpapering Job

Post by gc1967 » Sat Apr 20, 2019 9:06 pm

Lovely job all finished and paid.
Filled the walls under dado rail and sanded all walls down.
I applied a coat of size to walls beneath dado rail.
Then I wallpapered the walls with £110.00 per roll Farrow and Ball Wallpaper.

Very nice job but nothing to say about the taste of the owners. That turboprop wallpaper and the pine door (photo 3) or the cheap shite radiator suck.... sorry, but as I said nothing to do with your work. Obviously, money does not buy taste.

I have to agree with Ochaye, the room as configured just cannot justify the wallpaper at that cost, the rad and doors are what one would prepare for rovers breakfast. Definitely function over form.

Nice job though, can’t fault the workmanship.

It was a waste of time hanging the wallpaper, they didn't even want the walls above painted, but the customer is always right and was a nice little earner for me so I'm happy
