After spending a fortune on some' famous' brand rolls of paper
+ more money on paste, a bucket, a brush, ruining a perfectly
good table and wasting most of the roll due to 'matching' the
so-called pattern, (who has walls 20ft deep?) plus the end
result resembles ageing lining paper - but that's
problem. I just thought it would be great to have self adhesive
wall paper - might cost a little extra, but given the options I
think it's worth it.
Sorry if it's been done before - I did do a search, really.

||you can get wallpaper now, that requires you to paste the wall instead of the paper which I think is a brilliant idea. then there was the ready pasted stuff that you dipped through a water trough. the only problem I can see with the self adhesive option, is that it probably will not allow much leeway for adjustment once on the wall. croissant for your nerves however.
||(The whole *point* of wallpaper is that you get to spend a fortune. Otherwise you'd just paint the walls another coat of whitewash.)
