I loved this paper so much I may hang it in a room in my own home. The dark paper was the original paper.
Although there was some prep work, I did not have to worry about much of it because the homeowner removed all the existing paper and took down the lights and other things from the walls. He did an amazing job, I must add. I then repaired some areas and primed the walls.
The paper went up beautifully although my photos do not capture the finished look as well as I had wished.
