Last spring I had an urgent need to make repairs in the newly purchased apartment. Due to the fact that the living space was planned just to rent out, the amount of repair was very limited. Throughout the week, I was invited and met with a large number of specialists. Amount and terms of all called different, but none of the proposals did not suit me, and then I decided to do all the repairs myself. It was decided to use the simplest approach. On the floor lay linoleum. Wall to glue paper Wallpaper. The to order the suspended ceiling, because it is beautiful and very fast.
All work, in addition to wallpapering, we wanted to involve additional entities. Linoleum needed someone to raise, and then another, and rolled from room to room. Installation of suspended ceilings, I immediately decided to trust the professionals, so the first thing took up wallpapering. Against the advice of the masters, it was decided not to plaster the walls, and just fluff them with primer deep penetration.
Bought glue and Wallpaper, simple paper. Armed with rags, sponges, scissors, rollers, buckets, level and stepladder. Floors to lay, I did not, bed floor tape where you put the glue on the Wallpaper. Gathering thoughts and leaving behind all the prejudices about the possible failure, I got down to business. The process of wallpapering, turned out to be surprisingly simple, albeit monotonous.
Area of the apartment is equal to one hundred square meters. At the same time, all the rooms in it, about the same for squaring. In total, three rooms, kitchen and hallway, it took me ten days of continuous operation. Seventy rolls of Wallpaper were cut and sticked on a pre-programowanie wall. The savings have been enormous. The amount left is ten times lower than asked for the most modest of the master. In the end, the difference was spent on the purchase of linoleum and ceilings. Not bad, I think.
