BLUE WILLOW KITCHEN PROJECT 4


   
STEP FOUR Add the wallpaper, skirting boards and flooring.

  Blue Willow wallpaper
We have designed the Blue Willow wallpaper especially to match our dinner service and wash set.  
1. Print out the wallpaper using normal quality print on a good quality matt paper. As inkjet ink is water soluble, use a clear fixative spray to seal the front and back of the paper to prevent the ink running when water based paste is applied.

2. Cut the remaining walls from heavy card and apply the wallpaper. We used Grandmother Stover's glue (available from good miniatures shops) which we thin with warm water to a creamy consistency.

 
3. Assemble the walls using square section wood to reinforce the joints.

4. Lay the flooring of your choice. We used floor boards which we sanded and varnished.

5. Glue the finished mantelpiece to the front of the chimney breast. (Note: the front span is a little lower than the actual opening).

6. Cut lengths of skirting board to size and varnish or paint before sticking to walls over the wallpaper and on top of the flooring.
