The mural is called "Birches" from Berlin Wallpaper and arrived in 8 panels and, as promised in my Black Friday post, I hung it over Thanksgiving weekend. But be warned, where it took Gregory around 30 minutes to install his mural, it took closer to 3 hours to install mine. The paste alone took 30 minutes to set-up (following the enclosed directions). Going around and inside the corners was a bit of a pain, to be honest. And it would probably go more quickly if you have a buddy to help. I did this solo, but found it easier and easier with each panel (thank goodness the first panel is well-covered by the china cabinet...better to hide the few air bubbles I left).
I felt like most of the time was spent waiting for it to dry enough to trim the top and bottom to really get a perfectly finished look. Plus, as the paper dries and shrinks back to its original size (it stretches a bit when you apply the paste), it magically makes most, if not all, of the air bubbles disappear! One note to keep in mind, If you try to trim the paper while it's still damp, even with the sharpest blade, you can tear it...so best to have plenty of patience and take your time.
