Paper Hanging Don'ts

To pay for college, I was a paperhanging tradesman. It paid great and gave me a lot of autonomy and a powerful sense of accomplishment to be financially independent. And, I learned the trade from my dad. Pretty cool. One of the cardinal sins of hanging wall paper is not being aware of the opacity of the material you're working with. This photo captured with my iPhone while staying at a Marriott recently shows that it's "65 1/2" inches from this point to the corner. This qualifies and a very niche insider joke.
