This quick tutorial explains how to install wallpaper that gives any pantry, closet, or cabinet an instant facelift. While the process itself is simple and easy, you’ll need to be prepared, as this weekend project requires quite a few handy tools like a scraper, sponge, plastic spreader, putty knife, measuring tape, primer, scissor, utility knife, paste, and paint roller.

To start, make sure walls are clean and free of any dust. Use wall covering primer before you start to make hanging and removal easy, and measure the wall section you’re covering. Once the panels are placed on the wall, smooth and remove any bubbles, use a putty knife to crease and cut edges, and then squeeze any additional bubbles out again.
