Welcome to our decorating guide, in this part of the guide we will take you through the process of decorating a ceiling, we take you through the process from hanging lining paper to hanging the ceiling covering. To complete this task you will need the following items: Ceiling Covering Lining Paper Appropriate Paste Stanley Knife (trimming knife) Pair of suitable Scissors Sponge Tape Measure Paste Brush 2 Trestle tables (or step ladders) and two scaffold boards Paperhanging brush Decorating table (pasting table) 1 Bucket for the Paste 1 Bucket of Clean Water Wooden Stick (to mix the paste) Wallpaper Seam Roller Soft nib Pencil Broad knife Trimming Tool Rule When working at heights always ensure that the structure is safe and secure. Never stretch out, always get down and re-position the scaffold. Lining Paper Why use lining paper? It is worth the extra effort of using lining paper to give a better finish, especially if the ceiling has imperfections that may protrude underneath the covering. Lining paper needs to be hung at a 90º angle to the final covering paper, this stops the edges of both papers lining up and protruding, it also reduces the risk of the final covering upseating the first. First we need to decide how many rolls we need, take your tape measure (steel) and measure the run of the room (in this case the length of the room), add 10cm (100mm) onto this measurement. Now measure the width of the room (remember to take into account any alcoves you may have). Next note the width and length of the lining paper. Roll Calculation: 1. Divide the roll length by the run length to give the number of lengths per roll --call this A -- 2. Divide the width of the room by the roll width to give the number of lengths required Using the measurements of the example room above we will work

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
