1. Determine the placement of the panels on your wall. We centered our panels 6 inches above the baseboard, 6 inches below the crown molding, 6 inches in from the door frame, and 6 inches from each other. Measure paper to fit; use a molding corner to trace the round arch for each panel corner. Cut along traced lines. Paste wallpaper onto wall.
2. Glue molding corners onto each arch.
3. Using miter saw, cut molding pieces to create a seam with molding corners. Glue 4 molding strips onto wall. Repeat process for each panel.
4. Using putty knife, patch seams with spackling paste. Sand seams to smooth down.
5. Paint each molding frame carefully— hold scrap paper up to the wallpaper side of the molding as you paint to protect wallpaper (painter's tape can damage wallpaper). Use a moist, clean cloth for drips.
