Step Three: Line Up Your Pattern

If you are using a solid color, you can skip this step. If your wallpaper has any sort of pattern on it (stripes, plaid, etc.) lay two rolls side-by-side and line up the patterns. Then, on one sheet, mark where you want the bottom of the pattern to lie, and measure about four inches down from that point to give yourself a little wiggle room. Using a straight edge (we used a t-square, but you can use the carpenter’s level again), draw a line across the width of the paper, and carefully trim along this line. Repeat this process with your other rolls of wallpaper.
