I am new to this community. Me and husband just completed transforming our living room wall. Thought to share to show gratitude for what Bunnings provide!

That looks pretty classy. Can you tell us which products you used to create that result please?
Thank you Jason.
Yeah, it feels great to see everyone’s creativity. This is what actually I was looking for, feels I am at the right place.
Products: (all from Bunnings)
1) Superfresco Easy Black Checker Wallpaper - Black Checker Sample
2)Superfresco Easy Wallpaper Adhesive
3)42mm x 18mm x 2.7m Pre-Oiled Merbau FJ Screening.
Other products were just the regular ones:
Masking tape, prep sheets to cover the furniture, nail gun, circular saw, utility cutter.
Plan and process:
So, we had a clear plan on what we needed. We had an eye on this wallpaper since long time. As soon as it was available at one of the Bunnings stores’ we went and collected. It’s a special edition wallpaper - not all the stores have it readily available.
You can place a special order though. I preferred to look, feel and thn buy it, so was waiting for it to be available, was lucky to find it for Maribyrnong store VIC. We measured the wall first - and then watched
some videos on how to apply. We used the adhesive glue - that can b diluted in water.
Suggestion from experience: have two rolls extra then what you calculate as it cuts off too many edges to have that correct alignment.
Wooden panels portion: we painted that part in Black first because the original colour was beige.
Wooden panel used:
- my husband cut this panels using drop saw as per the size and used nail gun to hold them to the studs. As well as liquid nails where there was no stud.
Hope this helps, happy to answer if I have missed something.
Thanks heaps @Monika1 for those details. It is a very impressive result for your efforts and investment. I admire your dedication to getting the required result by waiting for the right wallpaper to become available.
