It's been a while since I focused on my Lundby build (apart from picking at the carpet in my spare moments...) and since I figured that I needed time to think through all the answers to yesterday's question (thanks, guys!) and decide which approach to take, it was time to pull it back to the front of the queue.
Where I finally decided to try using a hairdryer to soften the glue holding the flocking onto the bedroom floor.
And realised just how much time I'd wasted picking the flocking off without it.
Next up was finishing the repapering. Paula had sent me a message last month asking me if I'd checked the Swedish-language version of the Lundby site for wallpaper templates, as they seemed to be working just fine.
(Erm, no I hadn't and when I followed her links they did indeed work just fine. Thanks Paula!).
So I printed the lounge side wall templates out on card and cut them out.
Except there was a problem...
I thought at first that perhaps they hadn't printed out in the correct scale.
And while checking that, noticed that the template said it was for the 1999-2011 Småland. I'm hacking a 2014: perhaps that's my problem?
I went upstairs to check some photos of various Smålands, and it slowly dawned on me that I'd printed the right-hand lounge wall template and what I really needed was the left wall bedroom wall template, as although the wall is in the lounge in my build, it's originally the bedroom.
So, feeling smug, I printed out the correct template and returned downstairs to cut it out and check the fit.
Perhaps I could warm up the glue under the wallpaper, peel off the wallpaper and use it as a template? No.
Even better, could I prise the window off if I heated up the glue? Also no.
So I cheered myself up by cutting out the template for the right-hand wall. Which fitted perfectly.
And decided to take my frustrations out on pulling apart a Lundby sofa that I need to recover for the build...
