Actually, I ordered it before thinking properly about how to put it up. Then I heard that it would cost $80 (SGD) to get people to come put it up, so I happily waited for my wallpaper to arrive. But when I called the contact, he said it would cost $250! What?!? That would mean more than $300 just for this wallpaper!! No way! So, I put it up myself!Urmm, I didn’t do it the proper way… Didn’t use the paste that came along with it… Didn’t prime the wall…. Didn’t didn’t didn’t… Didn’t put it all the way up to the ceiling (no New Zealand, oops)… Didn’t cut holes for the socket (there’s only one, which happens to be behind the bed). I only used double-sided tape 😛
For two hours of effort, and zero cost installation, I am mighty pleased with the result! Luckily I am not perfectionist, haha!
And the boys are really impressed! And a perfect coincidence that Kor Kor has been interested in the World Wars recently, so the boys are saying they will look at the map to decide which country to attack next haha.
Sometimes things happen in strange ways. Because of the misinformation about the installation costs, I was able to relax and not worry about putting up the wallpaper. By the time I found out the actual cost, it was too late to worry, so Just Do It! : )
