    How hard is it?

    Its one of those self adhesive ones so its just a matter of getting it straight. Im trying to finish maisies room and its the last thing i need to do but not sure how to attempt it. SHall i just stick it up and hope for the best? :rofl: or does it really need to be levelled and marked ect?

    I did ours and as long as u take your time it's quite easy. I had a rail to match it up against so prob why I found it do easy. If I hadn't id have marked the wall with a small pencil mark so u can follow it

    Good luck :)

    OH has just done our nursery :) he measured it all, and used a spirit level to get it straight, then just put a light pencil mark on the wall, it looks great :)

    Good luck. xxxx

    Me and OH done it in LOs nursery, we just stood on chairs (its near the top of the wall) and held it at a side each, was dead easy!!

    Im sure you'll be able to do it yourself, just take you time :)
