Thank you, Tony Blunt, re your comment about gluing well the edge of the wallpaper as I'd asked Is there a professional way to anchor or finish the edge where the wallpaper meets a painted corner.. or a product to 'paint over' or seal the edge?


I'll attach photos of 2 edges that I'm concerned about -- I think they're passed the glue-fixing point :[ And is there such a handyman as a wallpaper fix-it bloke? I live in Brisbane.

More glue along the edge. Leave for 5 mins so the glue soaks into the wallpaper. Then use a plastic scraper to to flatten wallpaper edge. The wipe clean with a sponge excess glue. I am professional painter for more than 30 years in Adelaide if you call a professional I sure they would come out fix it for you.
