I haven't either, but have watched dh do it, go from corner to corner rather than trying to wrap around corner (did that make sense ??) because if your walls are 'out' you will end up going wonky HTH

I have but it was ready pasted or sticky or whatever so you just peeled the back off as you went round. Was quite easy actually.

Oh, except I was 6 months pregnant at the time and I fell off the ladder and spent the evening in Casualty with a load of piss head lads - it was Christmas Eve. Nice!

I have (well I've patched one a decorator put up) and it was remarkably simple

I think the main thing is to make sure you're doing it straight (visually) .. maybe draw a line around with a spirit level then step back and look at it

then just go for it
