For ds's bedroom. He's only 9 months though.

I saw a lovely one with stars on, on the Mamas and Papas site reduced to a £1 a roll but they've sold out unsuprisingly.

Just want something cheap to make do while we have the cash to decorate properly.

don't get a border as they're a bitch to get off when you redecorate - get some stickaraounds that you can easily peel off and reuse afterwards

Coolest are from Blik, more mianstream ones here and here

Its just the last owners stuck a scooby doo one up and I took it off no probs but theres a real mess above the window and thats obviosuly why they put it up to start with.

I do like stick arounds though.

Hmmm as gorgeous as the Blik ones are, they are too expensive.

You may regret it. Am currently cursing the barstewards who put a border around the middle of sitting room walls (with stripey wallpaper on bottom, patterned on top, naturally) as it means I have to either strip the lot or cover it with Polycell special thick undercoat before I can paint it a nice, neutral colour.
PLUS the ceiling is very heavily beamed. It's going to take me until christmas.

Well the reason I dont mind is that eventually I will be taking the lot off.

But atm its a basic anyglipter painted pale blue but it has lining paper and woodchip underneath!

In the front room I stripped 5 layers of paper and 2 borders lol.

Hence why I want cheap as its only a stop gap but want to make the room look a bit nicer.

but you would reuse the Blik ones in the new room - they peel off and restick (so long as on paint not wallpaper)

Hmm i'd say don't have one too.
When we moved in here ds was 18mths old and we painted his room baby blue and put a car border up. He is now 4, and the baby blue is still fine, but he is so not a car person but taking it off will wreck the papepaint.

Did the same in dd's room, blummin disney proncess border which i hate.

the m&p one was lovely though

ideally the lot will come off and it will be re plastered. but need the cash to do it
