Re: Transition From Wallpaper to Paint
Use a 1" or so wide strip of a different but complementary wallpaper as a transition border. Best if it has the look of a border. Do your painting before adding the border, so the paint runs under the border -- then you don't have to mask or cut in.
You'll get a more professional result if you cut the existing paper to an absolutely straight line and butt the border up to it, rather than overlapping. On the corner, you would want the border on the same face of the corner as the wallpaper. The paint should wrap around the corner and under the border.
