How to Repair Wallpaper Hardware Holes

Fig.1 Wallpaper Damage
By Gary Boutin

Supplies and Tools:
Beige caulking
Finger, brush or flat knife

A client in Santa Clarita had holes from drapery hardware that had been removed and wanted this repaired.  

This post shows the three steps to repair these holes.

Step 1: Upper right fig.1 the first step is to spot the hole in the wallpaper, usually there are three holes per drapery hardware bracket. 
Step 2: Fig.2 below, use the tip of your finger and apply a small bit of beige caulking to the hole. If you prefer not to use a finger, a brush or kitchen flat knife will work just as well. So if your wallpaper is white then get white caulking, get the caulking that will match with the wallpaper.

Step 3: Fig.3 through fig.5 these pictures show that the caulking disappears from view, almost like no hole was ever there. Now simple holes can be repaired without having to replace the wallpaper.
