1 Pro­tect the area not be­ing painted by mask­ing it off. then prep the area that will be painted by lightly sand­ing all over. Wipe off any dust. 2 choose your paint – chalk paint will give a su­per-matt fin­ish, eggshell or sat­in­wood are durable op­tions with a low sheen, and gloss will give a hard-wear­ing, high shine ef­fect. 3 Paint two to three coats to pro­vide an even fin­ish. 4 to add the wall­pa­per back­ing, re­move any han­dles or shelves (de­pend­ing on where you’re ap­ply­ing the paper). cut the wall­pa­per to size, ap­ply an ad­he­sive such as wall­pa­per paste or Pva glue to the area, po­si­tion the wall­pa­per, and care­fully smooth out any air bub­bles. 5 neaten any un­tidy edges with a Stan­ley knife. once the side­board is com­pletely dry, re-fit the han­dles or shelves.
