I'm wallpapering the bottom half of the wall and want to top it with a border. Does the border go on the wallpaper, on top edge to edge or slightly over? Help!

There are three ways to deal with below paper and a border cap.Determine the top & bottom of border.Run paper to middle of this area.(1)At this time you can hang border but be advised the ridge where the w/paper stops is likely to show through.(2)If you are handy with spackling you can patch the top edge of w/paper to smooth this ridge.(3)You can hang border and trim bottom edge removing the w/paper that is underneath the border,doing this step a wall at a time.Always use a border or vinyl over vinyl adhesive.Hope this helps!
