Prepare for Installation
For a partial-height wall treatment, there will need to be a transition trim piece between the lower covering and the upper painted wall. If your room has no chair rail (an easy midheight stopping point), then horizontal trim will need to be installed over the burlap top edge. It will also be easiest if any existing base trim is removed and reinstalled over the burlap. In this case, a simple 1x trim was used and painted. Measuring from the floor, mark the finished height of the burlap (less trim) and transfer the line across the wall with a 4' level. Finally, switch off power to any outlets and remove trim plates. Cut burlap roll into pieces that correspond to panel sizes.
