Love the canvas texture. The plastic smoothing tool included with all shipments worked well. Any air bubbles left over from me pulling parts up and reapplying disappeared after I pricked them with a needle. For little folds just use your finger to smooth. The canvas texture is very forgiving. My wall wasn’t 100% smooth even after sanding. There weren’t any raised parts on my textured walls but there indents. Canvas texture covered everything and stuck very well. I had painted the wall bright white with two coats a month before. The black/white peony mural is bright white and I noticed with the sample mailed to me that the light gray wall would show through it. After applying the mural I didn’t cut away the overlap because you couldn’t see it at all, again this is because I started with a white wall and there was no color difference where the wall paper was double layered on the overlap. The company was very easy to work with. The first proof they sent me was enlarged and only had a couple peonies because they were so large. I asked them to size the peonies to fit multiple in my mural and I loved the 2nd proof. Great product! Would order again.
