I bought B&M’s £20 glittery wallpaper for home transformation but it keeps falling off, I’m livid | The Sun

A MUM has been left livid after her bargain £20 wallpaper fell off SEVEN times in a home transformation fail.

Miriam Beck, from Bathgate, West Lothian, bought four rolls of the glittery silver wallpaper from B&M to glitz up her living room after her son and partner moved out.


The 46-year-old splashed out £146 in total on the paper, paint and brushes.

B&M bosses promise the sparkly and shimmering wallpaper will bring "maximum glitz to any space".

They added that it is "designed to turn heads" and provides "glamour by day and by night".

But Miriam's glittery DIY transformation ended in a disaster after repeated attempts to stick the wallpaper to the walls failed.

Miriam said she has decorated her whole house herself and has never experienced an issue before.

The mum of four has now been left "frustrated and infuriated" after super glue, heavy-duty paste, edge glue, no more nails and spray adhesive all failed to keep the wallpaper in place.

She told Edinburgh Live: "Normally, I am good at putting up wallpaper – I have done my whole house myself from top to bottom.

"I wouldn't say I have qualifications, but I know what I need for the job at hand. It's frustrating and infuriating.

"I would put it up one day and the following morning I would go into the living room and see it had fallen down.

"It kept happening again and again to the point where I had to take it down and clean the walls to restart.

"I wish I had just painted them. I kept trying to stick down the wallpaper for over a month."

B&M, however, have insisted that the mum incorrectly applied the wallpaper which resulted in the DIY fail.

A spokesperson for budget store said: “Unfortunately, on this occasion, the customer did not follow the application instructions on the wallpaper.

"This product is a ‘Paste the Wall’ product, and the customer pasted the paper when she first applied it.

"As a gesture of goodwill, we have contacted the customer to provide her with a full refund of the paper she purchased.

"We’d advise any customers in future to ensure they read the instructions carefully before they start any wallpaper DIY project”.
