    Wallpapering - decorators

    Morning all,

    Does anyone have a mate or a trusted ecorator they can lend or recomend to me?

    The prices being quoted by local decorators (yellow pages and paper shops) is ridiculous.

    I have about 20 rolls of wallpaper to hang in my new office before close of business on Friday and i'm being quoted $200 to $500 PER ROLL!! Now, is it just me or is this taking the piss? I've had 3 guys quote me $11,000 to hang 20 rolls

    I already have the wallpaper and paste, the walls have been cleaned and primed, all i need is a nice little person to come in and hang the paper. There aren't even any fidly bits to do. Just straight lines.

    I'd happily pay someone $2,000 for what is probably less than a days work. Surely someone must have a mate?
