I painted all the 'grey' areas very carefully and beautifully and then came up with this wheeze which I think looks OK. It would look even better if I could 'dirty' it up and add moss and the odd weed. Not a talent I have.......... as yet........nothing stopping me doing it much later in my house's life when I have nothing else to do. I wish someone would do a 'dirty-it-up' class.

|cut into individual slabs and trimmed to size|
If I am sticking any papers on my house I always use border adhesive. Any make will do. To be honest I think it is just PVA glue but it does seem silkier somehow? Whatever it is, it is very strong and will bond the heaviest paper to wood or painted wood. Think this one was the cheapest B & Q sell but I am not sure about that as I have had it a long time.
I think the steps and pavement look much better 'slabbed' than they did painted:
|pretty good pavement???|
|top slab and front edge are made with separate papers so I could get in a full width slab|
