Dear Doreen Melling

Thank you for contacting Gharpedia & raising a query!

For your problem, here we give you a few solutions which might be helpful to you:

01. Replace the damaged part or sheet of grasscloth wallpaper:

If the wallpaper is damaged in the small area, then scrap out the area where grasscloth wallpaper is damaged. After that, you can just replace damaged portion using the same strip of grasscloth wallpaper.

Note: Grasscloth wallpaper is made with natural materials, hence two rolls do not give the same look. They will be very similar, but they will never be exactly 100% same.

02. Replace Whole Wallpaper:

If the grasscloth wallpaper damaged in a larger area than consider, removing the old entire wallpaper and replace it with the new one.

Here we have provided the video link which will show you how to remove old grasscloth wallpaper, so you can easily remove wallpaper without damaging the wall surface.

03. Using Paint:

Grasscloth wallpaper can be painted, but it is very difficult and costly! Therefore, it is better to remove the whole wallpaper rather than to paint over it. When you paint over wallpaper then it is much harder to remove later when you want to make another change in interior decoration. So, before you paint grasscloth wallpaper, remove whole wallpaper and then paint the wall.

Hope that one of the above solutions will be helpful to you. If you still have any doubts, you can reach us anytime.

Thank You!
