Oval Office's Master Wallpaper Hanger

Today, the New York Daily News publishes an interview with Alan Rada, the man who hung the wallpaper during President Obama's Oval Office decor overhaul back in August. Rada, of the firm DecoRada, was only given six days to complete the task—even though he wanted a full two weeks—and was not permitted to take any wallpaper scraps homes a souvenirs. Hired by decorator Michael Smith, he says it was the most difficult job he's ever completed and that "there's nothing as intimidating as working in the Oval Office." Duh! [NYDN; previously]
