Hi, I'm John Dewey, and welcome to my Knoxville wallpapering website.
In the photo below, I'm the one on the right!

A lifetime of experience
In 1976 I attended the U.S. School of Professional Paperhanging in Rutland Vermont. This was the start of my lifetime of wallpapering. 
I had quite a career in Massachusetts until 2005 when I decided to move to Cape Town, South Africa, and get married! Conway Twitty and loretta Lynn’s “Lousiana Woman, Mississippi Man” was nothing compared to this!

My wife started Wallaroo Wallpapering in Cape Town, so that I could legally work, and we succeeded way beyond expectations. We worked for the leading designers in South Africa, and worked at many, many, prestigious wine estates, and hotels.  
See our portfolio page for some photos and descriptions of the wonderful places we worked, and the wallpapers we installed. 
In early 2019, though wallpapering was still flourishing in Cape Town and South Africa, we decided to return to my home country. The extremely high incidence of crime in South Africa and the state of near-collapse as regards infrastructure made our decision easy. We are very much enjoying being back in the good old USA, and particularly in Tennessee, and the Knoxville-Maryville area, and we are here to stay.  
I still enjoy installing wallpaper, and put my all, into every job, regardless of size. I want your wallpaper to look as fabulous as you hoped.  
The testimonials below speak highly of my professionalism and craftsmanship, that you CAN, and SHOULD expect of me. 

November 2019 - Stephanie from Notting Hill Road, Knoxville

"John was a pleasure to work with and prompt to get the job done. His work speaks for itself-beautiful. He was very knowledgeable about the process, and provided all the supplies. I will definitely ask him to help me with some more wall-covering projects in the future and I strongly recommend him."  
October 2019 - Linda in Tellico Village

"John installed wallpaper in four rooms of our new home. All the areas look fabulous, and we are happy to have hired him. You will be too. John provided a professional and friendly service."  
September 2019 - Susan in Oak Ridge

"Thank you and Lydia for doing such a great job with the wallpaper on Monday. It looks beautiful. Best of luck with your business. I will pass your name along and recommend you all if the opportunity arises"
