Make sure cube's surface is perfectly smooth—no nails, nail holes or anything that will poke through the wallpaper. A light sanding should do the trick.
If your cube has a dark finish and wallpaper is lighter in color, ensure that the wood won't show through by painting the cube with two coats of white paint. Let dry, then lightly sand.
Cut out a 22-in. square of wallpaper for the top of the cube. Place square, decorative side down, on a table. With a ruler, measure one inch in from each side. Then draw intersecting lines, which will give you a 1-in. square in each corner. Cut squares out, making sure the flaps of paper easily fold over each side. Paste wallpaper to top of cube. Let dry.
Roll out and cut a 76-in. length of wallpaper. Paste wallpaper strip around the base. Line up wallpaper around cube's top edge and trim excess from the bottom. Let dry.
