First thing was to wrap the “trunk” section of the Tokonoma with some bamboo paper to match the wallpaper. I managed to match up fairly well the bamboo to somewhat simulate a bamboo trunk.

Working on the pieces for the rest of the Tokonoma required a little planning because the room is full of shades of green and wallpaper. So I wallpapered the left side wall piece and painted green the internal wall and upper right side wall piece.
Fitting was tricky and I had to actually assemble the wall dividers in pieces rather than inserting them into place. They never really match up as the concave areas that were pre-made in the kit just can’t ever match up. But some sanding and coaxing and the sections fit in. Glueing and leaving to stand for a while always does the trick.
