Painting Textured Wallpaper

October 2, 2010

As with almost every renovation I do – I got sidetracked while waiting for the closet paint to dry and decided to paint the wallpaper in my room. This is a textured wallpaper and is paintable – I put it up about a year ago but never liked the peach color next to my cumin walls. So I decided to paint it a soft cream white in a satin finish. I also decided to add to the wooden trim that I had put up previously – giving a more custom look. The trim is along the seems as well – which helps with the adhering of the wall paper – eliminates fraying – and helps with pattern matching. It also looks great!

So 36 hours later the wall is white – with larger trim and it looks fab! Sometimes less is more – and in this case it was wise to take away the extra color of peach and brighten the room. Okay back to the closet……
