We considered having a contractor come in but decided that we could do it ourselves. After looking at several paint colors to match the tile we had put down we decided to go with a textured paint with white bead board paneling.
*Questions and unexpected events that arose during the project:
The painting was much more difficult than we were expecting. Aside from that, we really didn't have anything unexpected come up thru out the course of this project.
* Cost Comments:
2 Gallons of Kilz Primer, 2 gallons of Ralph Lauren River Rock textured paint plus roller attachmen
*My motivation to do this project:
We wanted to update our bathroom.
We decided that we wanted to put bead board on the bottom and a textured paint above so we found a color to match the tile we had recently put down, and concentrated on finding the paint. We had to spend quite some time to tear down the old tacky wall paper and repairing the walls, but once we got that done painting and installing the bead board was a breeze.
We started tearing down the wallpaper with some older chemicals that was left here in the house when we bought it. They gave us nothing but headaches, I would recommend a steamer and some newer chemicals. Once we got both stripping the wall paper became much easier.
