Textured Wallpaper in Kitchen

5 Materials
3 Hours

I wanted a easy and frugal update to my kitchen.
I cleaned the walls with bleach water then sanded briefly with sandpaper.
I then wiped all the walls down and dried once more.
I used $14 textured wallpaper from Lowes. I soaked the paper for 30 seconds, then folded together for 5 minutes before placing on the wall. It's called booking and it's to fully activate the glue on the back. I then used a tool to flatten against the wall. I then used a small cutting knife that provided a clean cut on corners.
I love the outcome so far. This wallpaper is textured and can also be painted.

    I wonder how it would work if you put a matte finish polyurethane over it? It would prevent spotting and grease soaking I think. What's your thoughts on it?

    Do you remember the name that made the wallpaper because when I push the link it sends me to a different design then what's on yours and I want that exact design you have

    Did you seal to prevent staining from splashes

    I found out that allen and roth makes it and it's called squares. I can only find 1 roll on the WHOLE internet!!!! It is discontinued and must have been really popular! I guess I'm just gonna have to find another pattern that I like.. 😔

    This makes me happy. I found this same paper at Lowes on clarence years ago, for just a few $. I painted it with a satin Kitchen and bath premium latex paint. It has been up for 5 years and it looks as fresh and clean as the day I completed.
