Textured Wallpaper in Kitchen

I wanted a easy and frugal update to my kitchen. FYI I just removed the wallpaper and it came right down. It lasted 3 years.

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 also did this and love it. It's been several years and I would like to remove and replace. Any suggestions as to how to reach that far back corner. My arms could hardly reach and I had quite a time getting the paper on there evenly and then triming it. At 74, lying on my countertop is not a good option.
