I did it in my bathroom. I have a hollywood bath & well....for the lack of a better phrase, really don't like it. Not much you can do with these. But back to the point. I stripped the wallpaper off of one end of the bathroom, then the shower/tub room. They were peeling & looking pretty shabby for the most part. The bathroom on the other end had good wallpaper. No peeling or anything. I understood that you could paint over that, so I did. No problem as far as painting over it. All I did was lightly wash the surface, let it dry,then applied the paint. Oh & ick what an icky color the paint turned out to be! So I got a much lighter shade of paint, got several feather dusters & stippled the lighter shade over the dark one. Now that looks nice.....but....I have wallpaper lines, so it looks like wallpaper! I'm sure I did alot of work for the same effect of wallpaper :-/ THis was done in March, so far it's holding out. BUT if I were to do it again, I would strip of the wallpaper first. Plus I missed the advantage of the nice textured wall underneath. Now a lightly stained paneling does look nice. Have you considered that?
