Painting Over Wallpaper


Here is before photo of our bathroom. A lovely yellow and orange floralish wallpaper! Not my cup of tea.....so I decided to paint it a beautiful turqoise color and started the project while my hubby was away on a business trip.
I got almost all done......... and then....I threw my back out! My hubby loved it and finished it for me. We just simply painted two coats of Behr paint (which we love love love) from Home Depot. We did not prime it, or do anything else to the wall paper...except glue any loose areas where the wallpaper was coming up.




Let me know what you think of the transformation....

  1. Love the new paint color. Glad to know you were able to paint over the wallpaper--I may need to do that on my kitchen walls someday. I put the wallpaper on and used lots of glue, so know it probably wouldn't come off easily! Love your jars and the tiered stands too. TFS. Kay
