this is what the previous owners of my house did in out TV room! I really like the texture - but I'm not a fan of BROWN - so I'm going to paint over it. Wonder how the texture will look in lime-green??!! Cheesy

You can buy any color paper that you want.  Painting over it looks really nice but it's a major pain to get in all of the little creases and such.  Just make sure you buy a little extra paint than you normally would as the paper will soak it up like a sponge.

This is gorgeous. Just so you know =) I'm still trying to figure out how to redo the walls in my room.. It's a rental, and has this ugly wallpaper decor throughout the whole house. Wish I could do this without risking taking off the original wallpaper in the removal! I love it so much!!

Wowwww, what a gorgeoussssss project!! I think I'll have to pick up some wallpaper paste n paper tomorrow... looks like a great way to decorate my bathroom with its crappy walls and maybe even the kitchen cupboards that a previous tenant painted black (might not have been so bad if they had at least done a decent job of it, lol)

This is amazing, I can't believe how beautiful it is! (I'm obviously needing to think "outside the box" a little more with wall coverings...)

I absolutely love your furniture, too! The green cabinets/ bookshelves look super rad against those gorgeous walls- great job!!

Very cool idea. I like how it's swank in appeal but still cheap and natural. Wink

I did this too and loved the look. Then when we bought an old travel trailer I tried it and though it stuck fine when the moisture got in it the wallpaper started falling off. I know it was my fault for not keeping it heated. But I have a 5th wheel now that the vinyl stuff stuck on wood is peeling and am thinking that might be something to try. But maybe this time with a wallpaper paste with more oomph. Then paint it. I will probably be living in it so it will be heated hopefully. LOL   
I want to do a rustic country look and its such a blank slate right now, it should be so much fun.

This looks awesome! Thanks so much for the instruction on it too! I've been trying to figure out what to do with my sad empty wall-space without going broke in the process O_O I just might have to try this! Like many others have said, the texture is wonderful!
