First, I TOTALLY agree with not avoiding the fun of "picking the wallpaper boogers" from your fingers! :O) I thoroughly enjoyed this post! Years ago I decoupaged a dresser like this. I used red rosin paper from Home Depot (in the painting section by the floor protectors). I remember trying to get all the crinkles in my wet, scrunched up paper bc I had wanted it to look more leathery or suede like. Would you know that, 7-8 years later it is still stuck on there? Anyway, I waffle a bit, LOL! Your walls look fantastic and cover up all that horrible panelling beautifully! Might I add the I love your art work?  The horses and the other two framed pieces look awesome on that wall treatment. You really did an lovely job!

That looks really cool! It's like, decoupaging on a massive scale! :-) I doubt I've got the patience or skill level for that huge of an undertaking (yet), so I'll just stick to decoupaging light switch plates. :-P

Please don't clean up my mess; you'll confuse me and screw up my world!

Chuckling out loud at the descriptive tutorial for this project!  It sounds easy and the finished results are beautiful.  Thanks for taking the intimidation out of rewalling!

We have a 100 yr old house with a lot of walls that are not pretty, was thinking about doing this to them.  My question is, can you paint over it once it is dry?  Should it be primed first?
