Here is another textured, paintable wallpaper, also by the Anaglypta company (#RD803). However, whereas the paper I hung yesterday in the same house was paper and had a waffled back (Anaglypta “Original”), this one is made of expanded vinyl. I found this one easier to work with, and I liked its performance better.

The pattern reminds you of the dados (area under a chair rail) that were popular in the early 1900’s, in the style of Art Nouveau.

I hung this on the bottom of the walls in a dining room in Oak Forest. Once it’s good and dry, it will be painted, and then the homeowner, who is quite artistic, will go over it with a glaze, which will stick to the lower areas, creating an aged effect. I will get photos of the finished room when I go back next month to hang some more wallpaper.

Addendum:  The bottom photo was taken three weeks later, when I went to do two other rooms.  Here you see how the painted and glazed faux-finish turned out.  In the whole-room setting, it looks fantastic!
