Paintable Textured Wallpaper

November 4, 2011

Today I did a small master bathroom, just two walls, with a textured paintable wallpaper. I was happy to see that the paper is made by York, which is a very good manufacturer, because other similar papers made by other companies have posed problems.

The walls had a lot of damage, but once I got them skim-coated and sanded smooth and then primed, the paper went up beautifully and looks great.

The particular pattern was a basket weave, which I could not find on the company’s website, but what the heck?… Everything else on the site is just gorgeous. There are traditional patterns, contemporary patterns, reproductions of Art Deco and Art Nouveau patterns, boarders, and more.

These papers look good enough as they are, but are intended to be painted. Because the papers are textured, they look super when done with a base coat, then followed with a thin glaze spread over the top and then wiped off, leaving the darker glaze just in the recessed areas.

Take a look at what York has to offer in this line: http://www.yorkwall.com/CGI-BIN/lansaweb?webapp=WBRAND3+webrtn=BRANDD3+ml=LANSA:XHTML+partition=YWP+language=ENG+sid=
