Awhile back, I shared that we've started updating the master bedroom which adjoins our bathroom. I'm super excited about this change because it means that the two rooms will flow together from a color and design standpoint.
As I mentioned in that post, the wallpaper border will not come off AT ALL, so Spouse tried painting over it. To my complete surprise, it WORKS! After a couple of coats of paint, it's completely covered. Had I known that we could "just" paint over it successfully, I might have pressed for this update a few years ago! :)
To make sure there is no little "ridge" of wallpaper border, Spouse has been lightly peeling and sanding the bottom edge. This little trick has worked perfectly.
After this first coat dries, the walls will need a second coat to ensure good coverage.
But I already love the change! Color makes all the difference.
After this room, we will have only one more room with wallpaper border to remove or cover. Somehow Spouse doesn't want to talk about that just yet! :) One project at a time!
