Wallpapering seems to have gone out of fashion lately. But the blandness of our bathroom, with beige tiles in the shower area and halfway up the wall, called for a little bit of something besides paint. I'm not really imaginative with sponge-painting and stuff like that, so I decided to go the wallpaper route.
They really didn't have too much to offer at Lowe's, and I really had to think about where else wallpaper is available. There's a small store near our house called White St. Paint and Paper, so I headed there.
Here I found the old-fashioned wallpaper store, with big books of samples you could peruse through. Since I was only wallpapering a small area, I chose to buy a double-roll right off the rack. It cost me $6.
Here's a glimpse of what the bathroom walls looked like after I pulled down the atrocious wallpaper they already had there.
Of course, I can see every single little mistake, bump, bubble, etc. But hopefully, overall, it looks better than it did before.
