BeadBoard Wallpaper

So apparently it's been around for ages but I had never seen any finished projects using it so was sceptical. When we bought this house it was COVERED...I mean Covered in wallpaper, so you can see my reservation to throw it back on the nice new drywall. But there is one room that is yet to be touched:the upstairs bathroom. Covered & kept in it's original 1975 style, we have left it alone until I saw this! Why not cover the old wallpaper with bead board. It's not peeling, it's in pristine condition so I just bought it from HomeDepot.com for 22.00 a double roll which covers about 52 square feet. Just click on the link and it will take you right to the page if you wanna order it. Perfect! I'm gonna spend the next nights scrubbing and cleaning out everything. I will take pics along the way and let you know how things are working out. In the meantime I have to concentrate on accessories;))

BTW: The above pic is actually the wallpaper I purchased. It's made by Graham Brown and painted blue. Impressive right?

Please let me know if you have ever used this or wallpapered over existing paper.
