They make textured, paintable beadboard WALLPAPER???!!!

Have I been living under a rock? Why haven't I heard of this before?!

This is right up there with the discovery of fire!!
A little much?
Okay. Then it's right up there with the invention of the wheel!!

Remember my hatred for these butt ugly bi-fold doors that hide my washer and dryer off the kitchen??

Well guess what I'm going to wallpaper?!
You guessed it... the living room!!!
For a second there you thought I lost it, huh?

Don't be silly! Of course I meant those butt ugly bio-fold doors!

I was going to buy a thin sheet of wood and go through all the trouble of cutting it into strips to make my own beadboard. But with beadboard wallpaper, I don't have to!


Here it is on some sliding doors. Look how cute!
I may be wrong, but those hinges look painted on. I'm going to use real ones.

But I'll have to wait until it stops feeling like we're living on the surface of the sun and this heatwave passes.

In the meantime, I'll continue to wait in anticipation and do my happy dance and sweat!

**tap**tap**tap** Whew! **tap**tap**tap** Whew!

Wow, I really like this idea. It will really brighten up that corner a lot I bet. I can't wait to see it finished. Stay cool and if you have air conditioning I don't feel sorry for you as I do not, :(

I saw that in blogland and love it!

I just used this paper on a wall in our carriage room! It looks so nice - have fun using it...can't wait to see how the doors turn out.

This is great stuff. Not too difficult to use and really does look like breadboard! Enjoy this project! How exciting to have a fun something to be able to do inside that doesn't involve paint!

Of course, Peri the not quite awake meant it looks like BEADboard. Aaaargh.

Judi, no central air in this old farmhouse. Just a couple of window units that help take the edge off.
Dixie, I saw it on Pinterest!
Wendy, do you have pic on your blog? I bet it looks great!
Peri, breadboard sounds good too!! You know I love to make homemade bread! (hee-hee)
Thanks, Carol.
I'll be sure to post pics when I'm done!!
