Anaglypta Supaglypta Spencer Wallpaper made of recycled paper and cotton
As I have mentioned before, the people before me went nuts with texturizing the ceilings in my house. I can't stand it but having someone get rid of it will be time consuming and expensive, therefore, no high-gloss paint for me! Alas, this might be a good solution. It is inexpensive wallpaper meant to be painted and costs $24.00 a roll. The black paint used above is high-gloss marine paint which works well in rooms with potential water splatter. Not only does it give you the ability to customize your color but also gives a nice texture to the walls without using costly tile. In one example (not pictured here), someone had plastered and painted a patina over it for an old European feel. Please note: I am NOT speaking of icky 1980's "sponge" painting! I especially like the idea of this on a ceiling when going for a vintage look. Saving money on this means more money for a chandelier right!?! Funny how my ways of "saving" money lead to other expensive things. A female philosophy indeed.
