We have some of that orange peel...or whatever it's called. The popcorn ceiling is gone though! Yay!
I do however, want to try the new peel and stick wallpaper on the master bath here in Frisco. I am a wallpaper person but hubby is not! I figured the peel and stick may not make him too mad since it's not a pain to remove when you get tired of it. I've been reading about it for awhile and I'm going for it. I think that wallpaper is making a comeback.
We have used peel and stick. Here's a few suggestions. Clean the walls, but without soap. No residue - just water and let dry. Slightly and very slightly overlap the wallpaper edges, and put some paste in the paste in the corners. First time, used soapy water and didn't remove enough so edges peeled, didn't overlap - (i'll blame humidity, as we are newbies on wallpaper, but it shrank it seemed and had gaps between), and we had to paste the corners (likely more related to soapy water)
Since though, we have done three rooms - no problems since.
