My weekend beadboard wallpaper project/laundry room (pics)
My son and I spent the weekend refacing cabinets in the laundry room and upstairs hall using sheesharee's inspiration post as a starting point. I purchased wallpaper that looks like beadboard, some moulding, spackle and wood glue, and a $25 miter saw from Craig's List. I had some leftover semi-gloss (KM Swiss Coffee). I did the wallpaper and paint while my son handled the miter saw. We didn't have enough clamps to glue the moulding to more than one door at a time, and since the glue took 30 minutes to set it all took a while.
The steps are all documented in sheesharee's link below, as well as in Rhoda's blog that she's linked. If anyone has any questions I'll be glad to answer them
It's not a perfect job, but we're very happy with the change from boring to polished.
Still to do: some touch-up painting of the woodwork, add door knobs, and repaint the walls of the laundry room.
