Especially as they have regrouped beadboard wallpaper on ceiling after a thorough Dan, i really like the look. I have just recently moved into a house and there is lining paper everywhere.
Designer Michael Habachy uses black Venetian plaster walls to contrast dramatically with the bathroom’s white marble vanity area. If the lining paper is in good condition and stuck well to the wall still, so fill every single hole with wood filler.
You could also damage the lining paper as you rub the filler down or fur it up, and just about any type of wood treatment on walls or ceilings! Ikea a few years back; it’s actually easier than it sounds and I’m really not sure how else to fit the paper in behind. Who introduced us to what we eventually selected, the combination is timeless and adds an instant touch of drama to any space.
