Hi you never mentioned wheather the paint is gloss, emulsion etc?
if its emulsion it should be fine paste the border, draw some guide lines where you want the border to go so when you come to put it on you will know where it has to go, wipe it over with a damp sponge to get the excess paste off it, otherwise when it dries you will see the residue of the paste.
You can get border adhesive which is really good.

Good luck

A bolt won't tighten all the way just keeps spinning, but it also won't unscrew out of the wall. What should I do to get this bolt out without stripping the thing?

Yes just pull it out - it will pull out the anchor on the screw, then replace it with a new larger anchor and screw. or fill the hole and re drill a new hole the right size.

Can I paint the wallboard that is in my bathroom?it is very smooth, but old. I plan to replace it around the tub with ceramic tile.

I think you can paint the old wallboard but you should get some advice from an experienced one before doing wallboard painting. You can also have a look at shower enclosures where you can find various bathroom accessories that will make your bathroom more elegant and attractive.

I'm having trouble removing my Moen towel bar to paint my bathroom. Is there a special tool needed to remove it? Please help.

First off you need to pry off the cap thats facing you (most models). Then there should be a little hole on the side for each one that needs an allen wrench to unscrew off the wall.
