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.

SOURCE: adding wall paper border

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

You will have to paint over your new paint with a primer called BIN which will dry in about an hour. Then you can put your color coat on that. Problem solved.

I recommend using MR (Moisture Resistant) drywall for the bathroom, and possibly for the basement if there are moisture issues. It is not much more expensive, and it can save you a big headache later

Old pink and purple bathroom needs help.

The consensus here is a medium to pale/light blue - black or dark blue would blend better, but it would be one darn dark bathroom. You want something that blends, not accentuates the purple.

Hope this helps :)
