What is the easiest way to texture (orange peel) wallpaper after the primer is applied?

I hope you aren't saying that you just painted over wall paper?

Check this out. Not only is it a good idea to paint wallpaper, why bother removing coverplates. Just takes extra time! And this is promotion for a pro painting company?

That's Tanya Memme, hostess of the show, and former Miss Canada or something.

Yup that's her alright...my girlfriend Tanya.

I love it when she puts down that franchise, CertaPro painters, not once but twice - and they don't even know it!! "I learn something every day" and "Josh here will be helping you painters out" (Josh is an 11-yr old boy!)!!!

Doesn't say much for the talent pool of that franchise! Way to go Tanya!

PS: for all they guys who missed it, she made them look stupid...

I guess they do a lot of painting for the show. Near every episode there are at least three shots of the label for the brand of paint used---Behr. Need I say more? It is not a show about quality. In fairness, Roger is decent at color and staging houses for sale. Tanya fills in with the cleavage and designer fashions (even while pitching in to paint with crappy rollers and brushes) or the perfect pedicure and red toenails in open sandals when moving heavy furniture. Just the kind of DIY message that should be getting out there! I love it!
