Simply Build It

To the best of our knowledge there is no paint that will cover this Tracey but these days its not hard to get off either. You can use a product called X-Tex which will dissovle it allowing you to simply scrape it off the wall, You are left then with a wall you can paint or paper. Here is a link to the X-Tex.If you do go down this route please let us know how you get on as it may helpothers. ... mover.html
