Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ladysmyth Fooled several carpenters!
Tiny bathroom and the need to fit behind several immovable objects meant that there was no way to use real bead board, so I though I would give this product a try. The results were stunning. I did buy and install nice wide baseboards and a solid chair rail, filled minor imperfections with Alex, and painted it all as one, which really adds to the illusion. We had trades in and out of the house at the time working on other things, and I got a kick out of one after the other telling me what I a nice job I had done installing the wainscot and then refusing to believe it wasn't wood until they had handled it and examined it up close.
I did use extra paste (simpler in the long run) which gave me a little more time to slip things into perfect alignment.
We have recently moved and now I get another chance to 'play' with this excellent product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fiddler great product, but be aware of possible drawbacks
I put this on my walls, and it looks great. But 2 things I noticed: 1) I have an old house, and not every corner & wall is straight. This wallpaper has a strong vertical pattern, so some wonky corners in my house look a bit more uneven than they would with a less "vertical" pattern. It's pretty subtle though. 2) This paintable wallpaper is thicker than a regular wallpaper. So corners a little tricky - the paper doesn't bend perfectly. I was able to work around this with a little ingenuity (the pattern has nice 'breaks' that are helpful) - but again you need to choose carefully. All in all it looks great up, though!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by youngdeconut Great product!
I used this to cover a wall in my bedroom - we had removed 60s-era wallpaper, only to find that pieces of the plaster wall had been removed along with it, even though we had rented a wallpaper steamer. This paper was very easy to use (our first time wallpapering) and I have gotten compliments from everyone who has seen the room. Once painted, the lines between the sections of wallpaper are not even visible. I plan to use the Damask version in another room to solve the same problem. This is a wonderful product, and by far the most inexpensive option I could find to completely cover my damaged walls.
These pictures are terrible as they were taken with my phone, but maybe it helps give the idea slightly. The room is all white, I painted the papered wall the same as the rest of the room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EAPM Easy to apply and looks great on! I put a wood chair rail on the top and you could not tell it was wallpaper and not bead board. I would definitely use this product gain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anne After hanging, wait four days before you judge.
I had put this on my powder room walls and was so displeased to see lumps all over the wallpaper. This was my first time hanging wallpaper and I was sure I had done something wrong. Maybe I had put too much glue? Maybe I just hung it wrong...who knows. I was prepared to call in professionals to rip it all out and put up regular beadboard. Well I went to bed, woke up the next morning, looked at the wallpaper and surprisingly it looked like many of the lumps had receded. The same story for the following three days until finally, the wallpaper was as smooth as beadboard. With a coat of paint, looks just like the real thing. So my advice to whomever hangs this wallpaper, if it doesn't look right at first, wait a few days and it may clear up.
