This will probably make you cringe...

  How do you paint your walls? I found some paint at Home Depot tonight, that is made for painting formica. I have several sets of cultured marble tub surrounds, but I'm concerned  about the weight.

This is click-lock laminate flooring. Specifically it is TrafficMASTER Ainsley Oak 7 mm Thick x 7-9/16 in Wide x 50-3/4 in. Length Laminate Flooring (26.80 sq. ft. / case) We wanted a tough, easy to clean wall covering and landed on laminate flooring. It is smooth, available in lots of colours and in stock, unlike the paneling which was ugly, vinyl particle board and ugly. Did I mention it was ugly? The flooring doesn't have those horrible grooves in it either like the uber ugly paneling. The walls that are yellow (now a different yellow... took me 3 yellows to find the right yellow) are simply interior hollow core luan doors. It's a skoolie. When you have a skoolie, you are more willing to think outside the box than with a coach... at least that seems to be the case with us. One length of flooring ran from the original wire chase above the windows to within a few inches of the floor (we are putting in a very tall baseboard because I like a baseboard that is around 6 to 8 inches tall). The laminate walls wipe down easily and look great.

Oh and I have found a way to paint my "walls" too....
