waterproof wallpaper

Does anyone have one of those sit-down showers whereby the walls are covered with a seemingly 'waterproof' wallpaper. It is old, and outdated. I want to replace it. Has anyone replaced this paper or do they go directly to one of those fibreglass sheets and cut to fit instead??? Any ideas would be helpful. Also, when I redo the wallpaper I want refinish the the actual basin by giving it a new finish/color. Right now it is that aged/dull yellow/beige. I dont want bright white, but an off white. Anyone recommmend any specific product/process for spraying it? Can I spray it in place?

Thanks!!!!

A balmy +34C here!!!!!! Ugh....

We had the same issue and solved it by sanding the wallpaper and painting it with a paint designed to cover old laminate counter tops. We did this three years ago and it is holding up perfectly. I believe the paint is a Ben Moore product.

We have the same problem with the tub. We will be painting it with POR-15 Whitecoat this year. They sell another product called Hardnose (or something close to this name) that comes in a few colors that would work too.

You can replace the existing wallpaper with vinyl wallpaper or paper over it, just be sure that your existing substrate is solid so it will adhere and not fall down.
