Shower Redo: More Aluminum!
The shower in my trailer was lined with heavy vinyl wallpaper over wood and aluminum walls. It started to peel a bit a while ago, which was a good thing as I wanted to remove it. I stripped it off of the wood walls easily and discovered that given its degree of adhesion to the aluminum walls that I would just leave it in place there. Makes a nice decorative accent to have a bit of it.
The plywood walls are in beautiful condition so it appears that the vinyl wallpaper has done its job over the past 25 years. Now what to replace it with? I read here about folks painting with Krylon Brush On Fusion and Rustoleum Countertop paint and they seem happy with the results. But after thinking about it for a while I decided to cover the wood walls with - drum roll - aluminum! I'm thinking that I'm going to love the way it looks and that it should be a pretty solid solution. Same caulking issues as outside, but maintenance should be minimal.
I'm open to hints and advice. I know someone who is an experienced aluminum worker and I'm thinking of having him do the work. He may have his own ideas, but what kind of aluminum sheeting do you recommend?
I'll post some before pictures in the next couple of days and some after pictures when it's completed.
