we have recently put up blown vinyl wallpaper in our kitchen (the whole house has terrible walls) and have decided to paint it.

Luckily enough there is not loads of wall space in there so i decided start painting it with a 2" brush. OUCH!!!!! then though maybe a paint pad would be better (too many white bits!!) personally i am rubbish wuth a roller get more on me and floor than the wall!

What would you use to paint the walls? I am about 1/2 way though and it looks like i am going to need another coat to cover the white bits that have appeared as the paint has dried. Is there anything i can do to make sure the paint is evenly covering the blown vinyl???

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. i have read since starting painiting that most decorators do not recommend painting blown vinyl!!!
