Partly tiled walls

Hi, I know I saw the answer to this somewhere in a forum post, but I can't find it now. How do I texture a wall that has tiles halfway up, then paint the rest of the way? TIA

Re: Partly tiled walls

- Modify walls - set colour/texture of wall (top part)
- Modify walls- Modify baseboards - set height and colour/texture of baseboard

Re: Partly tiled walls

The wall already has a baseboard. So I need a baseboard, tile halfway up, then painted the rest of the way. I think it had something to do with creating a wainscoting, but I'm not sure how I'd do that.

Re: Partly tiled walls

In that case... The easiest thing to do is probably using a very thin box that you stick to the wall

Re: Partly tiled walls

I did it with the high baseboards as you suggested. It's not a big deal in that room.

Re: Partly tiled walls

You are right, there are quite a few posts about this. Using a high baseboard as 'wainscoting' may be the easiest way. Not too fond of using thin boxes, because they are always in the way when adjusting the wall or adding fixtures. For completeness of the thread, there is a third way: using a texture the height of the wall.

(see SF 346)
ok
