Painting a wall

Just wondering if anyone has ever painted an inside wall? I have an 05 Kountry Star 3910, 4 slides and there is a wall about 20 inches wide, 7 feet tall that's just that plain bland wall board, thought about a big tall picture or something but the fridge water dispenser door hits the wall.Thinking
About a darker textured paint or something.
What do you think?

I don't see why not. Check to see if it is vynal covered drywall. If so, you will need to prep the surface to get latex paint to stick.

We painted my Sisters modular and had a hard time getting the paint to stick. When tacky it tends to peal off the wall.

Good luck.

Due to a big mistake on my part I had to paint our bathroom. Start by washing the walls with TSP. Then tape everything off and apply a good quality latex primer. Follow this with two coats of good quality latex paint. I brushed it on to achieve a bit more texture.

Whether the wall board is finished wood or plastic/vinyl, clean and 'roughen' it with a green 3m pad before primer.

Took the words right off my keyboard. Good luck and hope all turns out as I'm sure it will.

Easy way to renew your coach. We painted the bedroom and changed the light fixtures plus new bed covers. DW loves it. No problem with using a good quality latex paint after cleaning the walls. Just let your wishes guide you and enjoy.
