There is no way to know what you painted it with.  You can re-paint it with default and it will revert to what you assigned it in the wall type.

Actually if you used the "Paint" tool to apply the material you can see the name of the material. Just go into the paint tool and hover over the surface of the wall and look at the tooltip that pops up. if there is a material applied to that surface it will list it in the tooltip
