Here are few things to keep in mind when applying wallpaper: New Walls – Must be thoroughly cured, dry, primed and sized. Previously painted walls – Fill cracks or holes with patching paste, then sand smooth. Spot-prime the patches and size all walls to be papered. Walls with old wallcovering – Remove, patch, sand and clean. Be sure the old adhesive is gone and the walls are completely dry before sizing.
