Ye ol' "Paint over existing wallpaper" question.... (don't laugh too loud)!!


Posted by Keith on April 10th, 2001 06:11 PM

Hello all..

I'm sure that this question has been asked (I did my homework but couldn't find the answer since this discussion board only goes back to December something 2000)... Anyhoo...can I paint over wallpaper?? I've been told that if the paper is in good condition (which it is) the only thing that I have to do is sand it lightly, put joint compound over the seams, primer and paint...)... Make no mistake about it...this is COSMETIC only..We're selling in 6 or less months and just want to spruce things up a bit...

Anyone know the lifetime for paint over wallpaper?? If I DO paint over wallpaper do I even need to prime first??

Thanks in advance...

-Keith
