Painting Over Wallpaper


Removing wallpaper can be a tedious and time consuming chore.

In addition, if the wallpaper is adhering well to the drywall, its removal can cause substantial damage to the underlying drywall.

The cost to remove the wallpaper, and repair the subsequent damage, is often prohibitive. A more cost-effective alternative exists. While painting over wallpaper is also time consuming, it can require considerably less labor than removal and repair.

The process begins by applying an oil based primer/ sealer. Because the adhesives used on most wallpapers are water based, a latex primer will soften the glue, resulting in bubbles and peeling wallpaper.

An oil based primer will prevent this, as well as prevent the wallpaper pattern from bleeding through the paint.

Often, after the primer has been applied, areas which were not adhering well will bubble. These areas, as well as any other loose wallpaper, should be removed by cutting with a razor blade and carefully pulling the wallpaper.

A slight depression will result, which can be floated with a thin layer of joint compound.

After the primer has dried, all seams should be floated with a thin layer of joint compound. Occasionally, the entire surface must be floated, particularly if the wallpaper has a texture.

The areas floated should be lightly sanded, and a texture can then be applied. Two coats of paint will complete the process.
