Wallpapering over old wallpaper backing. Before you can skim coat wallpaper with a layer of joint compound, you must test the procedure in a small area. Hi,i have started stripping the wallpaper off in my living room ready to redecorate.as the paper is coming off very easily,it leaves behind the backing paper,i asume its a wallpaper that does that?.it looks sound enough,just wondering if it should be ok to leave it on and paper over it?,never done it before because ive always feared it bubleing up etc. I stripped old wallpaper from a bathroom but found out that the previous owners put plaster over parts of older wallpaper underneath and the paper isn't coming off easy.
However, there is not too much you can do with wood paneling to make the room look different, and after awhile, you get tired of looking at the same walls. It is much easier to wallpaper over a stripped wall as it avoids creases and air bubbles appearing when you hang the new wallpaper. Wallpaper can be very difficult to remove throughly, especially if there is more then one layer of it.
Removing wallpaper also means you get a great finish and your new wallpaper or paint lasts much longer. For old ugly camper wallpaper: Half the wall has the paper backing on it still.
However one thing to consider is that it does not apply to the backing on wallpapers such as vinyls where you can strip the top layer leaving what looks like a lining. However, if there is more than one layer of wallpaper on your wall, remove them. Painting over wallpaper doesn’t always give a smooth finish and it is much harder to remove in the future.
Wallpaper adhesives stick best on porous surfaces, and coated papers are known to not be absorbent whatsoever. There are, however, a number of things to consider before you make the decision to paper over old wallpaper. This is a guide about painting over wallpaper.
