Painting over wallpaper is a subject that is taboo amongst many in the professional painting industry, however if your wallpaper meets certain criteria you can paint over wallpaper with little or no problems. The first thing that you will need to do is determine if the wallpaper is in good enough condition to paint over. By this, I mean that you must check for any loose seams, rips or tears in your wallpaper. If you have any loose seams they must be glued prior to painting. If you have numerous rips or tears, then you will be well advised to go ahead and remove the wallpaper instead of trying to paint over it.
If you have determined that your wallpaper is in a condition where you can paint over it, there are a few items which you will need to to get started. You will need primer, paint, a paint roller and tray, joint compound, drop cloths, a utility knife and painters tape.
If you have wallpaper in your home then there is a good chance that at some point you will have to repair a damaged or ripped section of the wallpaper. If this is the case, then you will need a remnant of your original wallpaper in order to complete this project. If you wallpaper is not very old then there is a good chance that they still make your wallpaper pattern and you should be able to order a roll from wherever you purchased your original wallpaper.
