Can you hang wallpaper over wallpaper?
AnswerYou can Hang wallpaper over wallpaper but it tends to not hold to the walls as well as hanging in on a bare surface. However, if you must, first paint over the old wallpaper with an oil-based paint. If you use acrylic the paper may bubble up. To make a perfectly smooth surface, mud the wall with drywall mud and then smooth by sanding. Finally, paint it again and then hang the paper. Most of the time it is easier just to remove the old paper. See the external link for more information.

Will Wallpaper sizing work hanging wallpaper over wallpaper?
Will Wallpaper sizing work hanging wallpaper over wallpaper Yes, but it has been my experience that you will never be fully happy with the results. I always remove old wallpaper prior to changing to a different wall-covering. It just makes for a better finished job. Note: If you decide to remove the old wallpaper I use white vinegar and warm water applying several coats, after removing as much of the "easily" removed loose paper.

Can you paint wallpaper?
yes, wallpaper can be painted over. if the paint is going to be a lighter color than the wallpaper or the wallpaper has a printed pattern, it might need an undercoat so the wallpaper pattern doesn't show through. try painting a small area first to see how it will look. I've painted over wallpaper many times with good results. caution- if the wallpaper has metal inks in the design the paint may not adhere to those areas in the pattern. its always best to remove the paper.

How do I hang wallpaper in a doll's house?
cut it out and use super glue _______ Another answer It will be a good idea to measure first -- maybe measure twice, then cut scrap paper to your measurements and verify with your paper that the shape fits in the space where you want the wallpaper to hang. Once you've trimmed and otherwise fashioned the paper to fit the wall, then you can use it as a pattern or template to cut the wallpaper -- which you don't want to waste. Depending on the material currently on the wall, ask a craft expert which glue to use to affix the wallpaper to the wall of the doll house.
