i had someone put up some paint-able wallpaper one time for me.(i don't wallpaper and never want to wallpaper) The rooms had 80 year old old wallpaper with many layers that just couldn't be removed without hacking the crap out of the drywall. when i finished it was a mess (with 50% of the wallpaper not coming off) and the whole room needed to be re-drywalled.

what I did was apply oil-based coverstain over that mess and then sanded it,prepped it the best i could to smooth out the gouges and rough spots,then sealed the mudded areas.

it looked great after the wallpaper was applied. i then painted it. the customer was very happy.

I've had many experiences with wallpaper. I dread the sight of wallpaper but have learned to deal with it . I did a duplex recently and the wallpaper was the WORST I've encountered!! Halfway through the removal process the investor decided I should sand and mud over the remaining wallpaper and paint. It was not the route I wanted to go but he's the boss so I did as instructed. It didn't look as good as it would've had I removed all the wallpaper but it's a rental and he didn't care. In hindsight I should've just skinned the walls with 1/4 drywall and painted. It 's the one job I couldn't take pride in.

Hack alert! aka Apartment painting

There is a thing I do in a complex that wanted to discontinue the wallpaper in their bathrooms and kitchens. The paper was originally hung on bare drywall and taken down and hung again and sometimes layers thick when the previous layers were too difficult to remove without tearing up the wall. Some of that stuff has been there for twenty years and still tears drywall paper every time you try to remove it. Really, this drywall should just be replaced at this point. If you go ahead and tear up all the drywall paper, you can mud it up but you're messing with the structural integrity of the rock.

I pull the facing off, and soak it with guardz from a pump up sprayer and backroll. Any loose places that bubble bigger than a fist are removed immediately. I let that dry three hours and coat it with an oil base primer. The next day I do a little clean up skimming and blow a light orange peel. Prime and paint. If you mask your tile with paper and no plastic, be careful because the Guardz will glue it to the floor

Don't you worry Bill! If this proposal that includes a bunch of wallcovering removal gets accepted Friday, I will make you proud, haha.

What I appreciate, Josh, is that I don't even have to post my objections to painted over wallpaper anymore. Everyone now knows that stripping is the best course of action if the paper is not married to the sheet rock.

good luck with that.

I bought myself a new orbital sander that takes a 1/3 sheet, can't wait to test it out and see if it is quicker than my 1/4 sheet palm sander. But it certainly is quieter than that 30+ year old Makita.

I have no experiences related to it, i guess repainting is the only solution.
