Painting Over Wallpaper

When you yourself have tried to get rid of previous wallpaper you’re properly conscious of just what a hard work it is. Even though there are numerous items accessible to help you in eliminating the wallpaper they never seem to perform to the level they’re expected to.

Painting Over Wallpaper

There might be a simpler treatment for this dilemma of eliminating wallpaper. If your wallpaper is in satisfactory form, you can just color over it. Before you choose paint over your current wallpaper, make sure the wallpaper is on acceptable form to color over.

If you will find areas that need some glue, do it before painting. If there are several such areas, you must proceed to eliminate the wallpaper as opposed to wanting to color around it.

There are numerous materials that you should precisely use for coloring over wallpaper. You will need a blade, drop clothes, brush, roller, color tray, sandpaper and tape as the chief materials.

Start with taping all parts that lay alongside the wallpapered walls that may get color on them. Protect all those parts with painter’s masking tape. Position the drop clothes on the bordering floor. A Plastic sheath can be used as the substitute of drop clothes.

It’s better if you are able to attach the drop clothes with the tapes. This would help in keeping color off the floor completely. Disposable plastic drop clothes are typically really low-priced and simple to use. You can easily get them in hardware store or paint selling stores.

After you have covered the surrounding areas, make sure all the loosed parts of wallpaper are stitched well. When you finish reattaching the loose part of wallpaper, make sure the joints are all fine. You can use joint compound to make the joint stronger. Then, sand the joints to give them a smooth finish.

You’re then prepared to use a primer to the wallpaper. Use paint roller, brush and primer. Apply a thin coat of primer on the wallpaper. This part is important because primer helps the paint to tightly grip the wallpaper. So if you fail to apply the primer properly, then the paint will soon starts peeling, cracking and bubbling only to regret you did not remove the wallpaper before painting.

Then, it’s time for painting. Use the paint in the same way you applied primer. Once the paint gets dried, you will see the end product beautiful and enchanting. Since wallpaper removal is lengthy and boring task with poor end result, painting over them can be a great alternative.
