Hi, I have to paint over my lovely quaint flowery wallpaper in the hallway;
the woodchip, which is a nice lilac colour has to be painted too. I'm
selling the house soon, and apart from me and the previous owners that chose
the colour scheme, no one likes it at all! So I have been instructed to
paint it a nice warm cream colour.
When I moved in here I had to paint over some LOUD wallpaper and tried ye
olde famous 'ONCE', obviously called that due to how many times a fool buys
the stuff. I do know that I need to do several coats of paint, but is it
better to put white paint on first? Will it somehow cover up the patterned
paper more easily.
Paper removal is not an option as the wood chip is excellently adhered to
the plaster, but alas the plaster to the wall is not...
And hints and top tips please :-)
I bet WARM CREAM is a darn sight more expensive than magnolia too... grumble
