repapering the walls. I believe that would be considerably easier and cheaper, and there is an almost infinite variety of papers to choose from including some with very faint patterns.

Is this truly "cheesecloth" or is it "lining paper"? Some types of lining paper have a fabric backing and/or surface. The purpose of using it is to provide a smoother surface for conventional wallpaper application on top of it. Generally, the lining paper is applied over the wall surface using a vinyl adhesive. It is then coated with sizing as one would do to a conventional wall surface before applying the finish wallpaper. Lining paper is very useful for covering cracked walls, grooved wood paneling, etc., when wallpaper is desired. It definitely does not provide a good surface for painting, unless you are planning on using a textured paint. The fabric texture will show through ordinary paint.
