Wallpapering - easy peazy, done that loads of times.
However, this time the underlying walls are a bit of mess. Most (but no
all) of the paint on the plaster came off with the previous paper, and
the plaster type varies too, mostly pink carlite, a few patches of dark
grey thistle and some white one coat stuff. Previous paper was painted
blown vinyl, so no issues with underlying background showing trough.
Going up this time is a very light coloured printed paper - what's the
chance of the patchy background showing through if I don't give it a
coat of paint?
(Its not the time to paint that's the problem, its that paint over glue
residue is a hideous mess and I like to give the walls a good clean
first if painting, but that is hard work!)
